The Heat Still Can't Beat the Celtics

Three times now they've tried and all three times they've failed. Going up against a banged up Celtics team in Boston, Miami fell 85-82 on Sunday dropping them a half game behind the Celtics for first place in the Eastern Conference. Rajon Rondo led the way with his third triple double of the season tying him for the league lead with Russell Westbrook and Lebron James. Rondo finished with 11 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, Kendrick Perkins added a season high 15 points, and Glen Davis chipped in 16 points off the bench as Boston overcame an abysmal shooting night from Paul Pierce while snapping a 2 game losing streak. Pierce finished 0/10 from the field and scored just 1 point for the Celtics, but it was enough to beat Lebron, Dwyane Wade and company. Chris Bosh led all scorers with 24 points and added 10 rebounds while Lebron James had 22 points 7 rebounds and 7 assists in a losing effort.
