Last night, the Miami Heat beat the Boston Celtics 101-88 and won third Eastern Conference title in a row. Especially LeBron James was happy to finally win a Game 7 on his third try, after loosing his two last Game 7 appearances with Cleveland in 2006 and 2008. The Heat will certainly remember the loss against the Dallas Mavericks last year, but last night, they were the ones dancing on the court to celebrate their victory. In the NBA finals, Miami will face Oklahoma City Thunder beginning on Tuesday.
Again, the Heat won thanks to the Big Three, LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh who scored every point in the last quarter, outscoring Boston 28-15. In total, James scored 31 points with 12 rebounds, Wade had 23 points and Chris Bosh 19. In addition to that, Shane Battier had a good game with 12 points for Miami.
Rajon Rondo was statistically the best player of the Boston Celtics and finished with 23 points, 10 rebounds and 14 assists. But a good performance of on player is not enough against the Miami Heat. Rajon Rondo said that the Heat played great as a team and exactly that was what the Celtics were missing this game – performing as a team – and so they fell short.
After the game, LeBron James said: “Everybody was in tune today and we look forward to the next challenge”. Maybe they will finally be able to win the championship this year.
