VIDEO: LeBron James Scores Final 10 Points To Eliminate Celtics

The Boston Celtics at one point led the Miami Heat by 10 points in Wednesday night's Game 5. But that quickly disappeared and with just 2:17 left in the fourth quarter, the game was tied, 87-87. With their season on the line and in need of a win to stay alive for one more night, the Celtics needed someone to takeover the game. And someone did -- unfortunately for them, it was LeBron James

James -- who has been labeled as a player who's "not clutch" and can't get it done when then game is on the line -- completely dominated the final few minutes of Game 5, leading the Heat on a 16-0 run to end the game, a streak during which LeBron scored the final 10 points.

Unfortunately, there is video of it all:

The Celtics were (very) injured -- Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, Shaquille O'Neal, Jermaine O'Neal, etc. -- and maybe that's a reason they lost in five games. Another reason: LeBron James is really, really good at basketball.
