MIAMI -- The gameplan was sound and the bodies held up, they took a lead to halftime and they kept their composure. If there was a big-picture strategy to this Boston Celtics season of injuries and surgeries, sprains and spurs, it was to hang on and hang on and hang on. They wouldn't beat themselves. Maybe everyone else would crack first. Many did; Miami didn't.

The Heat finally shifted to a sixth gear on Saturday night, a gear that the Celtics couldn't reach. It took until the fourth quarter of Game 7 in a series that saw legendary performances, surprising road wins and a course-altering comeback from injury for Miami to do it. The Heat prevailed 101-88 to advance to the 2012 NBA Finals, where they will face the Oklahoma City Thunder. Both the Heat and the Thunder boast rosters constructed around three stars whose games complement each other. The highly-anticipated match-up will be one of Boston's many legacies.
