#3 Celtics vs #5 Heat: Eastern Conference Finals Preview
By Keith P Smith | Sep 14, 2020

https://www.celticsblog.com/2020/9/14/21436690/3-boston-celtics-vs-5-miami-heat-eastern-conference-finals-preview
During the regular season the teams met three times, with Boston winning two of three matchups:

· Boston 112 – Miami 93

· Boston 109 – Miami 101

· Miami 112 – Boston 106

The first game came in early-December. Boston used a huge second quarter and 18 Miami turnovers to win in a blowout. The Celtics were without Gordon Hayward, but Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum and Kemba Walker combined for 78 points in the victory. Jimmy Butler led the way for the Heat with 37 points.

The second matchup was in late-January. The Celtics got 29 points from Gordon Hayward, 25 points from Jaylen Brown (Boston was without Jayson Tatum) and used stifling defense to hold the Heat to 37% shooting overall and 9-of-37 from behind the arc. Free throws kept Miami in the game, as Jimmy Butler and Goran Dragic combined to go 20-of-23 at the charity stripe.

The final contest took place in the bubble. The Heat were without Jimmy Butler, but never trailed in beating the Celtics. Five Miami players were in double-figures in points, led by 62 combined points from Bam Adebayo, Duncan Robinson and Goran Dragic. The Heat hit 15 three-pointers, and took advantage of 16 Celtics turnovers.

so much negativity.

God.

Kemba is not Lebron, calm down. He is getting a lot thrown at him. It will click.
Tatum is not Jordan, he is 22
Brown is 23

They are fighting, They might win, they might lose, but they will continue to improve.

Guys are fighters.

Not feeling good about OT. Offense has been trash.

A foul against Miami. The announcers seem surprised.

I don't care who's on your team, you take it to the rim in a tie game, last possession chance.
