Heat take 2-0 lead into Boston in East finals


MIAMI (AP) - Dwyane Wade led a comeback from a 2-0 series deficit in the 2006 NBA finals. LeBron James rallied his team from two games down to win the Eastern Conference crown a year later.

So they know this East title series is not over.

As the series shifts to Boston for Game 3 on Friday, Miami expects to see the best the Celtics can muster. A 44-point, 10-assist, eight-rebound night from Rajon Rondo went for naught in a 115-111 overtime loss in Game 2, as Miami held serve at home.

Only 14 teams in NBA history have rallied from an 0-2 hole to win a series, and the Celtics haven't done it since 1969. But Wade and James know it can happen, and the Celtics believe they're capable as well.
