The Boston Celtics are heading to the second round of the NBA playoffs and a matchup with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Ray Allen scored 24 points, making five 3-pointers in the second half, to help host Boston beat Miami 96-86 in Game 5 of their first-round playoff series on Tuesday night and eliminate the Heat. With Heat star Dwyane Wade due to become a free agent — along with James — it could be an eventful summer in Miami. Boston advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals thanks to 16 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists from Rajon Rondo.

S ince they came out of the forest, our ancestors must have looked up to the skies for warm sunlight and cooling breezes. A few, looking down at natural steam vents and hot springs, found themselves able to take advantage of the earth itself for geothermal heat. Skipping to the present, when renewable energy tax credits, rebates and grants have refueled a serious interest in the underground energy source, this heat pump that uses water instead of air has taken a foothold in Howard County as a result of its long-term financial benefits, even after the demise of a local tax incentive.  Those who've gone with geothermal energy are pleased with their decisions.

Depends on D-Wade Brian Schmitz Orlando Sentinel The only team standing in the way of a Heat repeat is the Thunder, the team they just ousted in five games. The Thunder should be the obstacle again next June and for a few more Junes after that. Here's the thing: Dwyane Wade's window is now the Heat's window. He'll turn 31 in January, but he's an old 31 after a career of hitting the floor. A lot depends on D-Wade's health. Battered Mike Miller might retire.

A major swath of the eastern U.S. continues to rack up all-time records for mid-March heat, but not Maryland and other parts of the Piedmont Plateau. Despite a stretch of 80-degree weather last week, the Baltimore region came within a few degrees of missing records. Washington airports, meanwhile, narrowly set new marks. More temperatures approaching 80 are on the way, but records in the low to mid-80s are unlikely to be threatened. Seventy cities from Minnesota to Maine to Florida are expected to surpass or flirt with temperature records Wednesday, according to the Weather Channel . In Baltimore, temperatures are expected to creep up from the low 70s today to the upper 70s by Friday, with lows in the mid 50s. For a record, highs would have to reach the mid-80s and lows the mid-60s.

The allegations against Auburn quarterback Cam Newton continue to proliferate. ESPN.com reported late Tuesday night, citing two anonymous sources, that Newton and his father discussed a pay-for-play plan with Mississippi State recruiters. School representatives are said to have relayed that information to SEC compliance officials in January. One of ESPN's unnamed sources, described only as a "recruiter," said Cecil Newton told him it would take "more than a scholarship" to secure a commitment from his son. Auburn coach Gene Chizik said that Cam Newton will start for the second-ranked Tigers against Georgia on Saturday but said nothing about the latest round of accusations.

A look at the week's weather forecast shows the up-and-down flirts with spring may be over. The warmth could threaten some records, but it won't be perfectly sunny every day. Temperatures are expected to top 70 degrees for highs all week, and even reach near 80 degrees. Today should be the coolest of the week, in the mid- to upper-60s. Seventy-five degrees will be the norm for the rest of the week. A day that warm would have come close to Sunday's record high of 75, but beating records gets tougher later in the week.

With a daytime high of 98 degrees in Owings Mills according to Weather.com, staying cool at Ravens training camp was a challenge for the players and coaches on the practice fields. Wide receivers Torrey Smith and LaQuan Williams both dealt with leg cramps caused by dehydration, and at one point, free safety Ed Reed wondered aloud where the I.V. drips were. Fans who attended Thursday afternoon's session were treated to popsicles. Still, coach John Harbaugh said the hot and humid weather is a good barometer for how diligent the players were during the offseason.

The Aug. 10 workout at which Morgan State football player Marquese Meadow fell ill was a one-hour, non-contact session geared toward conditioning, a university spokesman said Wednesday. Meadow, a freshman on the Bears' football team, died Sunday of heat stroke after spending two weeks in the hospital. Morgan State spokesman Clint Coleman reiterated Wednesday that the school believes all proper procedures were followed by the coaching staff and athletic trainers. He said Meadow was attended to by a trainer after becoming disoriented toward the end of the Aug. 10 session, during which players were not in pads.

Autopsy results showing that Morgan State University football player Marquese Meadow died of heat stroke have prompted his mother to question whether coaches and trainers monitored the heat at practice or gave players enough water breaks. Meadow, an 18-year-old freshman from Washington, D.C., died early Sunday after being hospitalized for two weeks. School officials said he became disoriented after an Aug. 10 football practice. His death has been ruled accidental, said Bruce Goldfarb, spokesman for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

Ravens Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata can likely expect to hear from the league office in the near future. Ngata kicked Redskins offensive guard Shawn Lauvao after Lauvao crushed Ravens cornerback Dominique Franks toward the end of a 19-yard run by Redskins running back Alfred Morris in the first quarter. Ngata retaliated to stick up for his teammate after Lauvao stuck Franks a bit late. "When I saw Lauvao do that, I kind of was just pissed that he was doing that and just nudged him," Ngata said.

If the first political ad for the general election is any indication, the battle for the governor's mansion may take a negative tone, some political observers say. Democrat Anthony G. Brown released a 30-second TV spot Friday that takes a swipe at his opponent's economic policies, saying Republican Larry Hogan would "take Maryland families backwards" if elected governor. Brown has put at least $23,000 toward airing the ad in the Baltimore market this weekend, according to reports filed with regulatory agencies.

Everyone has a remedy to beat the summer heat, from a trip to the pool to a snowball from a shack. At Midnight Sun, we prefer the tried, true and futile practice of complaining about unrelenting humidity over cold drinks at a comfortable bar. It accomplishes little besides a buzz, and that's just fine. On a recent Friday evening, Le Garage Beer Bar & Frites - which opened in May on Hampden's West 36th Street, better known as the Avenue - offered a low-key backdrop for such sweat-induced grumbling.

As music videos played on flat screen TVs overhead, Brendon Lee, 7, sank into a brown cushioned stool at Shoe City on Monday while his great-aunt poked the toe of the white Converse sneaker on his left foot. It was the right shoe but the wrong size. "Your toe is right there," said Evelyn Forby, as she waited for a store associate to check in the back for something larger. New shoes were the last thing on the list as the Baltimore resident wrapped up back-to-school shopping for the boy she's raised since he was a baby.

In addition to making us miserable, the recent stretch of scorching weather seems to have affected our brains. The record heat — in the high 90s — not only makes it feel like the stultifying days of last summer, it also made some of us display the kind of brain-dead behavior usually reserved for the doldrums of August. How else can you explain these recent events: In the torpor of a 93 degree day, a 25-year-old Baltimore woman decides this would be a good time to teach her 14-year-old niece how drive by letting the teen wheel a van around Lake Montebello.

Summer may technically be over with, but summer-like sticky weather is expected to last through the week in Baltimore. Dew points haven't fallen below 70 degrees at BWI Marshall Airport since Saturday. With temperatures only in the 70s and 80s mostly since then, that meant thick, wet air over Labor Day weekend. The dew point takes into account both the relative humidity and the air temperature, giving a better picture of how humidity feels -- and anything above about 65 feels pretty uncomfortable.
