Facing elimination Friday, the Miami Heat turned it on against a Boston Celtics team that were defenseless to a LeBron onslaught that proved why he was the league MVP. James was in a league of his own, playing all but the final 3 minutes of the game, racking up figures of 45 points, 15 rebounds and 5 assists. Dwyane Wade was the only other Heat player to record double figures, scoring 17 points to go along with his 8 rebounds and 4 assists. In a do or die game for Miami, the Heat, behind the leadership of LeBron, were in control from the opening tipoff. Even when the game was a forgone conclusion midway through the fourth, Miami kept going hard at the basket, extending their lead to as many as 25 points. A completely different Boston side turned up in Game 6 to the one that did just 2 days prior in Miami. The Celtics struggled from behind the line, going 1-14 (7%) and 43% from the field, while being outrebounded 34-44. Making the task near impossible, Rajon Rondo was the only Celtics who managed to score more then 12 points, putting up 21 points, 10 assists and 4 rebounds off 8-14 shooting.
Game 6 MVP: LeBron JamesLeBron’s performance Friday showed what a freak of an athlete and human being he really is. Shooting at 73%, James was locked in right from the outset, knocking down baskets from all over the court. Playing the first 45 minutes without sitting, he was able to chalk up 45 points, 15 rebounds and 5 assists, while going 2-4 from behind the arch. Despite having defenders constantly in his face, James was able to work his way out of just about any situation, ultimately resulting in Miami getting a critical Game 6 win away from home.
