Jimmy Butler missed a late three-point try that would have given Miami the lead, and Boston almost failed in their fifth playoff run.

The Celtics, on the other hand, will face the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.

Ime Udoka, the Celtics’ coach, stated, “This is a typical Celtics triumph.”This year, we had a lot of challenges.

We’re a tough crew, and tonight seemed to be the start of our season.

We can’t manage to close the door and are forced to grind it out.”

The Celtics led by 17 points in the second quarter, but a fourth quarter burst helped Miami cut the lead to single digits on several occasions.

Following Butler’s missed three-point attempt, Boston’s Marcus Smart – who finished with 24 points and nine rebounds – hit two free throws to clinch the team’s long-awaited finals berth.

Jayson Tatum, the series MVP, led the Celtics with 26 points, 10 rebounds, and six assists, while Jaylen Brown added 24.

Tatum stated, ” “Few people believed in us on the path we went to get here.

We chose the most difficult path and it worked out.”
