The Eastern Conference Finals will almost certainly culminate in
Boston's return to TD Garden, thanks to Boston's domination in a tough victory.
In the third quarter, the Celtics outscored Miami 32–16, slashing their turnovers in half.
In the second half, Jaylen Brown scored 13 points and hit five of his six shots in the last 12
minutes. After the first quarter, Miami led 19–17, and the Heat led 42–37 at halftime. This series
should be put on hold by the NBA. The Celtics will return home, and the series is expected to
conclude on Friday. Despite only losing two quarters in the first three games, Boston trailed 2–1.
The Heat, as good as they are defensively, lack the firepower to overcome an ordinary defense.
