With the foot on the “gas” after the two victories in Boston came the Heat, who prevailed over the Celtics with 128-102 inside the Kaseya Center and made it 3-0 in the East Finals series, and are now one win away from the NBA Finals.
The one who made the difference in the game was Gabe Vincent, who set a career high in the playoffs by scoring 29 points on 11/14 shooting, followed by Duncan Robinson with 22 points on 7/11 shooting.
From his side, jimmy butler did it all… everything on the floor once again, finishing the game with 16 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists and 2 steals.
Caleb Martin’s offer is also importantwith 18 points, 7/11 shooting and 4 assists, while Bam Adebayo added 13 points (and 3 rebounds).
On the other, the Celtics couldn’t have expected anything morewhen Jayson Tatum was their leading scorer with 14 points (also having 10 rebounds and 2 assists) and Jaylen Brown having 12 points (6/17 shooting) and 6 rebounds in that game.
Most everything will be decided in the early hours of Wednesday (5/24, 3:30), which, as in the case of the Nuggets-Lakers, no team in the NBA has managed to overturn the 3-0 to their detriment and then get the qualification.
The twelve minutes: 22-30, 46-61, 63-93, 102-128
