    Do you remember this shot?
    Well the Celtics did the same thing but with the stakes being much higher.
    Boston comes back from 0-3 and secures a game 7 in the most insane way possible. And the final 2 minutes deserve a breakdown.
    Down by 7 at the end, Miami is fighting desperately here. But it was almost game over as Horford has the ball but gets it poked. And follow Jimmy here as he’s going to slip this screen for Robinson causing a split second hesitation by Smart enough for him to have enough space to fire away this shot and bring it within 4.
    Butler was just 3 for 19 up to this point, but when it matters the most he delivers.
    4 point game and Miami defends in a zone here. The Celtics find Horford in the middle and the great cut by Tatum to get the ball, but even better read by Bam to help on the drive, a great contest and the Heat have a real chance here with a 1:40 left. In transition you know who has the ball at the end of the game. And with Adebayo screening for Duncan, Horford has to be there with him so Jimmy sees that the paint is open so he barrels inside and gets 2 free throws, now this is where the real madness begins.
    Butler hits the first to make it a 3 point game but misses the second however watch Martin as he’s going to reposition while the ball is sitting on the rim and actually ends up with the rebound.
    He finds none other than the best shooter on the floor all alone for this shot and misses it. He was on fire the entire game. How did he miss this look? Had all the time in the world right here. The drama continues.
    Tatum wants the ball here and he’s going to set a screen to get a switch. Butler defends for the drive but Robinson fights over the screen and stays with White. You see that Tatum is open right here and the pass goes to him, Bam tries to contest but this is an open look. And at the same time watch Brown here who’s got an uncontested rebound. And on the miss he gets the ball and misses it but gets the foul call.
    Jaylen makes the first but misses the second allowing a transition opportunity for Miami. And again watch how dangerous Robinson is as he’s going to set a ghost screen fooling Smart and clearing the way for Jimmy to attack right at the basket and not only that but get a bucket and the foul. Unbelievable. It’s only a 1 point game with 50 seconds to go. And things are about to escalate here.
    The Heat staying in the zone and Tatum has the ball again, blows past Butler but Vincent follows that and steps in right here completely disrupting the drive and it’s a loose ball but JT recovers goes up for the shot but gets it blocked by Adebayo.
    A real flashback from that iconic block from the bubble. But let’s get back to the present day as that defensive stop opens up another transition opportunity and you see that the Celtics are scrambling with 2 guys pointing towards Robinson but nobody near him.
    He has another wide open look for the lead and misses again. Absolutely unreal. This would have given Miami a 2 point advantage in the closing seconds. Now they had to foul but got a bit lucky because Smart misses 1 free throw. And in a do or die situation Spoelstra asks Jimmy if he wants to go without a timeout and he confirms. A gutsy decision by a great coach.
    Back to the video for the crucial possession. You know who’s gonna take the last shot. And Tatum is on him. Bam goes to screen and is able to force a switch putting a slower Horford in front. But with 5 seconds remaining Jimmy is almost at the logo. Duncan clears the side and Butler goes to the corner for a desperation shot and gets fouled! He gets fouled and on the review we see that his feet are behind the line so it’s 3 shots for the win.
    He’s an 80% shooter from the line this postseason and with the NBA finals on the line, calmly knocks all three shots one by one.
    Which brings us to the ultimate chaos at the end. You see that Struss is guarding White on the inbounds but he’s faced the other way and traps Tatum here as Miami didn’t want him to take the shot. So the pass goes to Smart and as the shot goes up, White has the presence of mind to go inside for the rebound and Struss is trying to recover back to him but he’s trailing.
    So on the miss Derrick puts it back in but the buzzer sounds at the same time, so everyone is confused. Complete madness and disbelief in the arena as the refs are checking this frame by frame and we see that White was able to get it off with 1 tenth of a second remaining to force a game 7 and save his team from the brink of elimination in the craziest way possible.
    This instantly reminded me of the legendary Ray Allen shot that completely demoralized San Antonio in game 6 who were just moments from winning the championship. And we’ve heard the stories of how that postgame dinner looked like a funeral for the Spurs.
    Well this was the same thing in my opinion.

