BOSTON -- Rajon Rondo had 15 points and 15 assists, and scored the final three points of the Boston Celtics' 93-91 overtime victory over the Miami Heat on Sunday night that evened the Eastern Conference finals at two games apiece.Getting a huge break when LeBron James fouled out for the first time since joining the Heat, the Celtics recovered after blowing an 18-point lead in regulation to move two games away from a third trip to the NBA finals in five years.Kevin Garnett added 17 points and 14 rebounds for the Celtics, while Paul Pierce scored 23 points before fouling out.James had 29 points and Dwyane Wade scored 20 for the Heat, who host Game 5 on Tuesday.
Dwyane Wade isn't a fan of the NBA's Last Two Minute reports. It's safe to say yesterday's findings won't change his stance on the matter.
The NBA announced on Sunday that DeMarcus Cousins was incorrectly called for a foul on Wade in the closing seconds of the Bulls' 102-99 victory over the Kings.
With the game tied at 99 and 16 seconds remaining, Wade lost control of the ball while going up for a dunk and missed the attempt. Cousins was trailing on the play and appeared to place his hand on Wade's back after Wade had already lost the ball.
Cousins was called for a foul and Wade made one of two free throws, which wound up being the eventual game-winning basket.
Per the NBA, Cousins shouldn't have been called for the foul, stating "Cousins (SAC) has his hand on Wade's (CHI) back while he is airborne, but he does not extend his arm and push him and the contact does not affect the shot attempt."
For what it's worth, the L2M report also stated that Cousins got away with a travel in the final minute, right before his jumper in the paint put Sacramento up 99-97.
After the game a sarcastic Cousins did his best to control his emotions when asked about the foul call against him on Wade.
