Former Kansas guard Mario Chalmers and the Miami Heat, came back with a thundering victory on Thursday night over Boston, forcing a game seven on Saturday. Lebron James scored 45 points in the win for the Heat.
Boston on Tuesday night came through with a hugely surprising win in Miami, forcing last night’s possible series clincher. Miami was in control throughout the game, easily defeating Boston. Former Kansas guard Paul Pierce scored just nine points in the loss. Rajon Rondo led the Celtics with 21 points. Chalmers played 35 minutes, scoring only nine points, making two assists and two steals. Fellow Heat guard Dwayne Wade scored 17 points, making James’s total even more astronomical. He and Wade were the only Heat players once again to reach double-digits scoring.
Game seven is scheduled for tomorrow night in Miami. The Heat are favorites to win as Boston blew their opportunity. Oklahoma City is awaiting whomever comes out of this battle for a meeting in the NBA finals. The Thunder dispatched off San Antonio on Wednesday night. It appears game one of the NBA finals will come on Tuesday night as the Thunder host either Miami or Boston. Game two is on Thursday. So will we have a James vs Kevin Durant match-up in the NBA finals? Tomorrow night, we will find out.
