With James sitting out, Celtics dump Heat
BOSTON -- With twice as many losses as wins, the Boston Celtics are headed for the NBA draft lottery. However, when their long and difficult rebuilding season ends, they can at least look back on winning the season series against the reigning NBA champions.
The Celtics, taking advantage of LeBron James' absence, rode guards Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley to a 101-96 victory over Heat on Wednesday night, capturing the season series between the teams, 2-1.
