Pushing away elimination right along with every defender who
tried to stop him, James shot 19 of 26 from the field and finished
four points shy of his playoff career-high while playing 45
minutes, not sitting down until the victory was long secured.
Dwyane Wade added 17 points for the Heat, who need a victory in
Game 7 on Saturday in Miami to return to the NBA finals.
Rajon Rondo had 21 points and 10 assists for Boston. Kevin
Garnett and Brandon Bass each scored 12 points, but Paul Pierce had
only nine on 4-of-18 shooting.
