The Celtics  led by as many as seven points in the quarter, but every time they began to put some distance between them and Miami, the Heat came right back. With the score tied at 74-74, this game looks like it will go right down to the wire.
The action came midway through the quarter after Wade got knocked the floor on a long rebound. The Heat players felt that Kendrick Perkins  had fouled Wade and Jermaine O’Neal  and Rafer Alston  got called for technicals.
Turnovers have once again been a problem for the Celtics. They have 14 after three quarters.
