Miami Heat Win Game 3 In Boston, Lead Series 2-1

heat vs celtics

The Miami Heat stormed out to a 26-point lead over the Boston Celtics in Game 3 on Saturday night only to hold on for a 109-103 victory at TD Garden following a furious rally from the home team during the second half after Jimmy Butler had been ruled out of the game with knee inflammation.

In the end, Butler’s absence during the final two quarters was not enough for Boston to pull off the comeback as Bam Adebayo finished the win with a team-high 31 points to go along with 10 rebounds, six assists and four steals.

On the other end of the spectrum, Jaylen Brown was fantastic for Boston finishing the game with 40 points and nine rebounds. While Al Horford and Marcus Smart combined for 36 points, 18 rebounds and 10 assists, the Celtics were unable to overcome a poor shooting night from Jayson Tatum as the All-Star struggled mightily from the field finishing just 3-for-14 for the night. Game 4 is Monday night at TD Garden.
