BOSTON -- It was a first for LeBron James.
James fouled out of Game 4 for the first time in postseason game on Sunday. For the final tense seconds of overtime, James watched from the bench as the Heat tried desperately to steal a game at TD Garden.
Miami had a chance at the win but Dwyane Wade's three-point attempt came up short.
IT WAS OVER WHEN...
Wade pumped faked at the buzzer and got off a clean shot from three-point range. The shot was on line but hit the front of the rim.
A RETURN FOR BOSH?
Chris Bosh, who missed his ninth straight game with an abdominal strain on Sunday, is hoping to return to action for Tuesday's Game 5 in Miami. Bosh wouldn't commit to a return after the game but the team is aiming to active Bosh, according to a report by ESPN.
The Heat lost for the first time in postseason history on Sunday. The Heat is 6-1 all-time in postseason overtime games. The Heat managed just two points in the extra period.
Both Dwyane Wade and LeBron James passed up the final shot of regulation. James drew a double team from Mickael Pietrus and Kevin Garnett with time ticking down. He passed to Udonis Haslem, who's off-balance shot missed the rim.
Unproductive first halves have plagued the Heat throughout the postseason and Sunday was no different. The Heat trailed 61-47 at halftime.
