Game 4 and 5 were really depressing for Miami Heat. The pressure was put into LeBron James’ shoulders. Why is that, honestly? As far as I can remember, basketball is not a one-man’s play (unless Heat haters say otherwise). Seems that the people can’t get over “The Decision” James made couple of years ago. I’m wondering – if fortunate enough, Miami Heat wins the series, are they still going to doubt James’ competence as a basketball player?
LeBron James scored 45 points to lead the Miami Heat to victory over the Boston Celtics, 98-79, on Thursday night, June 7, 2012, as published at NBA.com. The Game 6 win by the Heat in the TD Garden, Boston, MA, leveled the 2012 NBA Eastern Conference Finals best-of-seven series at three games apiece.
James scored 30 of his team’s 55 first half points. He was finally taken out of the game after hitting 19 of 26 from the field and grabbing 15 rebounds.
Dwyane Wade is the only other Heat player to score in double-figures with 17 points. Chris Bosh was back on the game. It was really helpful that he can do both offensive and defensive rebound.
Check out the Miami VS Celtics Game 6 Highlights:
Rajon Rondo scored 21 points and dished off 10 assists for Boston. Kevin Garnett and Brandon Bass added 12 points each for the Celtics. Paul Pierce was 4-of-18 from the field and finished the game with only nine points.
The deciding Game 7 is scheduled at the American Airlines Arena, Miami, FL on Saturday, June 9. The winner of Game 7 will move on to the 2012 NBA Finals versus the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Miami Heat FTW!
