Great shooting was the storyline through the first two quarters, 60% field goal percentage for Boston, giving us a one point lead. Jordan Crawford picked up where he left off at the LBJ Skills Academy versus LeBron by shooting 4-4 and drilling a deep three right in #6’s eye. LeBron was doing ‘LeBron things’ in the first half, dropping 13 points.
Both teams swapped buckets throughout the third and fourth quarters, until it was a two point Heat lead with 19.1 left on the clock. Kelly Olynyk couldn’t bank it home for the tie, but thankfully missed free throws and a bonehead violation by Wade gave the C’s one last shot with 6/10’s of a second on the clock. Jeff Green made an amazing, clutch corner three for the win. Boston’s leading scorers was Iron Man Jeff Green with 24, and Avery Bradley pulled a Paul Pierce down the stretch taking and making huge buckets ultimately finishing with 17. LeBron lead the Heat with 25 points, and Chris Bosh contributed nicely with 20 points 7 rebounds.
Boston look to extend their winning streak Monday night as they return to the parquet to battle the Magic on Veterans Day at 7:30 PM.
