NBA Morning Recap: Celtics, Lakers Beat Finalists From Last Year

8400301Sunday brought us some excitement. Seven games in the National Basketball Association! Let’s check out what happened then, shall we?

Boston Celtics 100, Miami Heat 98 (2OT)

LeBron James made a three-pointer to send the game to overtime. A sluggish first overtime rendered both teams scoreless in the last minute of the extra period. In the second overtime, Paul Pierce dropped the familiar right elbow jumper for the lead and had a triple-double on the night. The Heat still had a chance to tie or win but Shane Battier’s desperate three-pointer was way off. The Celtics snapped their six-game losing streak but were rocked by the news of Rajon Rondo being lost for the rest of the season. Kevin Garnett led Boston with 24 points while LeBron James’ 34 points, 16 boards, and seven assists were not enough for Miami.
