Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat GAME 4 HIGHLIGHTS | 2012 NBA Playoffs | 6.03.2012

After a convincing victory the Boston Celtics the Miami Heat pace towards the NBA finals. They defeated Boston Celtics in 7 Games to advance to their second straight NBA Finals! The entire team is extremely excited to be playing in yet another final. Fans are looking forward to the encounter in the NBA Finals and the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday at 9 p.m.

Most of the credit was yesterday’s victory is being given to the trio of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. Where the team isn’t certain on whether these three assets would stick together to Miami Heat for more games but it is certainly hoping for them to perform as they did yesterday in order for them to ace the NBA finals as well.

Even though the encounter with Boston Celtics was an elimination game, Miami Heat remained calm and consistent. The pressure and stress was seen in the Celtics squad and ultimately they were defeated in the fourth quarter of a classic thriller. Miami won the first two and final two games of this series as Boston won three in the middle.

LeBron James’s stupendous performance of slamming home dunks and hitting critical late field goals, one well beyond the three-point arc, led Miami with 32 points and 12 rebounds. He was extremely happy about the victory and satisfied with his contribution. According to Washington Post Sports, He said, “It’s been a journey” “It’s been a long ride. . . . We didn’t shortcut anything this year. We said to each other, ‘It’s time. It’s time.’ ”

Where the Celtics did try and resist Miami Heat, they couldn’t cope up with the immense competition and consistency their players had. It was indeed a sad and nostalgic end for them. Sad because, they are out of the tournament and nostalgic because their famous trio of NBA’s first big three, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce will not get another chance to play for the team in NBA finals.

Celtics Coach Doc Rivers said, “We had nothing left, that’s how it felt as a coach,”. “Everything was front of the rim. We started throwing balls away. They started beating us off the dribble. . . . [It’s] frustrating as a coach. It felt like, ‘Let’s get away from them, let’s get away from them. We can’t let them hang around.’ And we did.”
