Notebook: Heat 98, Celtics 79


Posted Friday June 8, 2012 1:09AM

By Brian Robb, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: LeBron James nearly matched his playoff career high with 45 points, as the Miami Heat ran away from the Boston Celtics with a 98-79 win in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals. With the victory, Miami has forced a winner-take-all Game 7 back in Miami on Saturday night, with a trip to the NBA Finals on the line. The reigning league MVP made sure of there would be a Game 7, playing at another level against Boston by scoring 30 of his 45 points in the first half on an array of tough baskets from all over the floor. The sensational start helped Miami sprint out to an early double-digit lead and they never looked back from there. James also grabbed a game-high 15 rebounds. Rajon Rondo had 21 points and 10 assists for Boston in the setback, as the Celtics dropped just their second game of this postseason at home.

QUOTABLE: "In an environment like this, you want to have a big game. I wanted to be there for my teammates, no matter what was going on throughout the course of the game. This was a gut-check for us."
-- James on his historic performance

THE STAT: James had 12 of Miami's 21 field goals in the first half, scoring 30 of his team's 55 points in the opening 24 minutes.

TURNING POINT: After Boston got within 10 points midway through the third quarter with a 6-0 run, the Heat did not allow the hosts to sustain the momentum, responding instead with four quick points. With the outburst, Boston had their comeback stall, as Miami maintained their double-digit lead for the remainder of the contest.

QUOTABLE II: "Nothing's been easy up until this point. You know, you can't expect it now. It is what it is. We're going take these cards and play them, and we're going to fight. A bunch of fighters in this locker room."
-- Kevin Garnett on having to play Game 7

HOT: James -- The 27-year-old came out of the gate red-hot Thursday night, hitting 12 of his first 14 shots from all over the floor, on his way to a postseason career-high 30 points in the first half. James is only the second player in NBA playoff history (Wilt Chamberlain being the other) to put up a 45-15-5 stat line in a single game.

NOT: Paul Pierce -- Boston's captain continued to struggle in his head-to-head battle against James, shooting just 4-of-18 on the night. Through the entire series, Pierce has hit just 33.6 percent of his shots, despite leading his team in field goal attempts, while playing with a sprained left MCL.

QUOTABLE III: "He played amazing. He was locked in from the beginning of the game like I've never seen him before. The shots he was making was unbelievable. He really put on an MVP performance tonight."
-- Dwyane Wade on James' performance

INSIDE THE ARENA: New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, along with head coach Bill Belichick watched from courtside at the Garden and received a rousing ovation from the crowd when they were shown on the Jumbotron.

QUOTABLE IV: "Now we get to play for all the marbles. This team has not done it the easy way this year. Maybe this is justified for us, go in there and do it."
-- Doc Rivers on playing Game 7 in Miami

NOTABLE: Boston had won 21 of their past 23 home games at TD Garden this season prior to the defeat. ... With the loss, Boston dropped to 11-14 in postseason closeout games during the past five years. ... The Celtics shot just 1-of-14 from 3-point range and have hit just 29.1 percent of their shots from beyond the arc during the series. ... Chris Bosh came off the bench for the second straight game since his return from a strained abdominal. He scored seven points and grabbed six rebounds in 28 minutes. ... Udonis Haslem got his second straight start at center. ... Miami wore their red alternate uniforms.
