Super comeback victory by the Heat over the Celtics, won thanks to the double play in the final signed by Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo – authors respectively of the three-point game of the definitive overtaking and of the block that decided the match after an extra time. Boston, ahead in double figures at the beginning of the fourth period, is thus forced to surrender at the end of a spectacular match-1 of the Conference final.
Goran Dragic is the top scorer of the match for the Florida team, scoring 29 points and seven rebounds with 11/19 on the shot plus 22 by an extraordinary Jae Crowder on both sides of the field (7/11 on the shot and five triples to target) and 20 by the aforementioned Jimmy Butler – decisive in the final game when the ball weighed more.
Miami proves once again that it has something special, that it is a team that never gives up – even in the most complicated scoring situations: the Heat becomes the first team in NBA history to have won more than one playoff game after starting. the fourth period down by at least ten points (12 against both the Celtics and the Bucks in Game-3). The opposite is true for Boston, which thus wastes the second biggest advantage at the beginning of the last leg of a post-season match which was then lost (16 points lost in 1973 against the Knicks).
