MIAMI (AP) — The Miami Heat are headed back to the NBA finals.

LeBron James had 31 points and 12 rebounds, Dwyane Wade scored 23 points and the Heat rallied from as many as 11 points down to beat the Boston Celtics 101-88 on Saturday night in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Chris Bosh finished with 19 points off the Miami bench, and made a 3-pointer that sparked a huge Heat run to end the game.

Next up: The Heat play Game 1 of the title series in Oklahoma City on Tuesday night.

Rajon Rondo finished with 22 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds for Boston, which got 19 points from Paul Pierce in what might be the last game of the “Big Four” era for the Celtics.