      On the shot by Smart why Bam Adebayo did not crash the boards he is very very overrated and why was #31 in the game for the heat u should have had your best defensive players on the floor poor game management by the heat coach

      You skipped right over the huge decisive mistake. The Horford foul (and the whistle) clearly occurred with less than 3 seconds left. The reffs' rounding up to 3 seconds (for no apparent reason) gave the Celtics just barely enough time for White's heroics.

    When Smart shot
    Tatum and Jimmy were around the 3pt line
    When his shot hit the rim
    Tatum was the first one in the air and closest to the rim
    Jimmy was an assistant referee watching the play like everyone else back at the 3pt line
    When that shot hit the rim
    ONLY celtics player Tatum and White were ready to jump and catch the rebound
    NO ONE from Miami was

      At that last ball I was like "who tf r u guarding? u r the tallest, there is just one rebound from the finals and you don't go take itttttttt"

    1. Nuggets can get their first chip.

    Regardless how this turns out this is history in the making and I'm all for it.

      ​@Chinquinostra Bambinocoming back 3-0 at the conference finals and winning a championship, the first for this group of Celtics player, and the 18th for the franchise to take back the lead as the most winning franchise in NBA history would be a historical run, the same way that LeBron coming back 3-1 in the Finals against the team with the best regular season record in NBA history was also a historical championship. We're witnessing a historical championship regardless of who ends up winning it all

      Let the hate flow thru you my friend!! Now that the Heat have choked away a 3-0 series lead it’s hilarious how MOST of their fans(not all) have now started the excuses n hedging.. “refs r cheating for BOS” “BOS shouldn’t have ever allowed an 8 seed to win 3 games” but immediately after Gm 3 ya’lls tones and bullet points were the polar opposite cuz u knew that “heatculture” could never be the one team to choke away a 3-0 series lead in NBA history.. I honestly do feel kinda bad for the level headed Heat fans out there but not the ones who were dancing on the Celtics graves after Gm 3 but once adversity hits their energy does a 180 n they start grasping at anything the can to explain away the heat losing rather than just taking ur L’s w some dignity.. Heat had their chances to pull out the series win but it’s a wrap now, Celtics win by 20+ on Monday night

  • 3rdEye
    3rdEye 4 months ago +104

    What cost the Heat much more was vanishing since gaining a 3-0 lead and deciding they would not show up for 4, 5 and 6. Now its more than likely they're gonna make history and be the only team to turn over a 3-0 lead.

    • TheExclusiveOne720
      TheExclusiveOne720 4 months ago +3

      that didn't cost the Heat although that appears to be so obvious, the NBA script is why they've blown a 3-1 lead

    That Ray Allen's shi was crazy. Presence of mind to start back to the 3pt line even b4 rbd was fully secured. Backpedaled - dont underestimate why that was so critical. Found the line & got precisely behind it (nets fans i apologize). The insanely hard part of making that pressure shot was the easiest part of this sequence. Wow.

    • Frank Feng
      Frank Feng 4 months ago +3

      That's why if I was a coach, I'd let Ray Allen instead of Steph Curry take the last shot, not only because of his higher clutch FG%, but also his height, his shooting form, his catch and shoot awareness.

    Everybody was saying the basketball bouncing in white’s direction was the ONLY was the Celtics could score.But they fail to realize that Tatum was crashing the boards as well and if the ball bounced in his direction he also would’ve had a putback opportunity.

    In these types of inbound situations with 3 ticks left the inbound player is almost never defended. The Heat got what they wanted and that was to keep Tatum from receiving the inbound and a low percentage 3pt shot. Problem is Strus has to understand that after the double team on Tatum he needs to turn around and track down the inbound passer (White) who charged to the basket and got the put back.

    • grandcanyon2
      grandcanyon2 4 months ago

      strus cost them the game this dude literally paused for a second and is looking up at the shot instead of hustling and running to the rim and he was out of position. number 31 was lazy getting back and it cost them the game. I tell folks in any team sport it is mostly always the lesser skilled players making the biggest mistakes to cost the game.

