Celtics defeat Heat in Miami, win one of the NBA Finals | NBA

After a first half of many errors and low results, the Boston Celtics kicked off in the third quarter, maintained their pace in the final quarter and beat the Miami Heat by 93-80, Wednesday night, in Miami. With a 3-2 decision in the Eastern Conference, the team is one win away from returning to the NBA Finals. The last time was in 2008 led by Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen. Game 6 takes place Friday at 9:30 p.m. in Boston.

The 24-2 line between the end of the third game and the beginning of the last game decided the duel. Jaylen Brown was the game’s top scorer with 25 and also appeared in defense. Jason Tatum was close to a hat-trick with 22 points, 12 rebounds and 9 assists, but only made 7 of 20 from the field, and 2 of 8 from perimeter. Alhorford contributed 16 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists.

Boston took 23 fewer shots from the field than Miami in the game (94-71), but scored 3 more shots (33-30). In addition to the less-than-critical performance, the Heat seemed to be in no physical condition to respond in the final stage. Pam Adebayo scored 18 points and 10 rebounds, but Jimmy Butler didn’t cross 13 points (4 of 18 on the field). Kyle Lowry played 24 minutes and had no point or assist. Tyler Hero missed again with a calf injury.

Teams that won Game 5 after a 2-2 draw ended up winning the series 81.8% of the time in NBA history (184-41). Even with the ups and downs of the series, with Miami leading 20 or more points in Games 1 and 3 and Boston in Games 2, 4 and 5, the mountain that Florida’s team will climb next Friday also looks high. A lot at this time of the season. Butler and his comrades will try to prove otherwise.
