Once again, the Miami Heat found themselves trailing by double-digits. And yes, the Heat fought back in the end, even cutting the lead to five late in the fourth quarter. But this time the Boston Celtics closed the game.
It shouldn’t have been 3-1. They had no business winning this series. Somehow, someway, the Denver Nuggets pulled it off. Their second straight series win off going down 3-1. Oh, by the way, that has NEVER been done before.
Everyone knew coming into the series that this was going to be a dogfight. The Boston Celtics threw the first punch and had a double-digit lead to start the game. Instead of putting their heads down, the Miami Heat kept fighting. They overcame a 13 point deficit in the first period and a 14-point deficit in the fourth period.
