For most of the first half, the Heat struggled to get out in transition and beat the Celtics’ excellent halfcourt defense to the punch. Much of that has been because the Celtics have refused to turn the ball over.
But Boston committed two late turnovers in the second quarter. One them, a live ball steal by LeBron, led to a gorgeous connection between James and Dwyane Wade.
After the play, LeBron hung on the rim. It appeared Rajon Rondo was camped out under him; Rondo appeared to complain that LeBron was trying to kick him in the head, while LeBron seemed to complain that Rondo wouldn’t let him release. Drama!
