The Miami Heat and Boston Celtics are each one win away from a 2012 NBA Finals date against the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the teams will decide who advances Saturday night in Game Seven of the Eastern Conference Finals. Behind a performance from the ages by LeBron James, the Heat blew out the Celtics in Boston, 98-79, on Thursday to force Saturday's clinching game. James scored 30 of his 45 points in the first half and became the first player since Wilt Chamberlain in 1964 to post 45 points, 15 rebounds, and five assists in a postseason game.

Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy will have the call for ESPN at 8:30 Eastern, with Doris Burke providing updates from the sidelines. Game One of the Finals is set for Tuesday, June 12th.
