The Boston Celtics defeated the Miami Heat 94-90 Tuesday in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The Celtics now lead 3-2 in the best-of-seven series. James and Wade are back at the brink of falling short from achieving their title promise again after losing the homecourt advantage. Forward Kevin Garnett led Boston with 26 points, including two free throws to seal it in the closing seconds. Forward Paul Pierce added 19 points, with none of them bigger than a 3-pointer to put the Celtics ahead with 52 seconds remaining. After piling up monster numbers through the first 40 minutes of this game, LeBron looked absolutely gassed down the stretch.
