Let's just put this series out of its misery, please.
Boston has now won and covered in back-to-back games, sitting just a win away from a trip to the NBA Finals for the first time in 12 years.
Only one game this entire series has ended with a score within single digits, and with a roller coaster of injuries and poor performances between the two organizations, it's been massively hard to predict anything the entire way through.
Boston is the better team, though, and the Celtics look poised to extinguish the Heat.
The Celtics shot just 33 percent from 3 last game, but it was far worse for Miami. The Heat shot a miserable 15.6 percent from long range, with Max Strus going 0-for-7, Duncan Robinson just 3-for-10, and Gabe Vincent 1-for-7. These are some of Miami's best from the outside, and when the shots aren't falling for them, they're in big trouble.
The big turn of events came in the third quarter, though, where Miami's 42-37 lead at the half was eviscerated when they were outscored 32-16 by the Celtics.
Boston has now covered in five of their last seven playoff games, but hasn't won three straight since their opening-round sweep of the Nets. Jimmy Butler's health will be one of the biggest factors in this, as he looks completely worn out with his knee issue.
The Heat can't win without a big game from Butler, and nothing has shown us over the last couple of games that he's gotten any healthier. I like the Celtics to close this thing out tonight with a cover given the fall off from Miami.
