Notebook: Celtics 94, Heat 90


Posted Wednesday June 6, 2012 12:52AM

By Shandel Richardson, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: The Boston Celtics defeated the Miami Heat 94-90 Tuesday in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals at AmericanAirlines Arena.

The Celtics now lead 3-2 in the best-of-seven series.

Forward Kevin Garnett led Boston with 26 points, including two free throws to seal it in the closing seconds. Forward Paul Pierce added 19 points, with none of them bigger than a 3-pointer to put the Celtics ahead with 52 seconds remaining.

The Heat, which led most of the opening three quarters, were led by LeBron James' 30 points. Guard Dwyane Wade had 27 points, but the Heat had no other players in double-figures.

Forward Chris Bosh returned after missing the last nine postseason games because of a strained abdominal muscle. He played just 14 minutes, scoring nine points and grabbing seven rebounds and did not play at all in the fourth quarter.

QUOTABLE: "They jumped on us at the beginning of the game and we just told our guys to just hang in there. Just hang in there. Don't overreact. Hang in there. The longer we're in the game, the better we'll play."
-- Celtics coach Doc Rivers

THE STAT: The Celtics held the Heat to 39 percent shooting, including 7 of 26 from the 3-point line.

THE STAT II: The Heat lost a playoff game for the first time when both Wade and James had 25 points or more. Miami was previously 7-0 in such games, which included the 2011 playoffs.

NOTABLE: Garnett had his ninth game this postseason with 20-plus points and 10-plus rebounds, which leads the NBA. ... Rajon Rondo's 13 assists was his 39th career playoff game with 10 or more assists, which set a franchise record. ... The Celtics are 8-1 this postseason when holding opponents under 90 points.

TURNING POINT: The Celtics had trailed throughout until a short spurt just before the end of the third quarter. They led by five entering the final quarter, giving them just enough confidence to steal a win in Miami.

QUOTABLE II: "It's probably like a boxer. You just got to go back to your corner right now. We all just have to huddle up and lean on each other. We're the only people we can depend on right now."
-- Heat coach Erik Spoelstra

HOT: It was arguably Garnett's best performance of this postseason. He was effective in the paint and on the perimeter and also altered some Heat shots in the lane.

NOT: James and Wade combined to shoot 21-for-47 from the field. While they came up with several big shots, many of their attempts were contested or did not come in the flow of the offense.

GOOD MOVE: Credit Rondo for fighting off his shooting struggles to continue his role as a facilitator. His shot just 3-for-15 from the field, but had a game-high 13 assists.

BAD MOVE: The Heat had no answer for the Celtics switching between man and zone defense. The confusion was evident with Miami's poor shooting. Rivers' strategy was mostly responsible for keeping Wade and James from shooting at high percentages.

UP NEXT: Game 6 is Thursday at TD Garden in Boston.
