The Celtics and Heat head to Boston with Miami holding a 2-0 lead in the NBA's Eastern Conference finals following last night's 115-111 overtime victory in Game 2.

LeBron James had 34 points and 10 rebounds to lead the way. Dwyane Wade finished with 23 points and Mario Chalmers chipped in with 22 points to help Miami protect home-court advantage in the best-of-seven matchup.

Boston's Rajon Rondo finished with a playoff career-high 44 points while dishing out 10 assists and grabbing eight rebounds.

Paul Pierce had 21 points and Ray Allen added 13, including a game-tying three-pointer with 34.3 seconds left in regulation. Kevin Garnett chipped in 18 points and eight rebounds but missed 12 of his 18 shots.

They'll play Game 3 on Friday night in Beantown.
