- May 20, 2023 08:26Final: CEL 105-111 MIA
Miami Heat have taken two wins on the road! Who would have thought that? A 2-0 lead heading to Miami. Jimmy ‘Freaking’ Butler with his 27 points was the game changer again. He got help from Caleb Martin and Bam Adebayo too today.
Celtics looked like getting their groove back. Tatum was back to his scoring best and coach Mazzulla deployed the pick and roll. The bench too gave points today but that proved insufficient.
That’s all for this game. We will be back as Miami moves on the verge of winning against the second seed, perhaps even sweeping the series. Cheers!
