In a clash between bitter rivals, the Miami Heat hosted the Boston Celtics in a 2012 Eastern Conference Finals rematch. After yet another awe-inspiring battle between LeBron James and Jeff Green, the Heat emerged victorious by a score of 109-101.

So how did it all transpire?

LeBron was brilliant as always, filling up the stat sheet with 20 points, nine assists and six rebounds on 8-of-10 shooting from the field. Rashard Lewis contributed a surprising 19 points and both Chris Bosh and Ray Allen tallied 17.

With that being said, the individual star of the evening was Green.

Green continued his recent string of All-Star-caliber success, scoring 25 points and taking it to LeBron in relentless fashion. With Jordan Crawford dropping 20, the Celtics nearly pulled off this shorthanded upset without Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.
