Celtics defeat Heat in OT, knot series at 2-2
Rajon Rondo had 15 points and 15 assists, and scored the final three points of the game, as the Boston Celtics beat the Miami Heat 93-91 in overtime on Sunday night that evened the Eastern Conference finals at two games apiece.
Kevin Garnett added 17 points and 14 rebounds for the Celtics, while Paul Pierce scored 23 points before fouling out. Ray Allen finished with 16 points.
LeBron James, who fouled out in the extra period finished with 29 points, Dwyane Wade scored 20 points.
Mickael Pietrus drew James' sixth foul and grabbed two huge offensive rebounds that extended consecutive possessions for the Celtics.
Rondo's layup gave the Celtics a 92-91 lead with 2:34 left, and neither team scored again until he made a free throw with 21 seconds to play. Wade, already finding it tough to locate any room with Chris Bosh out and then having to do it James also on the sideline, saw his potential winning attempt bounce off the rim as time expired.
Game 5 is on Tuesday in Miami.
