The Miami Heat took care of business in Game 1 with a 118-107 win over the Boston Celtics to take a 1-0 lead in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Boston led 62-54 at halftime, but the third quarter was all Miami as the Heat began the second half on a 22-2 run to turn an eight-point deficit into a double-digit lead. The Celtics closed that deficit back to four, but the Heat went on a 20-3 run to pull away.

Leading the way for Miami was Jimmy Butler, who scored 41 points without a single three-pointer. He finished 12 of 19 from the field and made all but one of his 18 free throws. Butler also added nine rebounds, five assists, four steals, and three blocks.
