Thursday night the Celtics were routed by the Miami Heat, 98-79, in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Now tied at three games apiece, the teams head to Miami for a decisive Game 7.

Miami's LeBron James practically beat the Celtics single-handedly with 45 points and 15 rebounds.

"It was a matter of too much LeBron, he was absolutely sensational," said Celtics coach Doc Rivers after the game. "Made every shot. Set the tone for the whole team. I thought he gave them comfort in the way he played."

The two sides are now set for a Game 7 showdown in Miami Saturday night. WBUR's Doug Tribou joined WBUR's Morning Edition to talk more about the loss and for a look ahead to Saturday.

This program aired on June 8, 2012.