    That's literally the end of the Heat season. The only reason they were up 3-0 in the first place was because the Celtics were shooting too much 3s to the point where most of their players had no momentum and had a lot more misses than makes. All they had to do was pass more, more aggressiveness, taking better shots, put Brogdon out of the rotation, had the Celtics done this sooner they would've won this series in 5 or 6. GGs Celtics for back to back NBA Finals.

      You guys forgot that the refs started cheating the Heat in game 4. The refs had Celtics in the Bonus in game 4 first quarter. The refs had the Celtics in the bonus in the first quarter in game 6. Scot Foster was one of the referees in game 4. Right when the Lakers were eliminated he caught a flight from LA to Miami to extend the series. Which he did.

      RIPSENSE 4 months ago

      that’s the same reason the celtics even won their other 2 games. celtics are gonna choke this game 7 by shooting themselves out of it and on top of that jimmy is gonna be aggressive and stop using the pump fake and he’s gonna cook them in the paint by going straight up.

    J. Dazz 4 months ago +8

    So many mixed feelings after this game. It's incredible that we had a shot at winning with Bam and Jimmy playing their worst games of the series. But damn, I really felt sick after we let White run unimpeded to the rim for the putback. Like, we're supposed to be known for our grit and hustle, and we just f*** up our chance to move on to the finals like that? Martin and Vincent were stellar which is always great to see, and Robinson really got us back in to this game in the 4th, but come on man, you can't give us at least one of those wide open 3's? What a rollercoaster, instant classic for me even though my team was on the wrong side of the result 😢

    Well, good golly gosh, folks! What a game we had last night! As a diehard Celtics fan, I thought my heart was going to leap out of my chest and perform its own game-winning dunk with only 0.1 seconds left on the clock. My entire cardiovascular system practically turned into a cheerleader as I watched Derrick White snag that last basket, making every Celtics fan leap in joy while the Heat fans were left applying cold compress to soothe their burnt hopes. I tell ya, folks, it was so electrifying, my pacemaker asked for overtime pay!
    This game gave me every reason to stay glued to my screen despite my already high blood pressure. I mean, Game 7 is on Monday, but I'm already satiated with the cutthroat competitiveness we've been witnessing so far. If I survive till Monday, it would be an unexpected but pleasant bonus.
    Now, as for the Miami Heat, their loss was as painful as stepping on a Lego. That's right, folks, a 3D, full-scale version of Lego, barefoot! Adebayo and Butler seemed to be struggling, like kids trying to solve a Rubik's cube in the dark. I'm talking 35 points combined on 9-of-37 (24.3 percent) shooting from the field kind of struggling. It was almost as if they were trying to make modern art with their performance, one that screams inefficiency.
    Heat Check, you know that Clip-Share channel I'm always telling you about? The one with all the basketball analysis and breakdowns? They can't get enough of the Golden State Warriors. If the Warriors were a pizza, Heat Check would be the teenager at a party who has already had three slices but still has his eyes on the last piece. But as we all know, their analysis of the Warriors always feels as biased as a mom judging a cuteness contest with her kid participating in it. Now, that's what I call "Heat Check's Golden Love Affair"!
    After a fantastic and heart-stopping game, we saw some of the Heat players storm off the court with faces redder than a sunburnt lobster. But Butler assures us he will be better. A lesson to all of us - never promise what you can't deliver, especially not in a Game 7, folks!
    I must admit, I respect Coach Spoelstra’s optimism, though. It's like he's Captain of the Titanic and instead of shouting "We're sinking!" he's saying, "We've always wanted an indoor pool!" You've got to appreciate that kind of spirit. After all, life’s too short to dwell on the miseries, right?
    All in all, folks, no matter what happens in Game 7, we've already witnessed one hell of a series. And as a Celtics fan, I feel like I've already won the lottery. Twice! So, let's strap ourselves in for Monday's showdown. I just hope my heart can handle it! After all, it's the reason why we love basketball: the thrills, the spills, and the near heart attacks. You can't beat it. Well, maybe with a defibrillator.

