Heat 106, Knicks 94.
"We do not take this for granted," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "This was a tough series. We feel very good about moving on and it'll only get tougher from here."
"We will savor this win tonight," James said. "And then we get to work tomorrow and get ready for Indiana."
"We fought, under the circumstances," Anthony said. "I'm not one to make any excuses for anything. ... But Miami, they're a tough defensive team. They stick to what their schemes are."
"It was fun, man," James said. "Melo's one of the most competitive players I've ever played against in a playoff series.
"Miami is a very good team," Stoudemire said. "You have to give credit to them."
"There's a lot of pride that takes place in this kind of series," Wade said. "Even though it was a five-game series, it was a very tough series to win. ... I thought it helped us. You couldn't overlook this team."
"It was very crucial," James said. "We had an 11- or 12-point lead in Game 4 and we weren't able to bump it up to 15, 16. ... We allowed them to get back into the game. We were very conscious tonight when we got that lead."
"I thought we played well in spurts," Knicks interim coach Mike Woodson said. "Our guys got a short taste of what playoff basketball's about. It's something this summer we've got to sit and think about and hopefully get ready for next season."
Grizzlies 92, Clippers 80.
"We've had our backs against the wall. We still have them," said Gasol, who had his best game in this series. "We haven't done anything yet, and we want to take it back to L.A. and give them another big battle."
