|Miami Heat Advance To The NBA Finals|
The Miami Heat have advanced to their second consecutive NBA Finals appearance since the Big Three came together and will now face a red-hot Oklahoma City Thunder squad beginning Tuesday night. The Heat overran a tired Boston side in Game 7 earlier today winning, 101-88. Now, finally the world gets the match-up its been clamoring for since the beginning of the season, with the world's two best players set to square off for what may be the first of many meetings on basketball's biggest stage.
Miami's big three (James, Wade and Bosh) came up big, but it was crucial baskets from power forward Bosh that helped the Heat get over the line. After the game James acknowledged the contribution of Bosh.
"He was big time -- every shot, every defensive play, every rebound -- we missed him," James said of Bosh. "We're just happy to have him back at the right time. If it wasn't for him and the rest of the guys that stepped up, we don't win this game."
Said Spoelstra: "Our most important player."
The Heat fly out to Oklahoma City on Sunday to prepare for Tuesday night's opening game.
