King James Brilliant in Series Against Celtics, Heat Back in NBA Finals

in the end, the Miami Heat’s dynamic duo proved to be too much for an experienced group of Boston Celtics. try as they might and eventually making it a series few predicted would even go the limit, the Celtics succumbed to the Heat on Saturday night losing game seven 101-88. At the beginning of the series, hardly anyone gave the Celtics a chance against Miami.

the storyline in the final game of this series was much the same as throughout the seven contests. King James leads the way with thirty plus points and is amply assisted by Dwyane Wade who puts in twenty something of his own. the third member of Miami’s superstar trio, Chris Bosh returned to action seeing limited minutes in the last three affairs after suffering an abdominal strain in the semifinals versus the Indiana Pacers. his contribution should not be discounted however, as just his presence on the floor changed how Boston played defense.

in the series clincher, LeBron, Dwyane and Chris were responsible for the last 30 points scored by the Heat. Bosh had a total of 19 points and grabbed 8 boards. he hit three from beyond the arc. James performed his usual act netting 31 points with 12 rebounds and Wade 23 with 6 boards and pitched off another 6 assists. For the series James had a total of 235 points averaging out to 33.5 per contest. he averaged a double, double with 77 rebounds, good for 11 per game.

Rajon Rondo did his part for Boston averaging 21 points and dishing off 11 assists throughout, but Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett could not provide the consistent effort necessary to overcome Miami. After Miami took the first two games in South Beach by scores of 93-79 and 115-111 in overtime, Boston was pretty much written off by most, with the possibility of a sweep not at all out of the question. But the brooms were put away after the Celtics came back on their home floor with an impressive 101-91 victory followed by another triumph of 93-91 in overtime. When Boston defeated Miami on the Heats own court in game 5, 94-90, all of a sudden it looked like the tide had turned.

However give the Heat and particularly James credit as he all but willed his team to the final two wins they needed to advance. he scored 45 in the 98-79 game six win in Beantown and the rest is now history. the third time was the charm for James in game seven’s, after failing in his previous two.
