2012 NBA Playoffs, Heat Vs. Celtics Game 7 Score Update: Miami, Boston Tied At 73 After Three Quarters

At halftime, the Miami Heat trailed -- by seven points. But 12 minutes later, that deficit has been erased. After the third quarter at the American Airlines Arena, the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics are now tied at 73 after Miami outscored Boston by a score of 27-20 during the third period.

LeBron James has certainly given the Heat a boost. With six points in the third, he is at 20 for the game, along with nine rebounds.

Defensively, though, stopping Boston's Rajon Rondo hasn't been easy, as the guard has finished with 16 points, eight rebounds and 12 assists over 32 minutes.
