‘Reverse sweep NO’ Miami beats Boston, ‘final in 3 years’
The team that laughed in the Eastern Conference Finals, which went from 3 wins and 3 losses to 3 wins and 3 losses, was the Miami Heat. Miami became the 151st team out of 151 occasions.
Miami held Game 7 of the 2022-23 season NBA Eastern Conference against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts on the 30th (hereinafter Korean time).
On this day, Miami won 103-84 after being ahead of Boston from the beginning of the game. A huge win in the 7th game away from TD Garden.
As a result, Miami recorded a series record of 4 wins and 3 losses, confirming its 7th overall and advancing to the finals for the first time in 3 years since 2020.
In Miami, Jimmy Butler played an active role with 28 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists and 3 steals, and Caleb Martin also showed good form with 26 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists.
On the other hand, Boston was disappointed with Jaylen Brown only succeeding in 1 out of 9 3-point shots, and eventually had to wait for Miami to advance to the finals at the home stadium.
Accordingly, Miami continued the tradition of 150 teams that led the NBA with 3 wins and no losses in 4 best 7 games. The 151st win of a 3-win undefeated team.
Miami was on the verge of a reverse sweep for the first time in NBA history after leading with a 3-win and undefeated lead, but continued the tradition with an away victory at TD Garden.
The protagonist of the victory is, of course, Butler. Miami finished the second quarter with a score of 52-41, and Butler continued the lead in the third quarter by making a series of three-pointers.
Then, Miami tied Boston scoreless in the first two minutes of the fourth quarter, 76-66, widening the gap to 17 points. Miami’s victory was virtually decided at this time.안전놀이터
