BOSTON (AP) -- Rajon Rondo had a triple-double with 11 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds, and the Boston Celtics beat the Miami Heat 85-82 on Sunday, with the defending Eastern Conference champions clinching the season series against their top pursuer.
LeBron James scored 22 points for Miami, which had won eight in a row. But he missed the first of two free throws with 13 seconds left and the Heat trailing by two points. He dived into the stands to knock away the inbound pass, but threw it right to Ray Allen.
Glen "Big Baby" Davis made both of his free throws with 6.3 seconds to go, and Mike Miller missed a 3-point attempt in the final seconds that would have sent the game to overtime.
With the win, the Celtics (39-14) took back the top spot in the conference from Miami (39-15) and earned the tiebreaker for home-court advantage in the playoffs.
