After the debacle that was Game One of the Eastern Conference Finals there were a lot of fans like myself that were hoping that the rest of the series would not be an absolute mess as well. If Game Two Wednesday night is any indication it will not be.
In the first half it looked liked everything was working for Boston as they got out to a seven point lead, 53-46. If the Heat/Pacers series showed us anything it is that LeBron James and company are never out and can take over a game at any given moment. Miami could do no wrong in the third (while the Celtics could not do much right), and by time the final period started the Heat had a solid six-point lead, 81-75.
Ray Allen hit a three with 34 seconds to tie the game at 99-99. LeBron failed to hit the winning shot as time ran out. In OT Dwyane Wade proved that LeBron is not the only show in South Beach as he scored eight of his 23 points en route to a 115-111 win for the Heat.
Rajon Rondo led the way for Boston scoring 44 points to go with 10 assists and 8 rebounds and never coming out of the game. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett chimed in 21 and 18 respectively while Ray Allen had just 13. As usual, LeBron and his considerable talents led the way for the Heat. James scored 34 points to go with 10 rebounds and 7 assists for the night.
(D-Wade deserves a little extra love for making this shot.)
