Heat Playoffs: Heat Take Down Celtics in Overtime
They had to overcome overtime, bad officiating, the national media's sudden infatuation with a one-armed man, "retarded-gate," Chris Bosh's supposed "softness," LeBron James' inability to close out games, a losing streak in Boston that's lasted since 2007, and a building full of obnoxious fans, but the Heat took down the Celtics 98-90 in extra frames as they head back to Miami with a 3-1 series lead.
Before the start of the game, all the talk was about Rajon Rondo and his amazing feats of being able to play through pain. The national media was dying to make him the symbol of this series with his heroics of being able to play basketball with an injured elbow. And without the aid of any painkillers, mind you. Dwyane Wade, James and Bosh also had to contend with coming off their worst performance as Miami's Big Three when they combined for 44 points in Game 3.
