With Jimmy Butler doing – once again – things and miracles in Boston, the Heat prevailed over the Celtics 123-116 in Game 1, broke away from…good morning and took a 1-0 lead in the series.
The Heat started by breaking Milwaukee in Game 1 of the first round. They started with a break in New York in the second round. The Celtics didn’t get the message. They saw Miami defeat Boston 116-123 in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, with the Heat leading 1-0.
Magical Jimmy Butler with 35 points (20 in the second half), 5 rebounds, 7 assists and 6 steals was once again the one to pull away from the Heat, as Bam Adebayo added 20 points, Kyle Lowry, Caleb Martin, Gabe Vincent and . Max Strauss 15 points. Exactly: Miami had 6 players with +15 points (!), which is the definition of a team effort, but on a night – like many so far this year – it belonged to Jimmy Butler.
For the Celtics, Jason Tatum had 30 points – but he didn’t try to shoot in the fourth quarter! Jaylen Brown, 22 points, and Malcolm Brogdon, 19 points.
It was generally a strange game, or rather – a classic where everything plays out. Miami was -13 at halftime and -9 at the end of the second half. But in the third period, he emerged… possessed, starting with a partial score of 13-1, and eventually having a partial aggregate score of 46-25 (the 46 points is a record in team history).
That’s it. Miami now has the upper hand. He got +12 at one point, withstood the Celtics explosion in the Finals and pulled off a fair win.
