The Miami Heat have advanced to the NBA finals for the first time since 2014. They outplayed the Boston Celtics for the entire series with a complete team effort. The final game in the series was an absolute blood bath until the fourth quarter.

In the last nine minutes of the game, the Heat outscored the Boston Celtics 35-17. It was the final nail in the coffin for the Celtics as they failed to make the NBA finals once again.

From the Miami Heat, Jimmy Butler will be heading to his first-ever NBA finals. While he played well in the decisive Game 6, it was Bam Adebayo who was the star of the show for the Heat. Bam finished the game with 32 points on shooting 73.3% from the field.

Rookie Tyler Herro also had another clutch fourth-quarter performance in the books. Herro scored 10 of his 19 points in the final quarter. Herro has become quite the player for the Heat in this postseason run.

Following the victory, Twitter blew up with hearty congratulations and praise for the gritty Heat team.

The Miami Heat will now be facing heavy championship favorites, the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA Finals. It will be a reunion with their ex-superstar LeBron James, who left the Heat six years ago.

This has been a Cinderella run by Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat. When Butler signed with the Heat, many were skeptical of his decision, but at the end of the day, it paid off well. Now, only the LA Lakers stand in Heat’s quest for the NBA title.

While the Heat have been nothing but amazing in this postseason run, the Lakers are a tough team to beat. The star duo of LeBron James and Anthony will have the Heat’s defenders’ hands full in the entire series.
