Eastern Conference Semifinals - Celtics vs. Heat - Game 1
Wade, James and Jones Combine for 85 as the Heat Take Game 1
The Celtics fell behind early in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, and despite winning the third and fourth quarters, they couldn't get over the proverbial "hump" and fell to the Heat 99-90 Sunday afternoon in Miami. For every run the C's made, the Heat had an answer.
Ray Allen fueled the Celtics' late-game push and finished with a team-high 25 points. Paul Pierce followed with 19 points, but was ejected on his second technical foul with seven minutes remaining in the game.
