Boston Celtics historic after the win against the Miami Heat
The Boston Celtics won Game 4 of the playoffs against the Miami Heat, reducing the series to 3–1.
Something that no other team in NBA history has accomplished.
– As cliche as it sounds… we’re just trying to take it one game at a time, says Celtics star Jayson Tatum.
Ahead of the fourth game of the playoff series between Boston Celtics and Miami Heat the Heat had a 3–0 lead in games.
A win on Tuesday night and the Miami team would advance NBA-Final, where the Denver Nuggets await.
But the Celtics would put an end to those plans when, in less than three minutes, they turned the game around and managed to get their first win in the series.
“Everything that matters”
The Miami Heat took control of the game immediately and after Max Stru’s three points 90 seconds into the third period, they had acquired a lead of nine points.
But then the Boston Celtics woke up.
After a quick timeout, they turned the game around and gained a five-point lead before the final period.
The scoring party continued and when the final whistle sounded at the FTX Arena in Miami, the Celtics had won the game 116-99.
– Now we just have to win one more. That’s all that matters. We understand the odds are against us, but we’re a team that believes in us no matter what, and we just have to keep going, and all that matters is the next game, says Celtics player Marcus Smart.
The best scorer in the game was Jayson Tatum, who scored 34 points and 11 rebounds for his Boston Celtics.
With the Celtics’ win, it is now 3-1 in games to the Miami Heat – a historic result.
No team in NBA history has ever rallied from a 3-0 deficit in a best-of-seven series.
“As cliche as it sounds … we’re just trying to take it one game at a time,” Celtics star Jayson Tatum said after the game.
Now awaits match five between the teams, which will be played on Friday, May 26 at 02:30 Swedish time.
