BOSTON - Miami’s LeBron James, who scored 45 points on Thursday night in Boston, had what appeared to be a beer poured on him after Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

James was leaving the TD Bank Garden court after Miami’s 98-79 victory when he was doused through a mesh awning toward entrance to the visitor’s locker room. He turned to wipe off his shoulder and kept walking.

A suited man who appeared to be with James also appeared to be drenched.

The Heat forward made 19 of 26 shots Thursday and grabbed 15 rebounds. His effort helped the Heat tied the series at 3-3 and force a deciding Game 7 in Miami.

Neither Heat nor Celtics officials have commented on the incident.
