Heat Lose Heartbreaker At Home 94-90, Celtics Take 3-2 Series Lead

View Comments

MIAMI (AP) — Kevin Garnett finished with 26 points and 11 rebounds, Paul Pierce hit a 3-pointer over LeBron James with just under a minute left and the Boston Celtics moved one win away from an Eastern Conference title by beating the Miami Heat 94-90 on Tuesday night.

Pierce scored 19 points for the Celtics, who have won three straight games for a 3-2 series lead.

James finished with 30 points and 13 rebounds for Miami, though he went 8 minutes without scoring in the final quarter. Dwyane Wade scored 27 for the Heat, who got no more than nine from anyone else.

Game 6 is Thursday night in Boston, where the Celtics will try to clinch a trip to either Oklahoma City or San Antonio for Game 1 of the NBA finals.
