Honestly, I don’t watch live NBA game. I would rather watch the replay than to make myself suffer to most likely a heart attack or nervous breakdown.
When I decided to watch the Game 7 of Miami Heat and Boston Celtics, I’m praying that Heat will win. My boyfriend and I even wore the Miami Heat jerseys to show that we’re ardent supporters of the team. But of course, I was kinda semi-optimistic – although I trust the Miami Heat team, lead by LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, that they will do their best to win it; it is still a damn game. One wins, the other losses.
While watching the first half of the game, I was literally on the edge of my seat. I don’t want to think about how Heat is letting this chance to be in the Finals to easily slip away; defense was loose, the passes were clumsy and they celebrated early whenever they got good shots. It was only during the fourth quarter that their nerves became awake and alive. Thanks to Bosh for saving the day. I must say, he showed how important he is to play in every game.
The Miami Heat closed out Game 7 of the 2012 NBA Eastern Conference Finals with a 101-88 victory over the Boston Celtics on Saturday night, June 9, 2012 at the American Airlines Arena, Miami, Fl. The Heat is heading to the NBA Finals for the second consecutive season versus the Oklahoma City Thunder.
LeBron James, with quite bad free-throws and jump shots, but made it to lead Miami with 31 points and 12 rebounds. Dwyane Wade recovered from another lackluster first half and scored 23 points while Chris Bosh added 19 points for the Heat. Bosh was 3 of 4 from the three point range.
In a post-game interview, James described the Heat victory as a “collective effort.”
Rajon Rondo was amazing too as guard for Boston who scored 22 points for Boston. Paul Pierce had 19 points and Brandon Bass (who made a dunk on Wade’s face) added 18 for the Celtics. Boston‘s other superstars, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett contributed 15 and 14 points respectively.
The 2012 NBA Finals between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat will begin on Tuesday, June 12 in Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City, OK.
