Boston Celtics Beat Miami Heat in Double Overtime Thriller, 100-98
In a game that went into not one, but two overtimes, the Celtics were able to survive the Miami Heat 100-98.
The Celtics got some crushing news earlier today, learning that point guard Rajon Rondo will be out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL. Despite that news, and Rondo's presence being noticeably missed, the Celtics able to come out of their funk, and win on Sunday.
Without Rondo on the floor, many stepped up in his wake. Paul Pierce put up a triple double with 17 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists. Kevin Garnett led the Celtics with 24 points. Jason Terry added 13 points off the bench. Avery Bradley, Leandro Barbosa and Jeff Green stepped up as well, all equally involved in the win.
Miami was led by LeBron James with 34 points and 16 rebounds.
