The 2023 Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics have been a roller coaster ride.
Through the first three games, despite some brilliant play here and there from Boston, the Miami Heat have looked like the stronger team in those battles against the Celtics.
Miami looked like they were gonna win the series against Boston in game 4 — until the Celtics woke up in the third quarter to win that game & stay alive in this series.
Since game 4, the Celtics have gained new life & have been crushing the Heat in games 5 and 6. while The Heat has been freefalling.
Despite a strong game from the Celtics in game 6, the Heat had a shot to end the series and advance to the NBA Finals. But Celtics player, Derrick White scored a game-winning basket to keep the Celtics' season alive. The Celtics have all the momentum going into game 7, which will be in Boston.
The Miami Heat are in trouble.
The Celtics have a chance to make history tomorrow. No NBA team has ever come back from a 3–0 deficit to win a series before. Only three teams have come close to achieving that impossible task — but would lose the series.
- The 1951 New York Knicks
- The 1994 Utah Jazz
- The 2003 Portland Trailblazers
Boston could be the first team to win a series from a 3–0 deficit, and I believe they can.
I fear that the Celtics will blow the Heat out on their home court in front of their fans in game 7 — unless the Celtics are drained from climbing out of a 3–0 hole, that’s the only shot Miami has of winning this series.
The Heat will have to dig deep to finish this series.
Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo need to DOMINATE tomorrow to get their team to the finish line.
Meanwhile, the Celtics just need to keep riding the great momentum they’re on to guide them to the NBA finals. The two Jays (Jayson Tatum & Jaylen Brown) are going to fight hard to get their team a game 7 win.
Basketball fans will find out who will play the Denver Nuggets tomorrow. Hopefully, it’ll be a thrilling game 7.
