Notebook: Heat 115, Celtics 111


Posted Thursday May 31, 2012 12:51AM

By Shandel Richardson, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: The Miami Heat defeated the Boston Celtics 115-111 in overtime in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals Wednesday at AmericanAirlines Arena.

The Heat hold a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

Miami was able to withstand a performance for the ages from Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo, who finished with a career-high 44 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds. Heat forward LeBron James led the Heat with 34 points and 10 rebounds.

The Heat rallied from a 15-point, first-half deficit behind a strong third quarter. The Celtics then sent the game into overtime with a 3-pointer from guard Ray Allen with 34.3 seconds that tied it at 99. Miami had two chances to win in regulation, but James missed a layup and fadeaway jumper as time expired.

The Heat then closed things out behind Wade and James. James had a put-back basket and then found Udonis Haslem underneath the rim for a layup. Wade iced it with a three-point play that made it 110-105 with 59 seconds left.

QUOTABLE: "It has to be the hard way. It always seems to be that competitive when we play against this team. Tonight, it didn't let us down ...It was ugly at times. We couldn't get into a great rhythm."
-- Heat coach Erik Spoelstra

THE STAT: Rondo played all 53 minutes (first time he's played every minute in a game), putting together one of the greatest playoff performances in NBA history. He shot 16-for-24 from the field and made 10 of 12 free throws. Rondo is the first player in NBA history to tally 44 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds in a playoff game.

TURNING POINT: With 1:35 left in overtime and the score tied at 105, Rondo felt he was hit in the face by Wade on a driving layup, but no foul was called. The Heat then scored the next seven points to take control.

QUOTABLE II: "It is what it is. LeBron (James) took 24 free throws and our team took 29 ... You can't get distracted. We will not get distracted in this series. We have to get it out of us and move on."
-- Celtics coach Doc Rivers

HOT: Rondo put together one of the best first halves of the postseason, totaling 22 points and seven assists. He was responsible for 36 of Boston's 53 points. His 12 free throw attempts also proved he was much more aggressive than in Game 1.

NOT: The Heat could have used better free-throw shooting in such a close game. They finished just 31-for-47 from the foul line.

GOOD MOVE: The Heat usually wait until the fourth quarter before putting James on Rondo, but Spoelstra made the move early in the third. It slowed Rondo just enough to start the second half to allow the Heat to creep back into the game.

BAD MOVE: Wade was brilliant in the third quarter, but the Heat need him to string together a few performances where he plays that way an entire game. Without Chris Bosh in the lineup, it leaves too much of a burden on James.

NOTABLE: The Heat are now 6-0 all-time in overtime playoff games. ... Bosh (stomach) completed his third straight workout Wednesday. There still remains no update on the timetable on his return. ... Greg Stiemsma picked up four fouls in the first quarter, becoming the first player to accomplish the feat since Pistons forward Austin Daye did it Dec. 18, 2009. ... The Heat are now 6-0 all-time in postseason overtime games. ... Miami's 15-point comeback is the largets in franchise playoff history. ...

UP NEXT: Game 3 is Friday in Boston (8:30 ET, ESPN).
