NBA Playoffs 2012 Results: Boston Celtics vs Miami Heat
Game 5, Eastern Conference Finals
June 5 (June 6 MLA Time)

With Chris Bosh back for the Miami Heat, the Game 5 of the NBA Playoffs: Eastern Conference Finals was a chance for the Heat to end their 2 straight losses, but it's not what happened.

Game 5 marked Chris Bosh after missing 9 playoff games due to a lower abdominal injury he sustained during the Heat's Game 1 conference semifinals with the Indiana Pacers last May 13. Without Bosh in those 9 playoff games, Miami Heat lost 4 times including Game 3 and Game 4 vs Bolton Celtics.

But even with Bosh, Miami Heat still lost Game 5, which was held at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida Tuesday night, June 5 (Wednesday AM, June 6 MLA time and was aired live via satellite on ABS-CBN).

Miami Heat ended 1st half of Game 5 with an 8-point lead over the Celtics, but the latter managed to trim down the lead to just 2 by the end of the 2nd Quarter.

The Heat's lead went up to 9 in the middle of the 3rd Quarter, scores tied with a minute remaining but the quarter finished with the Celtics having a 5-point lead over the Heat, 65-60.

With 6 minutes remaining in the 4th Quarter, Miami Heat regained lead to 6 points, 72-78, but with less than 2 minutes left, Boston Celtics was leading, 86-85. And it went on until end of 4th Quarter, with the final score, 94-90.

Boston Celtics now lead Eastern Conference Finals series, 3-2.
