It’s come to this, and now this one game will determine the ultimate winner.
The Boston Celtics and Miami Heat will meet in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals at 9:30 a.m. ET on March 30.
The series is tied at three games apiece, but the mood is completely in Boston’s favor. They were down 3-0 through three games, but then won three straight from games four through six.
What’s more, the venue for Game 7 is Boston’s home, TD Garden. Boston ace Jayson Tatum said, “I still can’t believe it. I’ve never been so excited to go back to Boston in my life.”
“I’ve never been more excited to be back in Boston in my life,” he said, especially after Derrick White’s buzzer-beating putback in Game 6. As Jaylen Brown recalled, “White came out like a bolt of lightning and saved the game. It was an unbelievable movie.”메이저놀이터
Boston is looking to make history. The Celtics are only the fourth team in NBA history to take a best-of-seven playoff series to Game 7 after losing three straight. However, the previous three teams all lost in Game 7.
Miami, which had made it this far as the No. 8 seed in the East, panicked. From a chance at a sweep to a reverse sweep, the team’s one-two punch of Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo faltered badly on offense and gave up the lead.
Butler said, “If I had played better, we wouldn’t have gone to Game 7. It’s totally my fault. I’m going to play well in Game 7. We’re going to win,” he said.