    It's understandable, as Spoelstra said in the post game, that the primary goal for the Heat on Boston's final possession was to keep the ball out of Tatum's hands. So, Strus not guarding the entry pass by White did result in a soft double team of Tatum as White inbounded the ball to Smart. Mission accomplished by the Heat, initially, by denying Tatum the ball. However, whenever you decide to allow an inbound pass to be made, completely uncontested, you are always taking a risk. By not having Strus trying to contest White's entry pass, there was virtually no chance of a deflection or turnover and after he inbounded the ball, White continued to be "free and clear" to streak to the rim. White even had an opportunity to receive a pass from Smart and take an uncontested shot, if Smart decided to not take his shot and instead passed to White, while White was still on the perimeter. It's always a calculated risk to not contest the entry pass and then to allow that player to "roam free", completely unguarded.

    As a Spurs fan, I love to see D. White make both one of the most spectacular and fundamentally sound plays I've seen in a long time.
    Who's the most dangerous man on an inbounds play? Say it with me...THE INBOUNDER! The fundamentals still matter. Go for the rebound, box out, don't focus on the star so much that you forget about the "others".

      William Evans 4 months ago +3

      Yes indeed, THE INBOUNDER!! THE INBOUNDER!! Basketball 101.. NO ONE was guarding Derrick White, which allowed him to make a totally uncontested pass to Smarty for the "indirect" game-winning shot.. I guess Max Strus was instructed to trap/double team Jayson Tatum (instead of harassing the inbounder), which created ALL KINDS OF SPACE for D. White to make an easy pass.. Are you kidding me? What kind of defensive strategy is that in a Conference Finals game? THEN, if that bird-brain decision wasn't bad enough ----- D. White cuts to the hole WITH NO ONE GUARDING HIM, and volleyballs the rebound back in with 0.1 seconds left on the clock.. Max Strus is TRAILING the play (naturally), and no other Heat player is within MILES of Derrick White.. Game over.. The lack of fundamental execution in the "modern day NBA" is appalling to me.. It's like a f____ing epidemic!! Take your pick.. Man to man defense, low post defense, weak-side help defense, transition defense, boxing out for rebounds, following your shot to the rim (NO ONE does this anymore), switching on heavy screens, going "over or under" lighter screens, illegal moving screens (all the time), carrying or palming the ball off the dribble, etc.. Don't get me started about the current style of play and officiating in "The League.." As Kobe Bryant used to say: "I like old school 'smash-mouth' NBA basketball.. Damn all this other BS.." In sports, if you want to win consistently ----- your FUNDAMENTALS better be in order!! Otherwise, you ain't gonna win very much..

