Video: LeBron James hits a massive dagger three to end the Celtics’ hopes and dreams

Jun 10, 2012, 10:06 AM EDT

Miami Heat's James reacts after a foul is called on Boston Celtics'  Pierce  in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs in Miami, Florida Reuters

The Bosh threes were what won the day. The Wade and-one and jumpers were what ran them out. But this LeBron James dagger pull-up three with 5:46 to go? That was when the Celtics knew. It was not their day. Their day is over. It is the Heat’s day, the Heat’s world, the Heat’s time, in the East, for now, and again.

And you can’t be upset if you’re Boston. What are you going to do? That’s an impossible shot. It’s not a good shot. It’s not quality offense. It’s the same kind of shot Paul Pierce hit in Game 5 to put the game to bed for Boston, only so much more dramatic. The Celtics would not get closer than five after that shot.

Game over.

      How SWEET this is. Knowing how upset and desperate all of you trolls must be right now. All you are doing is making this ride even MORE enjoyable. Win or lose

        I hope tou’re still on here after you lose to OKC. Unless you’re one of the many bandwagon Heat fans.

    Heat in 6…. kD isn’t ready and LBJ is in another level right now….. He just OWNED that old tired classless (except for Pierce) Celts team….. I’m not a fan of either team, bit the writing is on the wall…. Plus it gets exhausting listening to all if the irrational haters…. We’re watching the greatest player since Jordan and no one wants to appreciate it….

    I have a question 1972wasalongtimeago are you that gay looking heat fan with curly blond hair that wears white gloves in the 7th row at the heat game?

      I have a question jtchernak, why are you so sad and bitter? Mommy take you off teet too early in life?

    • 1972wasalongtimeago - Jun 10, 2012 at 11:09 AM

      Haven’t had curly blond hair for about 24 years. 1988 was a long time ago too.

    That anger and jealousy is beautiful. Thank you for making me even prouder to be a Heat fan and an American. Keep it up loser.

    I still wish hed trust his jumper more like he did in game 6.

    We haven’t learned yet, I guess! In these 2012 Playoffs, the obvious choice has been the wrong one. I don’t have a clue on who’ll win these finals. It’s easy to say OKC, but, who knows. As an NBA fan, I’m gonna sit back and enjoy. I suggest everyone do the same. It’s going to be a war!

    Did u see all the FT’s LeBron missed? It was Wade’s And 1 that iced the game: Skip Bayless.

    It really is funny how bad people want the Miami Heat not to win a Championship. Some of yall are so pathetic. Switching from team to team every time Miami goes to the next round. Just to celebrate every time the Heat lose. The truth is the Miami Heat are the most exciting team in the NBA. Hands down nothing else to it. I’m a Heat fan that watches almost every game from Game 1 of the regular season. Not so that I can brag about being a true fan. Every game is something special with these guys. You would think you would get tired of fastbreaks, alley oops, and saying ooooohhhh s#%$!. NOPE NEVER. These new breed haters secretly watch EVERY Heat game than act like they weren’t impressed. Be serious please. This NBA Finals will be nothing less than incredible. Go Heat!

    Did you get yourself cleaned up, Curt? Or did it all go down ok?

  11. supershpa - Jun 10, 2012 at 10:06 PM

    I agree with turnmymicup the Miami heat are the best and most electrifying team in the NBA and as another true game to game 66, you really don’t ever get tired of saying ohhhhhhhh s$@& did he really just do that!
