LeBron James Catches Fire in the Miami Heats 98-79 Victory Over the Boston Celtics
To further highlight the absolute dominance by LeBron James, 30 of his points came in the first half as the Heat jumped out to an insurmountable lead. Before James was pulled midway through the fourth quarter, he had more than half of the Heats points. James’ performance made up for an off night by Dwyane Wade, where he went 6 of 17 shooting on the night.
The Celtics, who have relied on the perimeter shot for most of the season, were just 1-14 from behind the arc, Granted the Heats defense played outstanding, the Celtics had an off night. Rajon Rondo had a team high of 21 points, while Paul Pierce was held to 4-18 shooting, and just 9 points.
If the Heat play like they did in game 6, a championship appearance is inevitable, if they let up, its anyone’s game.
