(NEWS CENTER)-- The 'experts' say that the hardest game to win in any playoff series, is the game that sends one team home for the season... The Celtics found out first hand just how hard that is as they hosted Miami in game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals.
This one was never really close and Lebron James single handily made sure of that. The reigning MVP of the league was on another level from the opening tip of the game. James had an amazing 30 points in the first half and he kept it going in the 2nd half.
Lebron finished with an incredible stat line of 45 points, 15 rebounds, 5 assists on 19-of-26 shooting in 45 minutes of play. The Heat destroyed the Celtics by the final of 98-to-79. That evens the series up at three games apiece and a 7th and deciding game will be played in Miami on Saturday night.
