Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals finds the Boston Celtics facing a must-win situation as they lost back to back games to the Miami Heat who are up 2-0 in the series.
Similarly to Game 1, the Celtics took a double-digit lead, lost it, and weren’t the aggressors at game end. After the match, Marcus Smart went on an angry rampage in the locker room with Jaylen Brown rumored as the most vocal responder.
Later, Smart, Brown, Jayson Tatum, and Kemba Walker met with coach Brad Stevens to get on the same page regarding plans to move forward in the series.
The young duo of Tatum and Brown each scored 21 points while Smart (14) was the only other double-digit point contributor. Not one Celtic grabbed double-digit rebounds or assists.
Javonte Green who has been out since Game 2 of the 76ers series is listed as probable while the big news was Gordon Hayward was upgraded to questionable and Romeo Langford who played barely 90 seconds in Game 2 is out with an abductor strain.
By virtue of coming back to win Game 2, the Heat have only lost a single game in the playoffs with a record of 10-1.
Despite falling behind again in the second game by as much as 17 points and again later in the closing minutes Miami led by Jimmy Butler fought back to erase the deficit and win in clutch time.
Butler only scored 14 points but his effort was on full display particularly at the game end when he collected two of his four steals.
Goran Dragic’s hot streak continued leading the Heat with 25 points. Game 1’s hero Bam Adebayo once again filled up the stat sheet with a double-double of 21 points and 10 rebounds along with four assists, two steals, and a block.
Youngsters Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson provided key contributions with the rookie scoring 12 points and grabbing nine rebounds while Robinson hit six 3-pointers for 18 points.

Free Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
Diving into the numbers the Celtics shot better both from the field and distance. The key to the loss was the 20 turnovers that resulted in 26 points for the Heat.
