Celtics Vs. Heat Score: Miami Opens Up Double-Digit Lead Before Final Quarter

Continuing their strong play from the second quarter, the Miami Heat lead the Boston Celtics, 74-59, at the end of the third quarter. The 15-point lead is the largest one of the game.

The Celtics are still having trouble around the boards, as the Heat hold a 33-19 advantage in rebounds after three quarters. Joel Anthony still leads the Heat with eight, but Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade each have pulled down six so far. LeBron James leads the Heat with 17 points, while Wade and Bosh have added 12 points and 11 points, respectively.

The Celtics' Kevin Garnett still leads the team in scoring, now at 19 points, but Paul Pierce is right behind him with 16. Rajon Rondo added just four points in the quarter and has only dished the ball out for two assists. Boston will need to turn things up if they want to pick up their fourth win over Miami this season.
