THE FACTS: The Miami Heat defeated the Boston Celtics 97-87 Wednesday in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. The Heat won the series 4-1, and will play either Chicago or Atlanta in the conference finals.

Guard Dwyane Wade led all scorers with 34 points, but it was the fourth-quarter play of LeBron James that propelled the Heat into the next round. James, who scored 33 points, had three baskets in the closing moments to help Miami close out the series. The Heat trailed 87-81 late in the fourth quarter, but finished with a 16-0 run.

The Celtics were led by Ray Allen's 18 points and Kevin Garnett, who scored 15. But they were undermanned in the final moments because of injuries to Rajon Rondo and Jermaine O'Neal, who were both were sidelined with back problems. Rondo was also battling a sore elbow he dislocated in Game 3.

QUOTABLE: "It took a 5 1/2-month season for us to get to this point ... to exorcise these demons. It was a series all of us wanted since training camp."
-- Heat coach Erik Spoelstra

THE STAT: The Heat's Big 3 of James, Chris Bosh and Wade combined for 81 of the 97 points. They combined for 23 of the 26 fourth-quarter points. The stat was more damaging, considering Boston's trio of Garnett, Paul Pierce and Allen totaled just 45 points.

TURNING POINT: Trailing 87-81, the Heat regouped at the right time. They scored the game's final 16 points. James led the way by scoring eight points, including two 3-pointers, during the stretch. After Bosh tied the score on a dunk, James hit the last of his 3-pointers to put the Heat ahead for good.

QUOTABLE II: "Those two guys are monsters. When they're making shots, it makes it very difficult."
-- Celtics coach Doc Rivers said of Wade and James.

HOT: Wade and James. It's hard to single out their performances. Wade carried the load for three quarters, leaving James to close it out. They combined to shoot 24 of 39 and score 67 points.

NOT: Rondo spent most of the game battling the pain from dislocated elbow. He was effective in the first quarter, but lost a step after colliding with Heat forward James Jones in the second quarter. He was in so much pain, he was kept on the bench most of the quarter, finishing with six points on 3 of 5 shooting.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Wade shot 13 of 19 from the field. His stats would have been better had he not missed seven free throws. Wade also grabbed 10 rebounds and had five assists.

INSIDE THE ARENA: Singer Gloria Estefan, golfer Jack Nicklaus, former Heat player Rony Seikaly.

GOOD MOVE: After Wade was so dominant for three quarters, the Heat turned the ball over to James. He has received much criticism for struggling in late-game moments, but showed he was able to be a "closer." Without his play down the stretch, the Heat may have been preparing for Game 6 instead of the next round.

BAD MOVE: Was playing Rondo a good move by Rivers? It's debatable because Rondo appeared to hurt the team more than help it. He was a liability on offense and defense. With Delonte West (10 points) playing so well, it may have been better to sit Rondo.

NOTABLE: The Heat are in the Eastern Conference finals for the fourth time in the franchise's 23-year history. ... If Chicago defeats the Atlanta Hawks Thursday, the next series would begin Sunday night in Chicago. Otherwise, it begins Wednesday in Chicago or Miami, depending who wins. ... Heat forward Juwan Howard scored five points in his first significant action of the postseason. He played 19 minutes. It is Howard's first time advancing past the second round in his 17-year career.

UP NEXT: The Heat will host either the Atlanta Hawks or Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals.
