Kevin Garnett dominated down low with 24 points and 11 rebounds as the Boston Celtics cruised in the second half to a 101-91 win over the Miami Heat in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals. With the victory, Boston now trails Miami 2-1 in the best-of-seven-series. LeBron James had 34 points to help keep the Heat competitive throughout the contest, but the Celtics had their way with Miami for the majority of the final three quarters on both ends. Balanced scoring from Garnett, Rajon Rondo, (21 points, 10 assists) and Paul Pierce (23 points) keyed the Celtics' interior attack that allowed the hosts to build a 24-point lead in the third quarter and never look back. Dwyane Wade added 18 points for Miami, helping them close the deficit to eight points in the fourth quarter but it was too little too late for the visitors.
