Heat Vs. Celtics, NBA 2012 Playoffs: Boston Up 61-47 At The Half

With Rajon Rondo orchestrating the offense, the Boston Celtics have been absolutely on fire in the first half of Game 4, leading the Miami Heat 61-47.

Everyone has gotten in on the fun for Boston, who have shot 49% from the field and 44% from long range. While Keyon Dooling's two three are the definition of found money, Ray Allen's 3-5 performance from deep has to be the most encouraging sign for Boston.

Rondo has been in the middle of it, handing out 10 assists to only 1 turnover in the game's first 24 minutes.

The only Miami player whose been able to get anything going offensively is LeBron James, who has scored 19 points on 9-13 shooting.

Dwyane Wade, in particular, has really struggled. In the first half, the Heat star has 8 points on 2-11 shooting.

But despite Wade's struggles, Miami has still shot 47.5% from the floor. To make it a game in the second half, they'll need to figure out how to stop the Celtics.
