Notebook: Heat 93, Celtics 79


Posted Tuesday May 29, 2012 12:08AM

By Shandel Richardson, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: The Miami Heat defeated the Boston Celtics 93-79 in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals Monday at AmericanAirlines Arena.

The Heat hold a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

Forward LeBron James led the Heat with 32 points and 13 rebounds while Dwyane Wade added 22 points and seven assists. Miami led from start to finish and controlled the action with the exception of the second quarter.

After an 11-point first quarter, the Celtics managed to tie the score at 46 at halftime. The Heat then regained the control with a big third quarter, where they outscored Boston 26-15.

The Celtics trailed by double digits most of the second half, struggling to crack the Heat's tough defense. Boston shot just 39 percent from the field.

The Celtics were led by Kevin Garnett's 23 points and 10 rebounds.

QUOTABLE: "At times, it was a strange game. Some good runs, both teams. I think we felt we could have played better. I'm sure they felt the same thing but we were able to find a way to grind it and you have to do this against this team."
-- Heat coach Erik Spoelstra

THE STAT: The Heat had a postseason-high 11 blocked shots. It was proof of their defensive dominance.

TURNING POINT: For a half, it appeared the Celtics would make a game of it. But the Heat took it to another level in the third quarter. After a slow start by Wade, he scored 10 points in the decisive quarter.

QUOTABLE II: "In the third quarter, the game just got away from us. I thought we rushed. I thought our offense was rushed. I thought never got into our rhythm as far as getting on one side of the floor to the other, second and third options."
-- Celtics coach Doc Rivers

HOT: James and Wade continue to play at this high level. This is what the rest of the league feared when they joined forces in the summer of 2010. They combined to shoot 21 of 35 from the field.

NOT: Garnett did not receive any help from Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo, who combined to shoot 14 of 45. The Celtics also can't afford to shoot 11 of 21 from the free throw line.

GOOD MOVE: The Heat are at their best when the supporting cast contributes. Shane Battier, Mario Chalmers and Mike Miller were all given opportunities. They made the most of them, combining for 27 points.

BAD MOVE: The Celtics were whistled for four technical fouls, a sign they lost some poise. An experienced team should know better than to let officiating dictate its mood.

NOTABLE: Heat forward Chris Bosh (stomach) completed his second straight workout Monday. There is no timetable on his return, but Spoelstra said he is pleased with his progress. The Heat fell just one block short of the franchise record for blocks (12) in a playoff game.

UP NEXT: Game 2 is Wednesday at AmericanAirlines Arena.
