Miami Heat takes lead in NBA Eastern Conference final
07:20: The Miami Heat basketball players have taken the lead in the Eastern Conference finals in the NBA playoffs. Heat was too strong for the Boston Celtics 118-107 in its own FTX Arena in Florida.
The Miami team recorded fewer points in three of the four quarters and made the difference in the third quarter (39-14). The Celtics led 62-54 at the halfway point.
Jimmy Butler had an important part in Heat’s victory with 41 points. “MVP Butler did his thing. He took us in tow. During the series, we also need other guys to step up to help Jimmy,” said teammate Tyler Herro.
The second game of the best-of-seven series is also in Miami on Thursday, followed by two games in Boston. The winner of the Eastern Conference will face the winner of the Western Conference in the NBA Finals. In the west, the Dallas Mavericks and Golden State Warriors are in the final.
Miami Heat was also in the final in 2020. Then they lost 4-2 to the Los Angeles Lakers. Heat’s last NBA title was in 2013.
