#1 hat I gave everything I had ever von smith bonnie 27.05.2019 03:37

MIAMI -- Their big early lead was gone, the Miami Heat were trailing with 3 minutes remaining and the two-time defending champions seemed very much in trouble. They didnt let Boston score again. Thats how to snap a defensive slump. LeBron James scored 11 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter, Chris Bosh added 16 and the Heat beat the Celtics 93-86 on Tuesday night -- finishing the game on a 9-0 run after trailing 86-84 with 3:08 left. "Its difficult doing what we do," Bosh said. "But thats why were the champs, to do the difficult thing again and get the job done. Tonight was a good start. We just have to build off of it." Chris Andersen scored 13 points and made all five of his shots for Miami, which had given up at least 100 points in four of its last six games. The Heat are 25-1 when allowing less than 100 points; 5-11 otherwise. Brandon Bass scored 15 points, Kris Humphries had 14 points and 13 rebounds, and Jeff Green had 12 points for the Celtics, who enjoyed a 46-33 edge in rebounds but shot only 39 per cent. And when it was over, Celtics coach Brad Stevens had a simple assessment of the final 3 minutes. "LeBron James happened," Stevens said. James made seven free throws in the final 2:33, the only other points down the stretch coming on a jumper by Ray Allen that put the Heat up for good. James did the rest, while the Celtics missed their final four shots. Rajon Rondo, still coming around after returning from knee surgery, missed all eight of his shots, plus a pair of free throws with the Celtics down four with 44.4 seconds remaining. Avery Bradley, the Celtics other starting guard, was lost in the second quarter with a sprained right ankle. "LeBron got a bunch of calls down the stretch," Bass said. "We expect that. We just wished we could have kept him off the line." The Celtics rallied from a 10-point deficit to win 111-110 in their first trip to Miami this season. They seemed poised for a bigger comeback this time, steadily chipping away at a big Miami lead by getting it down to 11 by halftime, then four entering the fourth. And a dunk by Humphries with 3:08 left -- about a half minute after James tried a reverse dunk that rimmed out -- put the Celtics on top for the first time since the opening minutes. Thus ended Bostons offence for the evening. "Its the only way were going to be able to win games, if we defend," James said. As if playing without Dwyane Wade isnt difficult enough for Miami -- he was out for the 12th time this season -- the Heat found themselves facing a sticky situation at his position just 71 seconds after tip-off. Allen, who started in Wades spot, was called for two fouls in a span of 11 seconds. But the Heat rolled the dice and left him in until 4.3 seconds remained in the opening quarter, a move that paid off two ways. One, Allen didnt get in any deeper foul trouble. Two, Michael Beasley made those 4.3 ticks on the clock count. Without even time to work up a droplet of sweat, Beasley banked in a 35-footer at the horn of the first quarter to give Miami a 29-15 edge. And another beat-the-clock 3 -- this one by Bosh, with 2.0 seconds left and somewhat less dramatic than Beasleys -- put Miami up 51-40 at intermission. Boston used a 13-2 run to get to 42-35 late in the second. Thats when Greg Oden made his first home-court impact with the Heat. Oden -- playing in Miami for the first time since Nov. 12, 2008 -- blocked a dunk attempt by Green, then after a timeout had a follow slam of a miss by James to help snuff out the Boston rally. The Celtics just kept coming back. The Heat, though, had the final answer. "Erik sits over there and its been a long stretch for them, a hard stretch for them," Stevens said of Spoelstra. "Im sure the last 5 minutes he feels really good about what he can build on moving forward because that teams really good and they didnt even have Wade." NOTES: The Heat are 24-6 when Wade plays, 6-6 when he doesnt. ... Former Heat C Joel Anthony, who was traded to Boston last week, got a video tribute on the scoreboard and a standing ovation during the first quarter. The ovation was slightly less robust when he hit a jumper in the second quarter, though some still stood and clapped. ... James got his trophy for being Eastern Conference player of the month for December at halftime.

Felicien won a world outdoor title in 2003 and added a world indoor title a year later. She was a favourite to win gold at the 2004 Athens Olympics but instead provided one of the more shocking moments of the Games. Felicien tripped over a hurdle and fell to the ground in the final of what would be her last appearance on the Olympic track. "I think thats what this career has been -- it has been a cocktail of triumphs, a cocktail of defeats. Its a mishmash of everything," Felicien said. "But I will say that the one moment that I felt in 2003, if it meant I had to re-live 10,000 moments like Athens, I would." Felicien proudly watched a replay of her historic effort in Paris on a big screen after making her retirement announcement in front of a few hundred children at a Toronto elementary school. She ran the 100-metre hurdles in 12.53 seconds that day in 2003 to become the first Canadian woman to win an athletics gold medal at the world outdoor championships. "There was so much elation in that moment, it was so intoxicating," she said. "It was all the things that you have worked for, all the things that you had put together, the pieces of the puzzle came together in perfect synergy and I cant explain it more than that. "And yes, Athens was dark and it was terrible and it was horrible. And it will always be the one for me that got away. But at the same time I think its made me a more wholesome person. I dont take things for granted anymore." The 33-year-old from Pickering, Ont., has a sparkling resume from her 13-year track career. Felicien retires as the Canadian record-holder in both the 100-metre hurdles (12.46 seconds) and 60-metre hurdles (7.75). Shes a 10-time national champion, two-time Olympian and two-time Pan Am Games silver medallist. Felicien competed in eight world championships over a 10-year span, taking gold at the 2004 indoor world championships in Budapest, and is a three-time NCAA champion. She started thinking about retirement a few months ago when she wondered whether another four-year Olympic cycle was in the cards. "Quite frankly the tiger that you need to have inside, instead of roaring, it started to purr," she said. "I knew that was a sign that I had to bow out gracefully.dddddddddddd" After the heartbreak in Athens, her Olympic disappointment continued at the 2008 Beijing Games when she was unable to race due to a foot injury. She was gunning for Olympic redemption in the summer of 2012 but failed to qualify for the London-bound team after false-starting in the final at the trials. "For me, the Olympic medal is the only thing that has eluded me," she said. "I dont cry myself to sleep at night over it. I tried valiantly for four Olympic cycles to go after it and it just never happened on the day. But to be amongst the top five, the top six for 10 years, I dont think anyone else has that credit to their name. "So I sleep well at night knowing that I gave everything I had every single time that I was on the track and thats all that I could do." Felicien, who worked as a track analyst at the 2008 Games, plans to start work as a videographer at a Hamilton television station next month. She recently earned a post-graduate certificate in broadcast journalism. "When youre an athlete racing, you never think its going to happen," she said of retirement. "But the day is here. Im older now and a new life beckons." Felicien is the second high-profile Canadian Olympian to call it quits this week. Triathlete Simon Whitfield officially announced his retirement on Wednesday. Prior to making her announcement, Felicien tweeted about how she was feeling. "Today feels just like race day," she said. "No appetite. Major butterflies. Nervous energy. Happy. :)" Fair or not, the image of Felicien sitting in stunned disbelief after her fall on the Athens track -- her hand on her forehead as she leaned against a toppled hurdle -- was one of the lasting memories from that Olympiad. Despite her many successes, she knows it will be a part of what people remember about her career. "I know the narrative is always going to be 2004 and Ive really made peace with that," she said. "If thats a narrative that people are going to use, its on them. But I still think for me its a story that Im really going to use to help empower kids and show them that your darkest hour doesnt define you. "So for me, Im proud of what Ive accomplished. No Olympic medals, which is the one thing Ive always wanted. But I showed myself that on any given day Ive been one of the best."
