Celtics vs Heat
- When: Tuesday, May 23, 2023 at 8:30 p.m ET
- Where: Kaseya Center, Miami, Florida
- Channel: TNT
The Miami Heat lead the Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Celtics 3-0. They won both of the games played at TD Garden, which is something not many other teams have achieved, at least not in recent times.
The Heat won the two games in Boston mostly thanks to a vintage performance of Jimmy Butler. In Game 1, he scored 35 points, and in the second game, he put away 27.
Then, in the third duel of the finals, he had a quiet game. We saw Butler score just 16 points, which may not seem too great. However, there’s an explanation – the 33-year-old spent just 31:20 minutes on the court.
In the previous two games, he was on the floor for 40+ minutes each time. We think he’s gonna get a lot of play time this evening, which is why it’s only logical to assume we’ll see Butler score a lot.
