The Miami Heat led the Boston Celtics, 24-16, after the first quarter of Game 5 of the 2012 NBA Eastern Conference Finals on Tuesday. The Celtics shot just 28.6 percent from the field for the quarter. Meanwhile, the Heat looked energetic, making several big plays early including:
A Dwyane Wade alley-oop slam ...
... and some quality play (five points in four minutes) from Chris Bosh.
Pierce led the Celtics with six points in the quarter, but got there on 2-for-6 shooting. Rajon Rondo has zero points on 0-for-5 shooting, and just one assist to two turnovers. Thankfully, Ray Allen continues to look rejuvenated. He hit another 3-pointer in the first quarter, and racked up four (!) rebounds to lead the team.
