Heat Vs. Celtics Final Score, Overtime: LeBron James, Chris Bosh Set Up Elimination Game

The Miami Heat swiped a 98-90 overtime road win from the Boston Celtics in Game 4, sending their Eastern Conference series to 3-1. LeBron James finished with 35 points, 14 rebounds and various other stats, making enough clutch plays to offset a few foibles down the stretch, but it was Chris Bosh, believe it or not, who made some of the most key contributions towards the end.

The Heat jumped out to a four-point lead in the first half of the overtime period as Rajon Rondo sat due to growing elbow discomfort. Dwyane Wade then nailed what appeared to be a three-pointer with about two minutes left to make it 92-86, as it was indeed not a three.

Pierce drove and dished to Kevin Garnett, who drew a foul from James and hit both of his free throws to supplement a shaky scoring night. Rondo returned in time to force Mario Chalmers out of bounds, the 17th Miami turnover of the evening.

Garnett's struggles continued, with his next attempt resulting in another LeBron rebound. Wade drew a foul from Garnett on the other end of the floor, hitting one to make it 93-88. Pierce countered with a quick layup, but a clutch tip-in by Chris Bosh pretty much sealed it with 24 seconds left. Delonte West lost the ball, and Miami escaped with an overtime victory.

Game 5 is scheduled for Wednesday in Miami.
