Heat Gains Finals as Stars Rally LateMiami Heat v Chicago Bulls

There are perhaps a thousand ways to seize a conference title, but none more emphatic, more authoritative or more vehement than the method LeBron James chose Thursday night to send tMiami Heat v Chicago Bullshe Miami Heat to the N.B.A. finals.

Derrick Rose elevated for a series-saving shot at the arc. James leaped with him, then swatted the ball and the Chicago Bulls into oblivion. The buzzer sounded on an 83-80 Miami victory, and James and his teammates began a subdued celebration, having claimed the Eastern Conference crown in five games.

“There’s no sense of relief right now,” James said. “We still got work to do.”

The Heat will battle the Dallas Mavericks in the finals, in a rematch of the 2006 series, which Miami won. The series begins Tuesday in Miami.

For a team that for months seemed incapable of closing games, the Heat now stands as a collection of experts. James punished the Bulls in one fourth quarter after another for the final four games of the series, all of them Heat victories. In the finale, James and Dwyane Wade alternated big shots and suffocating stops as they crushed the Bulls’ spirit and ruthlessly erased a 12-point deficit in the final 3 minutes 2 seconds.

For the fourth straight game, the young Bulls were incapable of matching the Heat’s steadiness down the stretch, or its awesome star power. Continue reading

Heat Overcomes the Celtics

The arena corridors are plastered with memories of the only championship that was ever celebrated here. Images of the Larry O’Brien Trophy cling to doors and hallways like stale wallpaper. It can be touched, but not grasped. Larry O’Brien Trophy

Before the playoffs began last month, Miami Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra brought out the real 2006 trophy to stir his team’s emotions. Two weeks ago, Pat Riley, the team president and collector of championship rings, offered a different brand of inspiration, telling Spoelstra stories about Jerry West’s legendary struggles against the Boston Celtics, the Heat’s next foe.

Spoelstra said he felt the agony as if it were his own. LeBron James had felt that agony personally, too many times. Dwyane Wade, too. It was why they all were here, together: To win a title. To beat the Celtics. To vanquish old ghosts.

Catharsis came at last Wednesday night for all of them, with a 97-87 victory that knocked the Celtics out of the playoffs and catapulted the Heat to the Eastern Conference finals.

The mission that James, Wade and Chris Bosh began last July is nearing its denouement.

They closed out Boston, the defending Eastern Conference champion, with an awesome display of power, finishing with a 16-0 run over the final 4 minutes 28 seconds. When it was over, Wade and James embraced on the court, as thousands of white towels whirled above them. Then James kneeled on the court.

“Everything went through my mind at that point,” James said, “including finally getting over this hump against this team. Everything I went through this summer, with the decision and deciding to come down here and be a part of this team.”

This was a meaningful celebration, nothing like the audacious party they threw for themselves last summer after joining forces. They need eight more victories to win a title. But they have overthrown the team that lorded over them for so long.

The Celtics, James and Wade have said often, provided the blueprint by uniting Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen. Continue reading

LeBron James’s Decision Is Looking Better

LeBron James When LeBron James, 6 feet 8 inches and 250 pounds of pure power, changes directions at full speed, skips and elevates for a dunk, the observer sees only charisma and grace, not arrogance or duplicity. When James soars and snags Dwyane Wade’s 24-foot bullet pass and throws it down in one motion, we see only artistry, not treachery.

In the moment, in a single playoff snapshot, James is at long last an entertainer again — a fabulously skilled basketball savant — rather than a symbol of modern moral decline, if he really ever was.

It may be years before the public forgets the self-indulgent spectacle of James’s 2010 free-agent tour or the cold-hearted audacity of “The Decision.” Cleveland may never forgive his betrayal.

But as the playoffs unfold, and the Miami Heat pushes ever closer to the N.B.A. finals, James is building a bold case that his decision (with a lower-case “d”) was the correct one.

Miami has a 2-0 lead over Boston, James’s personal playoff nemesis. When he was a solitary star in Cleveland, the Celtics wrecked his title hopes twice in three years. Now James is doing the wrecking, averaging 28.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists in the series while shooting 50 percent from the field. Continue reading
