Miami Heat beat Boston, pull off comeback and are NBA Finalists

Basketball and the NBA, its great exponents, are inexplicable. It never stops being surprising, breaking with the script and changing stories when the obvious was going the other way. For the benefit of the show and history. The Miami Heat are the defending champions of the East in one of the craziest series ever in the playoffs. 0-3 starter. 3-3 of the eternal Boston Celtics. And that of the seventh… who only had the color of Florida (84-103) And it’s worth a passport to the Finals where Nikola Jokic’s Denver Nuggets await. The best story from a franchise that does things the way they should. A blow for some Celtics who have yet to win a ring since 2008.

It’s amazing how the Miami Heat changed history yet again. From getting it done, to suffering, to scoring seventh comfortably. There was no tension, it was a cascade of errors by the Boston Celtics, 32/82 in shooting and a terrible 9/42 in triples, eight balls lost by Jaylen Brown and some rest given by the Heat that set the pace they wanted, Jimmy Butler led the attack (28+7+6) and guided the entire Spoelstra system with surprise, Caleb Martin was the X factor It destroyed everything in the final set (26+10) and they passed like a whirlwind on a court that had once made the difference in the seventh game.

Don’t miss a thing with NBA League Pass!

It all accumulated. Tatum touched down on the first play after spraining his ankle, Brown in a disastrous square of adding turnovers. And summer, comfortable. Early, Butler and Caleb Martin each took advantage of a blocker defense that the Celtics didn’t read (15-22, 12′). An advantage that multiplied after a serious spurt in the first minutes of the second set. Released in the shot, Duncan Robinson came out, a Caleb Martin was also in a state of grace and the Celtics had no answer (25-38, 17′).

Intuitive in attack and always quick to respond to Boston’s offers. Derrick White and Robert Williams, dominant at both baskets, tried to respond with more physical volume and some success. White took eight seconds and the ‘Timelord’ adjusted the defense to the maximum. They reduced the gap to eight (66-74, 34′). But they fell back into their vices. in the seventh meetingAfter doing the impossible in a conference finals.

The Heat put on the clap. They looked like they wanted to till the end, Caleb Martin continues his insane series, signing eight consecutive points (two triples), zone defense more punishing And Butler put on four more in the fourth dawn. Robinson, from the outside, certified the victory with a maximum of 18 (86-68, 40′). Meanwhile, the Celtics were languishing among mistakes.

A Miami Party. In a game with few points, no apparent emotion. The strange marvel of Erik Spoelstra. Build from scratch, work and take advantage of every opponent’s failure. Lowry and Adebayo hit more against ever-soaking defenses and the 20-point barrier The answer was with two consonants from the middle distance. The seventh game was won through chloroform.

Another mistake by Smart and Adebayo to reach the hoop was the end with two minutes left on the Garden’s clock. An NBA mecca was silent, the Miami Heat swept everything away. Boys team is living the other side of the game without being drafted and Jimmy Butler is angry with the world But a winning series and one in basketball history. Jokic is the star of the Finals, Miami accepts the role of getting down in the mud and fighting. They are already immortal. Now they want your ring.
