The Miami Heat tightened up their defensive intensity in the second half, holding Boston to just 33 points in posting a 93-79 victory to open the Eastern Conference finals.

LeBron James led the way for Miami with 32 points and 13 rebounds. Dwayne Wade scored 10 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter.

Shane Battier, playing in the conference finals for the first time, scored 10 points and had 10 rebounds for the Heat, who were tied with Boston at halftime before breaking it open late.

Kevin Garnett scored 23 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for Boston. The Celtics got 16 points, nine rebounds and seven assists from Rajon Rondo but it wasn't enough. As Celtics coach Doc Rivers said afterward, "In the third quarter, the game just got away from us."
