Notebook: Celtics 101, Heat 91


Posted Saturday June 2, 2012 1:12AM

By Brian Robb, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: Kevin Garnett dominated down low with 24 points and 11 rebounds as the Boston Celtics cruised in the second half to a 101-91 win over the Miami Heat in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals. With the victory, Boston now trails Miami 2-1 in the best-of-seven-series. LeBron James had 34 points to help keep the Heat competitive throughout the contest, but the Celtics had their way with Miami for the majority of the final three quarters on both ends. Balanced scoring from Garnett, Rajon Rondo, (21 points, 10 assists) and Paul Pierce (23 points) keyed the Celtics' interior attack that allowed the hosts to build a 24-point lead in the third quarter and never look back. Dwyane Wade added 18 points for Miami, helping them close the deficit to eight points in the fourth quarter but it was too little too late for the visitors.

QUOTABLE: "Not just scoring. Kevin does all the little things. He does all the intangibles defensively. He's out best help defender, our best communicator. I can go on and on..."
-- Rondo on importance of Garnett

THE STAT: After managing to average just 32 points in the paint over the first two games of the series, the Celtics attacked the basket relentlessly in Game 3, tallying 58 points in the painted area against a lackluster defensive effort by the Heat.

TURNING POINT: After a hard foul by Udonis Haslem on Garnett with 8:57 remaining in the second quarter, the Celts' emotional leader did eight pushups before pulling himself up off the parquet floor. The TD Garden crowd roared for the display and the Celtics bottled that energy for the rest of the quarter, outscoring Miami 23-14 over that stretch to build a double-digit lead they did not relinquish.

QUOTABLE II: "We can't dig that big of a hole on ourselves. We were down 24 points. When you start fighting uphill any little mistake hurts, because you're trying to fight back the whole time."
-- James

HOT: James -- The league MVP was unstoppable early on in the contest, hitting seven of his first nine shots on his way on his way to scoring 16 of Miami's 28 first quarter points.

NOT: Shane Battier -- The grizzled veteran had hit five 3-pointers over the first two games of the series, but could not find his shooting touch from downtown in Game 3. The swingman went scoreless in 38 minutes of action and missed all four of his attempts from beyond the arc.

INSIDE THE ARENA: A star-studded crowd was on hand at TD Garden, including several members of the Boston Bruins, New England Patriots, and comedian Chris Rock.

QUOTABLE III: "The difference was our defensive energy which allowed us to run. We ran in the space."
-- Doc Rivers on the difference between tonight and first two games of the series

GOOD MOVE: After playing sparingly over the first two games of the series, Marquis Daniels was given his first opportunity at extended minutes by Rivers. The small forward made the most of his opportunity, scoring nine points and grabbing five rebounds in just 16 minutes of action. Daniels finished the game with a plus/minus of +16.

NOTABLE: Chris Bosh sat out his eighth straight game with an abdominal strain. He remains out indefinitely, according to Erik Spoelstra, although he did take part in the team's shootaround before Game 3. ... Boston controlled the glass in Game 3, outrebounding Miami 44-32 and limiting the Heat to just seven second chance points. ... Boston has won 19 of their past 21 home games. ... Dexter Pittman returned to the active roster after a three-game suspension for elbowing Lance Stephenson. He went scoreless in one minute of action. ... Avery Bradley and Jeff Green both watched the game next to Boston's bench. Bradley is out for the playoffs after undergoing shoulder surgery last week.
