LeBron James: Landed 32 points for the Heat
LeBron James led the way with 32 points as the Miami Heat opened up the Eastern Conference final against the Boston Celtics with a 93-79 win.
A topsy-turvy encounter in Florida saw the Heat race into a 10-point lead after the first quarter before the Celtics hit back to level by half-time.
The Heat, though, built up another substantial lead after the interval and this time were able to fend off the Boston fightback.
James added 13 rebounds to his haul, while Dwayne Wade scored 22 points. Kevin Garnett led the Boston offence with 23 points and 10 rebounds.
