It is Saturday from 21:30 Game 6 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals will be played between Miami Heat y Boston Celtics, a series that went from being considered just a procedure to being on the verge of making history. The clash can be seen by ESPN.
After winning the first three games, Miami had everything to eliminate a nearly knocked-out Boston but the celebrations beforehand and the Celtics’ forceful reaction in the last two games they put the series 3 to 2 and the morbidity is through the roof.
The thing is never in NBA playoff history was a team able to overturn a three-game deficit and, although Miami is still a wide favorite and will be local this Saturday, in the American league they are rubbing their hands with the possibility of a seventh and definitive game.
Boston won at home this Thursday night by a resounding 110 to 97 in a match that dominated from start to finish (35 to 20 in the first quarter), with four players above 20 points: Derrick White (24), Marcus Smart (23), Jaylen Brown (21) y el estelar Jayson Tatum (21)who also stood out for assisting his teammates (11 goal passes).
So, the Celtics avoided elimination for the second time in a row as they came from winning in Miami by 116 to 99 the fourth game. It is worth remembering that the green team was already on the ropes in the previous phase, when they beat the Philadelphia 76ers 2-3.
For the Heat, their figures performed well below expectations (16 points and 6 losses from Bam Adebayo and just 14 points from Jimmy Butler) and now they will be under the magnifying glass when a new story starts this Saturday in Miami.
The winner of the East will play against the Denver Nuggets, comfortable champion of the Western Conference by sweeping the Los Angeles Lakers 4-0.
