Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Miami's Big Three made the big plays, including Chris Bosh's tip-in off a LeBron James miss late in overtime to ice the game, as Miami took a commanding lead in its Eastern Conference semifinal series with a 98-90 victory over Boston at TD Garden.

Boston's Big Three didn't make the plays down the stretch, as Paul Pierce missed a game-winning attempt at the end of regulation and Rajon Rondo was clearly bothered by a dislocated left elbow.

Miami now leads the series, 3-1, with Game 5 slated for Wednesday in Miami.

Dwyane Wade scored 28 points with nine rebounds, Bosh added a double-double of 20 points and 12 boards, but the big star was James, who scored 35 points to go along with 14 rebounds.

Pierce had 27 points and eight rebounds, but Ray Allen was limited to 17 points and Rondo scored 10 with five assists and three turnovers.
