Heat-Celtics notebook


By Brian Robb, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: Rajon Rondo played the fourth quarter despite dislocating his left elbow earlier in the half, helping to propel the Boston Celtics to a 97-81 victory over the Miami Heat. Rondo finished with six points and 11 assists in the heroic effort, as the win cut Miami's series lead to 2-1 in the best-of-seven series. Kevin Garnett keyed Boston's crucial second-half surge and led all scorers and rebounders with 28 points and 18 rebounds. Paul Pierce also chipped in 27 points, including five 3-pointers. Dwyane Wade had 23 points in the setback for the visitors.

QUOTABLE: "Once he [Rondo] walked out [of the locker room], it didn't surprise me. We got a bunch of guys like that [on this team]. They just play and find a way. And that's what he did."
-- Boston coach Doc Rivers on Rondo's return from a dislocated elbow

THE STAT: Garnett asserted his will in the post during the third quarter, scoring 14 of his 28 points in the frame. The veteran power forward was 7-for-8 over those 12 minutes, nearly outscoring Miami's team by himself as the Heat finished the quarter with a mere 15 points.

TURNING POINT: Boston's starting lineup came out of the locker room with a strong sense of urgency after entering the halftime break down two. The Celtics started the second half by outscoring Miami 16-4 over the 4:35 of the third period, to help themselves build a double-digit lead. The Heat got no closer than eight points the rest of the way.

QUOTABLE II: "They played with their championship DNA that they have. We can learn a lot by their effort that they put forth tonight."
-- Wade

HOT: Pierce -- The Celtics' captain was 5-for-7 from downtown, including two crucial treys in the fourth quarter on his way to the 27-point outing. Pierce's hot outside shooting was contagious for Boston, which is now shooting 50.9 percent as a team from deep through the first three games of the series.

NOT: Chris Bosh -- The final piece of Miami's "Big Three" struggled in his first postseason road game in Boston. Bosh, who played with a pinched nerve in his neck, not only allowed Garnett's offensive explosion, but also missed five of his six shots from the field. The former Raptor finished with just six points and five rebounds, well below his averages of 16.1 points and 9.1 boards for the series.

QUOTABLE III: "I thought I could try to change the game's momentum by getting to the ball defensively [in the fourth quarter]. I only need two legs for that."
-- Rondo

INSIDE THE ARENA: Red Sox slugger David Ortiz watched the game from courtside, after his squad defeated the Minnesota Twins in a Saturday matinee. Milan Lucic, forward for the Boston Bruins, also was in attendance.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Joel Anthony -- Miami's backup center was a major bright spot for Erik Spoelstra, as he posted playoff career-highs with 12 points and 11 rebounds in 37 minutes of action.

NOTABLE: Shaquille O'Neal made his Celtic postseason debut late in the first quarter, after missing more than a month of action with a sprained calf. The 39-year-old center received a raucous ovation from the TD Garden crowd upon entering the game, and finished with two points, an assist and a steal in eight minutes. ... Rondo suffered his elbow dislocation after a violent fall with 7:02 remaining in the third quarter. On the play, the Celtics' point guard got tangled up with Wade, and both players fell backwards while landing harshly on Rondo's left elbow. The All-Star was assisted to the locker room by the training staff, but Rondo returned to action at the start of the fourth quarter to the surprise of the entire arena. Rivers mentioned the injury would be a "major concern" going forward after the game. ... Delonte West also suffered a bruised shoulder in the first half, but returned to action. ... LeBron James only had 15 points, seven rebounds and four assists. ... Miami did get a major boost from its bench, from not only Anthony, but guard Mario Chalmers, who chipped in 17 points in 30 minutes. ... The Celtics limited the Heat to just five fast-break points, and won the battle on the boards (39-36) and in the paint (42-40).
