Default Heat get rings, then beat Boston

LeBRON JAMES held his index finger aloft, then turned and took a walk nine years in the making.

A few moments later, a championship ring - finally - was his.

James and the Miami Heat celebrated their NBA title once again Tuesday night, with the ring-and-banner ceremony replete with an indoor fireworks show that immediately preceded their season opener, in which they beat the visiting Boston Celtics, 120-107.

James had 26 points and 10 rebounds, and Dwyane Wade scored a game-high 29 points for the Heat. Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 23. Ray Allen, who left Boston for Miami as a free agent, scored 19 points in 31 minutes.

Miami's first ring night was an unmitigated disaster - a 108-66 loss to the Chicago Bulls after the 2006 championship jewelry was issued.
