The Miami Heat have their proverbial back against the wall as the team makes final preparations for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Celtics.
It’s a spot that not many believed they would be in, but the Boston Celtics are just one win away from the NBA Finals.
Everyone knows that Miami Heat superstar LeBron James is the single most important star the team has to have on the floor. But it might surprise you who the second most important player the team needs on the floor to be successful.
The Boston Celtics nearly let Game 4 slip away, but held on to tie the Eastern Conference Finals at 2-2 as they head back to Miami for Tuesday night’s Game 5.
Before the Celtics took Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals Sunday night, evening the series at two games apiece, point guard Rajon Rondo took a shot at the Miami Heat.
The Boston Celtics and Miami Heat needed overtime to decide Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals, but each of the teams had star players watching the deciding minutes from the bench.
It is looking like Miami Heat Big 3 will be intact for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals Tuesday night.
The Celtics’ big lead gone and leading scorer along with it, Rajon Rondo had a message for Kevin Garnett. “It’s time,” Rondo said. “We have to take the game over.”
Kevin Garnett had 24 points and 11 rebounds and Rajon Rondo scored 21 points with 10 assists to lead the Boston Celtics to a 101-91 victory over the Heat in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals on Friday night, cutting Miami’s lead in the series to 2-1.
It’s not a Game 7, but for the Boston Celtics, Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Miami Heat may be just as big. The Celtics know they need to leave it all on the floor and pull out a win Friday or else the series is likely over.
