Miami Heat beats the Boston Celtic’s in their first game today leading their Best of Seven Eastern Conference Finals 1-0. Heat’s main man Lebron James led their team’s win with his 32 points and 13 rebounds. Kevin Garnett’s 24 points may be a big one but not enough to counter the offense of Heat.
It was close first half for the Celtics, but Miami pull off in the 3rd and 4th quarter making it hard for them to comeback. Miami Head Coach Erik Spoelstra said “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.”
Team play is the great factor for Miami’s win with Dwayne Wade and Shane Battier complimenting Lebron James. Wade contributed 22 points while Battier had 10, to cap off a win at 93-79.
Game 2 is scheduled on Wednesday (Thursday morning in Manila) at the Miami’s American Airlines Arena.
