Heat Advance to Eastern Conference Finals

Heat Advance to Eastern Conference Finals

Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images(MIAMI) –  Don’t look now, but the Miami Heat are back in the Eastern Conference finals for the fourth year in a row.
LeBron James and Dwayne Wade combined to score 57 points as the Heat rallied to defeat the Brooklyn Nets 96-94 on Wednesday night, winning their second-round matchup in five games.
“When we met the first day for prep, we said the No. 1 key, overwhelmingly the No. 1 key in this series, was great mental stability,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after the two-time defending champions won their 10th straight playoff series.
The Nets led by eight with under five minutes remaining and were looking to take the series back to Brooklyn for Game 6. The Heat went on a 12-0 run to take the lead for good, while the Nets missed nine straight shots. Ray Allen hit a huge three-pointer to give Miami a 93-91 lead with 32 seconds remaining.
“Give the Heat credit,” Nets coach Jason Kidd said. “They were attacking there in the fourth quarter. We were attacking. Both teams were attacking. They made plays, they made shots and we didn’t.”
Joe Johnson led the Nets with 34 points, while Paul Pierce chipped in 19.
Miami will face either the Indiana Pacers or the Washington Wizards in the Eastern Conference finals.

LeBron James Scores 49 to Lead Heat Past Nets

Elsa/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — LeBron James tied his playoff career-high with 49 points to lead the Miami Heat to a 102-96 victory over the Brooklyn Nets Monday, in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinal.
The Heat now lead the series 3-1.
James finished the game 16-of-24 from the field.
“My only thing with him, he was going so well in the third quarter we didn’t want him to die out in the fourth,” Heat guard Dwyane Wade said of his teammate, James.  “But that guy has an engine that’s second to none so he just continued it going.”
Wade had 15 points in the win.
The Nets tied the game at 94 with 2:30 to play when Kevin Garnett hit two free throws. The game stayed tied until Chris Bosh hit a 3-pointer with 57 seconds remaining to give the Heat the lead for good.
“This is very difficult to swallow,” Nets center Garnett said of the loss. “Hard to take, but it’s what it is. Coulda, shoulda, woulda doesn’t help us at this point.”
Now the Nets are one game away from being ousted from the playoffs. Game 5 is Wednesday in Miami. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. Eastern.
