Notebook: Heat 101, Celtics 88


Posted Sunday June 10, 2012 12:19AM

By Shandel Richardson, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: The Miami Heat defeated the Boston Celtics 101-88 Saturday in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals at AmericanAirlines Arena.

The Heat won the series 4-3, advancing to the NBA Finals. They will play at Oklahoma City in Game 1 Tuesday.

LeBron James led the Heat with 31 points and 12 rebounds while Dwyane Wade added 23 points, six rebounds and six assists. Forward Chris Bosh finished with 19 points and eight rebounds.

The Heat trailed by seven at halftime before tying the score at 73 entering the fourth quarter. Boston still held an 82-81 lead before things began to unravel. The Heat took control with a 10-2 run, capped by a 31-foot 3-pointer from James as the shot clock expired with 5:43 remaining in the game.

The Celtics were led by Rajon Rondo's 22 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists. Paul Pierce added 19 points.

QUOTABLE: "I guess that's what a seven-game Eastern Conference series is supposed to be like. It was good to see us come together in a very competitive series."
--Heat coach Erik Spoelstra

THE STAT: The Heat's Big Three (Bosh, James and Wade) scored the final 30 points for Miami to clinch a second consecutive trip to the NBA Finals.

TURNING POINT: The third quarter was perhaps the Heat's best of the postseason. They outscored the Celtics by seven, allowing them to overcome an 11-point first-half deficit. Balance was the key, with six different players scoring in the quarter.

QUOTABLE II: "We just got stagnant with the ball, stayed on one side. Yea, you're going to miss shots. The ball stayed on one side, we put them in transition. They went on a run and we couldn't get the offense going again."
-- Celtics guard Ray Allen on the team's fourth-quarter struggles

HOT: So much for the talk of James shrinking in the big moments. This marked the fifth game in the series he recorded at least 30 points and 10 rebounds.

NOT: Pierce started strong, but faded as the game progressed. It wasn't enough that Brandon Bass guarded James most of the way. Pierce just didn't produce enough for his team to capture victory. He shot just 7 of 18 from the field.

GOOD MOVE: Give Spoelstra credit for keeping Bosh on the bench. He provided a spark when he entered midway through the first quarter. Bosh played starter minutes, but was the new wrinkle they needed.

BAD MOVE: The Celtics' Achilles all season long has been their poor bench play. The starting lineup received almost no help from the reserves. If this team does indeed stay intact, it is going to need to surround the core with a more talented supporting cast.

NOTABLE: This was third triple-double of this year's postseason for Rondo. The game had 20 lead changes, including seven in the fourth quarter.

UP NEXT: Miami plays Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder Tuesday.
