LeBron powers Heat to OT win against Celtics


Boston — LeBron James scored 35 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to lead Miami to a 98-90 overtime victory over the Boston Celtics yesterday and give the Heat a 3-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

Dwyane Wade scored 28 with nine rebounds and Chris Bosh had 20 points and 12 rebounds for Miami, which could eliminate the defending conference champions and advance to the East finals with a victory in Game 5 in Miami on Wednesday night.

James, Wade and Bosh scored 83 of Miami’s 98 points and had 35 of its 45 rebounds.

Paul Pierce scored 27, Ray Allen had 17 and Kevin Garnett had seven points and 10 rebounds for Boston.

James made up for a turnover at the end of regulation with a fallaway jumper to start overtime and give Miami the lead for good. The Celtics scored just four points in overtime, shooting 1 for 6 and making four of their 18 turnovers.

Rajon Rondo, who dislocated his left elbow Saturday night in Game 3, played 39 minutes with a padded sleeve covering what appeared to be a brace on his left arm, scoring 10 with five assists.

Thunder 133,
Grizzlies 123, 3OT

At Memphis, Tennessee, Kevin Durant scored six of his 35 points in the third overtime as Oklahoma City survived a thriller to hold off Memphis in a game that ended yesterday morning.

With the victory, the Thunder grabbed back home-court advantage and tied this Western Conference semifinal at two games apiece.

Game 5 is tonight back in Oklahoma City. The winner of the series will play the Dallas Mavericks in the conference finals.

The finish couldn’t have been more exciting in the second straight overtime game in this series. The sellout crowd stood through each overtime, though fans started trickling toward the exits as the clock ticked past midnight locally.
Russell Westbrook led the Thunder with 40 points. James Harden added 19, and Daequan Cook had 10. /ap
