Two of them even engaged in a mock sparring bout on the sidelines shortly before the game began. But when it did begin it was the Celtics who were the instructors and the Miami Heat the students. For all their advance publicity the Heat proved to be quite cool on the first day of April. For the Celtics didn't just beat the Heat, they demol- ished that team, owning a 29-point lead about halfway through the fourth quarter before mopping things up and walking off the court with a 19-point victory at 91-79. It was the 30 m victory of the season for the C's, who grabbed the Atlantic Division lead by beating Philadelphia two days earlier. That was still seven wins shy of Miami but so what. The Celtics are one of the hottest teams in the NBA right now. "Teams do a good job of scouting us and trying to take away from our strengths," said Heat star LeBron James following the rout. "We've got to do a bet- ter job of countering that." Although James was the Heat's leading scorer with 23 points he was, in effect, neutralized as he was held to zero assists for the con- test -- that's right zero -- while Paul Pierce dumped in his own 23 tallies for the Green. And give James this. At least he owned up to the Heat being shown up by the Celtics. "It was just a good old fashioned you know what. They beat us in all facets of the game, kept us under our averages and just com- pletely dominated us. So you've got to give them credit when credit is due." Indeed, the Green seems to be peaking at just about the right time, rising to the top as the division leaders. If they hold it they will have the home court advantage in at least the opening round of the playoffs that begin fol- lowing the conclusion of the regular season April 26. All five Boston starters were in double figures as the C's featured balanced scoring in what proved to be a one- sided affair -- especially in the second half. "They played exceptionally well- as good as they played against us in a long time," offered Dwayne Wade, an- other of the Miami stars. "Our mental focus wasn't there. It was just an old fash- ioned whipping." Wade was held to 15 points by Avery Bradley who scored 13 of his own. "Avery was good," said C's head coach Doe Rivers. "Avery was strong enough to hold his ground but we also had to go deep and help a lot because Wade is so crafty. Our team really clogged up the paint." Indeed, the entire Miami team was held to a season low in points with those 72 tallies and in field goal per- centage, the Heat connect- ing on just 34.8 percent of shots from the field. And then there was Rajon Rondo's triple-double of 16 points, 14 assists and 11 re- (Continued on Page 11) Buona P00qua deiSlgari Boston's loest private car lockers & museum food off'eras, car oflerias, and top shelfhqueur 292 Hanover Street Boston, Massachusetts 617-227-0295 I J-tapp!j easter J.U.