  • Daemon Targaryen
    Daemon Targaryen 4 months ago +2

    Kudos needs to finally go to Mazzulla. Stayed positive and steady. A shot like that usually devastates the loser of the game. Go back to the 2004 and 2013 Spurs. Would proceed to lose their next game. Celtics were lucky 0.9 was added back on the clock which they needed every single millisecond of that.
    *White* Hot 2023 Playoffs, huh? Ray Allen left Boston to hit a shot to save Miami. Derrick White, a former Spur, returns the favor to the Heat and helped saved the Celtics' season. The 2013 Boston/San Antonio/Miami karma reaches full circle. The Celtics still cannot get comfortable. If they lose tomorrow, Game 6 was all for naught. Blew an 11-pt lead within 3 minutes. Are only 5-5 at home in these playoffs.
    Max Strus messed up but anybody can make that same mistake. Nobody pays attention to the inbound passer. He didn't pay attention to Derrick for 1 second and it cost him the box out. It wasn't like Caleb Martin was boxing out either as he stood there and watched. If the ball bounces the opposite direction, Tatum might have had the putback.
    Miami didn't really deserve to win Game 6. They were behind for most of the game. Butler played as badly as he did those first 46 minutes of the game. Celtics were proving they were clearly the better team. Celtics showed this in Game 4, 5, and 6 and Game 1 and 2 weren't blowouts. Only Game 3 was when they looked clearly defeated and looked like they quit.
    I'm happy the most for BLAKE GRIFFIN. He was cheering his team on after Game 4 with hope still in his face. He doesn't play but tries to stay positive throughout. If Blake wins a ring with Boston, he can retire right afterwards and return to Hollywood to produce movies. Blake got drafted by the unluckiest franchise to end his career with the luckiest one 🍀.
    The knock on the Celtics is their inability to close games. Brown and Smart missed critical FTs. Had they made them, they wouldn't need that miracle bounce to Derrick. Tatum needs to watch LeBron and stop taking too many damn threes. Take mid-range shots or drive for layups. The 3-pt jacking can kill these Celtics because when they get cold, they can stay really cold like Boston's climate.
    You must win tomorrow, Boston. I'm giving you guys a 70/30 favoritism. But that 30% from Miami can feel like 90% at times because Jimmy did get rolling late that put Miami up by 1. It might take a miracle shot from Miami to repay what happened to them in Game 6.
    That's the luckiest bounce I've ever seen. More lucky than Kawhi's 2019. More miraculous than Fisher's 0.4 and Ray Allen's 2013 that only put it to overtime. When White touched the ball, only 0.2 left. When it left his hand, only 0.1. Imagine an ECF series and Finals matchup decided by one-tenth of a second?
    The basketball gods seems like they want to bless the Celtics this year. But it may not matter if they don't win Game 7. It might only be a miracle shot to play another home game. Series is far from over. Boston is not a great team at home while trying to eliminate a team that first time.
    Bizarro series indeed, Brian Windhorst. Nobody really knows WTF will happen tomorrow? I did not even know WTF I saw last night after about 30 seconds. Both teams are inconsistent. The Game 6 finish was so wild, Skip Bayless admitted he was getting into a fight with Ernestine! Did you see Jake Paul's reaction? Reminded me of myself after I thought Maximum Security won the 2019 Kentucky Derby.
    Vegas must hate both teams because neither one you can rely on wagering. You really don't know what to expect any more. But it's been an entertaining series. The best one of this year and perhaps since the 2013 Finals. Probably an all-time ECF classic and the most miraculous buzzer-beater shot in basketball history. Not just for NBA history but for all of basketball history. The one-tenth buzzer-beater.
    I think if Boston pulls this off, I know Denver had 9 days off but they might get nervous for Game 1 in Boston. The 1991 Bulls and 1993 Suns lost Game 1 of the Finals and the excuse was they were nervous. If Denver plays Game 1 at home, the crowd will give them confidence.
    Former players from the 2004 Red Sox and 2016 Patriots should be an attendance tomorrow to give the Celtics some luck. Let's see Tom Brady, David Ortiz, and Kevin Millar there. Let's see Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, and Mark Wahlberg there. Bring Jeter and A-Rod too! 🤣 Bring Kyle Shanahan!
    Another Boston miracle could be upon us. Time to witness history. When something in sports hasn't happened, it will eventually happen. Might finally happen tomorrow night. Paul Pierce after Game 2 predicted Celtics in 7. No wonder he's called The Truth.

    3. The Boston Celtics will have homecourt which neutralizes the mile high city altitude.
    4. Makes the Denver Nuggets work a little bit for the championship ring. In the end, I want Denver to get its first ring. Boston already has too many.
    Oh, and one more thing, I want Spoelstra fired and in San Antonio for the old man Popovich, Kerr in Miami, Rivers in San Francisco, makes the coaching carousel more of a comedy series.

    There was 0.1 seconds left for that shot BECAUSE the clock was started LATE. The clock is stuck at 3 seconds while the inbound pass is made and even while Smart pivots before shooting. The clock hits 2.9 as Smart is lining up to shoot - likely 0.2-0.3 seconds late.

      ​​@Genghis Khan you explaining the sequence, we are hoping an expert come to explain the resetting time rule, jimmy fouled at 2.1 and the timer stopped when the challenge called, would the expert care to explain the rule instead of what happening cuz we all already know mazzulla challenged and the time reset. I mean if you wanna talk about the skies are blue, then all people are expert in that lol.

