Miami Heat defeated the Boston Celtics 125-113 in the sixth game of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals and won the series 4-2
Miami Heat – the “hot” showed character in the last quarter and made an impressive turn, ensuring their participation in the title dispute. Jimmy Butler and company will face the Los Angeles Lakers, and the first match of the final series will be played on Wednesday night against Thursday.
Bam Adebayo was above all with a record 32 points in his career. The center of Miami also controlled 14 rebounds, and Butler contributed to the success with 22 points. The youngsters Tyler Hiro and Duncan Robinson did not bend under pressure, and veterans Andre Iguodala and Goran Dragic scored important shots at key moments.
“An amazing series. The matches were equal. We are honored to have the opportunity to continue to the next level. The boys are impatient and will try to enjoy every minute of the finals,” said Miami coach Eric Spolstra.
Jaylon Brown scored 26 points for Boston, and Jason Tatum added 24 and 11 assists, but that was not enough for the Celtics to send the series into the seventh game. The Celts lost the Eastern Conference finals for the third time in the last four seasons.
“Miami deserves a lot of respect. I think they are the best team in the East, and with their performance, they showed that they deserve to reach the finals for the title,” admitted Boston coach Brad Stevens.
The “hot” lost by 6 points at the beginning of the last quarter but did not flinch. Led by Adebayo, the boys of Spolstra made a series of 9 unanswered points and never missed the initiative.
