NBA games: Boston Celtics win by match point

The Boston Celtics earned a game point in the Eastern Conference Finals and beat the Miami Heat 93-80 in Game Five. In a defensive attrition battle, the visitors found their rhythm in the third quarter. Miami, on the other hand, threw one ticket after another from the ocean.

15.6 percent hit the Heat from distance (7/45), so it didn’t help them throwing them to the basket 23 more times thanks to 18 attacking rebounds. 31.9 percent of the field was shockingly weak. Aside from Pam Adebayo (18, 8/15 FG, 10 rebounds) few came up. Jimmy Butler needed 18 throws for 13 points (4/18 FG) and a 40-minute break despite knee issues. None of the other freshmen such as Kyle Lowry (0, 0/6 FG) or Max Strauss (4, 0/9 FG) did either, Gabe Vincent (15) and Duncan Robinson (11) fared better.

The Celtics, who improved their playoff record away to 6-2, were led by star duo Jaelyn Brown (25, 10/19 FG) and Jason Tatum (22, 7/20 FG, 12 rebounds and 9 assists), with the former . He plays in particular the strong second half. Otherwise, only Al Horford (16) and Derrick White (14) scored in double digits. Robert Williams III excelled defensively (6 points, 10 rebounds, 3 nets). Daniel Theiss didn’t see any minutes in trash time either.

While Marcus Smart (White off the bench) and third Williams (without a minute limitation despite knee issues) were fit in time for the Celtics, sixth man Tyler Hero (thigh) missed the Heat’s second straight game. It was still available to Laurie, Strauss, Vincent, and PJ Tucker, all of whom are on Doubtful’s list. Before the match began, there was a minute’s silence for the victims of the Ovaldi/Texas Elementary School shooting.

After the 82-102 disaster in Game 4, the Heat had to react. Although they had a few offensive rebounds, they missed many passes, so Williams III brought the first points to the scoreboard over two minutes later by way of a hint. Tatum grabbed his shoulder early, and Smart had to walk out with two misses three minutes later. Adebayo woke up from my sleep to Miami with a quickie. With the Celtics, White was in the clear. The hosts led by five points in a row and the energy was just right. Twelve minutes later, the South Beach team was at 19:17 in a game with a few points.
