Was that Tyler Herro or Michael Jordan?

Calm down Michael Jordan was never this good in the playoffs as a rookie

So when they open the Champagne after the conf finals win, will they be breaking the law and have to therefore forfeit the eastern conference championship to Celtics?

That cut with a minute left was sublime. Jimmy backing his guy down limited the space he had to exploit but his perfect dive left his defender in the dust. Insanely savvy play at a clutch moment. Wildly impressed with the kid.

We've been doing that all year. Duncan, Herro and Leonard lived off of that with Jimmy just chilling on the wing.

Donovan Mitchell, Devin Booker and Kobe Bryant all slid to the 13th pick.
Tyler Herro joins the list of star guards that fit that category.

People need to start viewing Herro as a potential future MVP. He is super skilled and plays the game with a very high basketball IQ.

I can't even enjoy this win and Herro having one of the most impressive rookie playoff performances in NBA HISTORY all because I'm worried about Bam's wrist. DAMMIT MAN I CANT BELIEVE WE'RE 1 WIN AWAY FROM THE FINALS

What were the expectations among Heat fans mid season? Just curious if you all knew/thought this was a Finals team.
[–]Heat Grazingbuffalo 56 指標 1小時前
I can't speak for all Heat fans but personally going into January I thought 2nd round exit with ECF hope. Even before this series started I was just glad to be here, can't believe we're up 3-1 right now.
[–]Heat TheLogicalErudite 641 指標 1小時前
Second round exit and be competitive. If anyone tells you they thought we'd be in the finals with primarily rookies they're lying.
People were saying we weren't going to make the playoffs but we knew we were top 5 in the east. Didn't think we'd match up so well against Mil, Tor, and Bos though.
[–]Heat rickleprick 91 指標 1小時前
You underestimate how much of a homer I am. In all seriousness though, Heat were looking like a legit Bucks stopper so people were already having post-second round hopes.
[–]Heat mhj0808 155 指標 1小時前*
I knew we had a realistic shot to beat Milwaukee during the midseason because of how well we defended Giannis, but I was not expecting that level of dominance over them AND being able to outlast the Celtics.
[–]Heat Fastbird33 11 指標 1小時前
This was not really dominance over the Celtics though. Every game as been close.
[–]Lakers BeefyHamstrings 126 指標 1小時前
That 3 that Dragic made to extend the lead to 7 with 1:36 left has to be one of the more wide open 3s you'll ever see in a game. No one within 20 feet of him on a CORNER 3. Great extra pass by Iguodala.
[–]Mavericks Xmauler 43 指標 1小時前
Pretty crazy to think that Miami has the potential to be a bonafide contender for years to come with how things are panning out for them, considering they’ve been in cap limbo two years ago.
[–]Heat Graym 39 指標 1小時前
Potential? Herro, Bam and Duncan Robinson are under contract next season for a combined $11 million. We have tons of cap space to work with on top of this existing team. Riley will load up with vets on a 1 year contact this offseason and go after a max player next offseason and then sign Bam to a max extension after the signing.

Spolestra is a legend for gaining the most out of his players. Every game it seems like any Heat player can pop off and win them a game. HOF coach, one of the best to ever do it. Respect
[–]clevergirls_ 6 指標 1小時前
The NBA will do anything they can to make it a Lakers / Celtics finals, but tonight Tyler Herro said "No."
Also big up to Jimmy for hitting the clutch FTs at the end.

If the Heat win the Finals I will buy a Jimmy Butler Heat jersey, wear it through the streets of Philadelphia, waving a sign saying he was right to leave.

19-8 turnover difference for the Celtics is less than ideal.
[–]NBA proshai_livushka 78 指標 1小時前
Celtics blunders in the last two and a half minutes:
- Tatum travels
- Give up a wide, wide, wide open three to Dragic
- Inexplicably awful turnover from Smart

Marcus just can’t help himself at times. When he’s down he will just keep chucking.
[–]Celtics Zavehi 13 指標 1小時前
He can win games on his own at times with insane plays, and I always want him on the court. But when he isn’t hitting shots he almost doubles and triples down on himself at the detriment of the team.

Am I delusional or were both of those late Jimmy fouls all ball?

One was a legit offensive foul on Tatum before a clean strip
[–]Bulls BenjaminSwanklin 20 指標 1小時前
Jimmy literally has 3 perfect defensive plays (2 on Tatum and 1 on Kemba) in the final minutes of the game and they're ALL called as fouls. This is why the NBA isn't known for its defense anymore lmao. Soft as fuck foul calls.

I'll be honest, if celtics won i would've stayed off /r/nba cuz the heat would've totally been robbed, particularly off that tatum offensive non call that probably would've ended the game
[–]Celtics 6enericUsername 8 指標 1小時前
Tatum was awful in the first half.
Smart’s decisions were awful all game.
You’d think we could handle Herro but holy moly, have a day.
Refs tried to gift us the game but we blew it.
I don’t know what else we can do. Series feels over.

NBA is doing everything in their power to make this game unwatchable with these insane rules. This game was so unfun to watch. No flow or anything
[–]Thugging _inPublic 65 指標 1小時前
What's funny is that it was unwatchable because both teams could absolutely not score. Then the Heat start turning it on but the refs step right in to make it a free throw shooting contest which makes it go right back to being unwatchable.
