Its was the MVP that did the damage on Monday night against the Celtics. LeBron James had 32 points and 13 rebounds while his partner in crime Dwayne Wade came in with 22 points and 7 assists. Boston never got a look in as the Heat led from the start.
Things didnt start well for Celtic who scored only 11 points in the first quarter but they managed to tie the game back to 46 each at half time which took some doing. The Heat though turned on the pressure once more in the third and led by double digits going into the fourth and took the game comfortably
Heat coach Erik SPoelstra: “At times, it was a strange game. Some good runs, both teams. I think we felt we could have played better. I’m sure they felt the same thing but we were able to find a way to grind it and you have to do this against this team.
Celtics coach Doc Rivers: “In the third quarter, the game just got away from us. I thought we rushed. I thought our offense was rushed. I thought never got into our rhythm as far as getting on one side of the floor to the other, second and third options.”
