It’s not over. It seemed likely, and even expected, but the Celtics used their pride, temperamental, to win the fourth game in Florida and extend the series. label of ESPN Indicated that there was a 149–0 in those qualifiers who went 3–0 and therefore, Greens would be eliminated., It’s already 150-0, As the Lakers Prove to the Nuggets That, Indeed, Things Stay the Same, Now it has to be seen whether summer also follows this path or not. At the moment, they miss the opportunity to close the tie through the front door and now go to the Garden away from the protective wing provided by the Kaseya center, where they have lost their first duel in these playoffs. Before that, 6-0, a 6-1 hour that rings alarm bells for anyone with a heat. At the end of the day, a good fan is insecure until he sees his team go and nervous until Miami wins and makes it to the finals., If it does, of course.
It was tough for the Celtics: they fell 29–23 at the end of the first quarter and 56–50 at halftime. But he showed extraordinary practice in personality and survivability: 38 points in the third period, an impressive figure which he also compensated for by conceding only 23 goals, That’s where the comeback started, with Jayson Tatum converting 14 points in 12 minutes. The result then was 79–88. At the end of the game, 99–116. The Heat fell under 100 points for the first time in the series, sinking to just 43 in the entire second half and shooting 8 of 32 on 3-pointers, a statistic they could not come back from and struggled with. It was embarrassingly extended in the second and third periods: 3 of 16. This time neither Duncan Robinson (0 of 4), nor Max Strauss (1 of 5), nor Gabe Vincent (1 of 4), nor Caleb Martin (2 of 5) were substitutes., It did not have an unintended effect. They collapse. And they lost.
Jimmy Butler was not fazed this time either, despite his good numbers: 29 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists, with 1 steal and 1 block. He played 39 minutes in the second half and scored 20 goals. ending your encounters as you usually do when you activate playoff modebut there was no way, He finished with -20 on the track, shot 9 of 21 from the field and made 1 triple on 4 attempts, much in line with the rest of his team. Bam Adebayo didn’t do the job either (10+5, with only 7 shot attempts), Vincent scored 17 goals in 28 minutes despite not being successful on a triple, and Martin managed just over 16. In addition, Kevin Love contributed two triples for 6 points in less than 12 minutes he was on track, while Kyle Lowry didn’t rebound: 5+8+6, but shooting 2 of 8, 1 of 5 3-pointers and 4 of 15 turnovers for the Heat Another variable that made the Heat inferior.
With the Celtics, Jayson Tatum re-emerged and became the best on his team, something he does intermittently rather than consistently during the regular season and playoffs. So maybe, just maybe, The Celtics are in this position for many other reasons, Of course, this time the coin turned out to be in the lead: 33 points (25 in the second half), 11 rebounds, 7 assists, 1 steal and 2 blocks made up for his 5 losses (only 1 in the previous two quarters). Starr shot 14 of 22 from the field, 4 of 9 from 3-point range, and only 2 times (1 hit) at the personal line. The entire Celtics quintet scored 10 or more points, with Robert Williams coming off the bench (7, judicious performance) and Grant doing the same, with 14 points on 4 of his 6 shots from outside. Brilliant performance from a team that seeks refuge in the Garden again, his home, where he lost the first two games of the series. There he would try to force the sixth. And the Heat, of course, reach the finals. we will see.
