I would like to thank the Miami Heat for being in this ECF with the Celtics. I both look forward and don’t look forward to the rest of these games.

I’m just sitting here literally in awe of how good that game was. Some fouls sucked,but the fight and back n forth, holy shit. Honestly all I could think of is how thankful I am to see this series.

[–]Raptors fabrar 76 指標 5小時前
I have a feeling this entire series is gonna be like this. Both teams are just about evenly matched, play hard as fuck and are steered by two of the best coaches in the league.
[–]Raptors madtolive 578 指標 5小時前
Imagine being a Celtics fan and surviving a 7 game rock fight with the Raps, and your reward is playing this even more relentless buzzsaw of a Miami team.

Yeah holy shit I do not envy Celtics fans right now. Our series was bad enough for me, but them having to go through an even more stressful version of that...lmao.

Jimmy Butler is a superstar in every sense of the word.
Hope y'all learned that today.
[–]deponent 8 指標 6小時前*
If you just learned that today, you're a slow ass learner.
FOR ALL THOSE WHO SAY HE ISN'T A SUPERSTAR:
Superstar doesn't mean scoring 30 per game.
Superstar means being able to lead a team deep in the playoffs. Which he just did.
Superstar means being able to carry an ass team like the Wolves to the 3rd seed. Superstar means turning a good team into a contender that was one lucky bounce (or about 28 unlucky bounces) away from the conference finals.
You can see his impact on a team by how his teams played after he left.

I don't think there's a better cultural match in the NBA than Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat. Imagine thinking he was coming to this organization just to vacation in Miami.
[–]Rockets CoogiMonster 121 指標 6小時前
I want Jimmy Butler and the scrappy underrated Heat to beat the “natural talent” AD and Bron in the finals.
Easily going to be the most rewarding finals for me in the past 10 years.

If Miami won that, I think it would be the most satisfying Heat NBA championship ever
[–]Celtics 8bitowners 46 指標 6小時前
The Heat definitely deserved that win. Shouldn't have even gone to overtime tbh. Looking forward to the rest of this series though!

Honestly Miami should've won in regulation if it weren't for the Marcus Smart flop. Terrible call by the refs
[–]Pistons Another_one37 43 指標 6小時前
He's so good at flopping in the clutch. It's goddamn infuriating, but you have to admit he's fucking top tier at it.

He’s been known for his flopping since college, if anyone’s gonna perfect the craft it’s Smart.
[–]Mavericks ItsWackMan 48 指標 6小時前
I'm seriously proud of the Heat team not letting the incredibly, historically bad calls in crunch time against them get into their heads. Love this team! Seriously refs, wtf?!?!?!
[–]calltheambulampssir 6 指標 6小時前*
I think Boston really needs Hayward back, I just don't feel like their offense right now is sustainable without their best playmaker. Smart dropped 26, they had Miami on the ropes several times, they got bailed out by a whistle on the final regulation play, and they still lost. Tatum was gassed in OT and Boston probably would have liked some easier looks down the stretch.
Meanwhile Miami's offense feels much more fluid AND they made big plays when it mattered the most. Plus their depth is just insane, Spo brought out DJJ just to guard their best player on the final possession. Meanwhile Brad's best option was to go small once Theis fouled out.

[–]Hawks RustyCorkscrew 56 指標 6小時前*
Bam really needs to work on developing a mid-range shot. There were more than a couple of times tonight where he had plenty of space but just couldn't put it through.
He's already extremely versatile, but he'd be all the more dangerous with a reliable jumpshot.
[–]Heat foreskin4sale 49 指標 6小時前
He’s been knocking them down consistently before tonight. Pretty sure he’s had multiple clutch midrange shots in the other series, but yea definitely not reliable yet
[–][MIA] Glen Rice crashingtheboards 7 指標 6小時前
He, in the Heat's opinion, deserved MIP. He's only been in the league a few years.
[–]Celtics sentony93 597 指標 6小時前*
Great fucking game god damn.
Edit: can't even be mad, Miami had 4 clutch af plays with the Herro 3, Jimmy 3, Jimmy +1 and that block by Bam.
[–]Celtics sentony93 33 指標 6小時前
That they did.. I'm still more confident in this series than last series for some reason. Our offense didn't seem as big of a struggle getting good looks, but defense was very shaky at times, miscommunication on switches involving Kemba, losing people off of cuts, and straight line drives by Dragic and Crowder

I mean I wish we could win in 4 but this series is probably going to atleast 6, I’d be willing to bet 7. If they continue along the lines of today’s game it’s really anyone’s series
[–]Spurs 66mpamies 82 指標 6小時前
I know Bam's block will get all the attention, but i am so fucking impressed with this kid, Herro. this guys is on the court with Jimmy fucking buckets and Goran "best performing PG in the playoffs, change my mind" Dragic and he takes a fucking 3 in the clutch and drills it. The balls on this kid must be fucking huge, im so excited to see what his prime will look like. Between luka, murray and mitchell, i still think he can be the best SG of this generation.
[–]Heat Yemzzzz 28 指標 6小時前
It’s all encouraged by the whole team. Our vets and our coach have so much confidence in the kid it’s amazing to see him answering the challenge. I can’t wait to see him grow as a player

That’s what I love about him. He’s not scared to shoot the ball, but he’s not stupid about it either. If he continues at this pace, he’ll have a long career in the NBA.
[–]Spurs 66mpamies 8 指標 6小時前
Its one thing to know its okay to take a shot and its another one to do it like that. When i play pick up games with my friends (I suck) and i miss shots, they dont say anything to me, but still i will pass the ball when the game is close.

Spo wasn't forced, Herro stepped up and Spo gave him a bigger role. Duncan, as much as I love his sharpshooting wizardry, is just straight up a liability in defense currently.

People shitting on Kemba are really failing to give the credit that Miami’s defense deserves. They trapped him almost every time he touched the ball. It’s crazy how fast they recover when in rotation preventing the trap from ever being punished.