      As a neutral fan the refs were making debatable calls all game, especially in the 4th. Calls seemed to be favoring Celtics. Something seemed off. And you’re right its bizarre how the time extended to 3 seconds, that alone saved the game.

    Jimmy Butler was on Fire when the game was on the line , he took over those last 2 minutes , but Twice I guess it was Robinson missed 2 big 3’s under pressure, ain’t no way Jimmy wasn’t passing to anyone on Miamis last drive , he had to get it done and not leave it up to chance…
    Boston miraculous play to win it was nothing short of remarkable , but so was that surge at the end by Miami trying to close it, but ya know unfortunately has me thinking , if Jimmy would have played iso top of the key an extra one or two of those last possessions instead of his non superstar teammates chuckin up some bricks , they’d have probably completed the comeback.
    This what people criticize Lebron for , cause he’ll leave the game up to his teammates who have no Buisness taking those big moment shots while one of the best players of all time is also on the court , it doesn’t make sense. At least the one 3 in this game was a wide open look that you had to take no matter who it was , but yea watching Jimmy in those last 4 minutes gave me flashbacks of Kobe, winning in spite of having no help.

      You're somehow forgetting they kept giving Jimmy the ball all game and he was playing like trash shooting nuttin but bricks or free throws. He was actually a liability out there. Duncan at least kept them in the game.

      @AmandaabnamA You right Jimmy was supposed to show in the 1st,2nd, and 3rd quarter. He waited till the last minutes to come back which was a bad idea. Heat needs to start the first quarter with 10 points lead which will put a lot of pressure on the Celtics. Heat keep letting the Celtics gets the lead. Heat should tight there defense in the 1st,2nd and 3rd quarter. I forgot the refs had the Celtics in the bonus in the 1st quarter and the Heat were scared to defend them.

    now is so hard to predict if heats or the celtics would be the one proceeding to the final, at first i was thinking it would be the end for celtics as they were 0-3 with heats n when game 4 came they redeem themselves by winning game 4 n make it 1-3

    Spo needs alot of blame for that final possession
    Then Bam and jimmy.
    Spo didnt stress how important the rebound was in that possession.
    They team was only thinking about getting 1 stop.
    They should have been told to play the possession like they were down 1pt and needed a stop and rebound to win.
    Bam decided not to attack the rebound. Something that he has Not been doing. Watching the rebound or waiting for it.
    Jimmy was watching the shot and let tatum run to the rim for the rebound.
    If the ball didnt go to whites side of the rim.
    Tatum would have had it and the heat would have lost anyway..
    Unbelievable... The leaders of the team blew that one

    Do you think Jimmy double dribbled on that final play? I’ve seen the argument horford fouls and doesn’t get called but if that’s true then Jimmy would only get two free throws not three

    The problem was coaching! The inbounds pass should have been guarded by a tall player like love and also the inbounder was allowed to freely run to the rim which allowed that layup for the win! You always guard the inbounder and crash the rim when time is running out.

    If the Heat are going to pull off a win in Boston, Jimmy and Bam can't shoot themselves into a hole like they did last night. Gonna need their main men to be the main men.

    🤦‍♂️Spo says he doesn’t know how Miami gonna do it but Miami will get it done. Sounds like Clippers’ Ty Lue when with 3/4 of the season over he said he was still trying to figure things out but not worries cuz he would eventually figure it out!

    Robinson / Miami had 18 sec on the clock in their hands and they decide to shoot a 3 instead of driving the ball or setting up a play. If there’s anyone to blame is Robinson. He should get traded next season or send to Shanghai Knights.

    • george marco
      george marco 4 months ago

      when robinson took the three it was about 28 secs left, plenty of time with a time out left. he was open and tried to make it a two possessions game for the heat. and as you saw heat got time to even take the lead. and this play was infront heats bench, spo could ask him to stop. so, robinson i think will be there next season too

    They can win if they learn how to box out and grab some boards. Also, don't let Robinson shoot when it really counts 😊

    Duncan Robinson cost the Heat that game late, two good looks on 3's which he clanked..
    The 2nd three wasn't even necessary, it would have been a dagger to the Celtics if it went in but it wasn't necessary at that point...
