It comes to the do-or-die game: Celtics marvel at Butler's crazy NBA show

What a spectacular series: The Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat are fighting for a place in the NBA finals - and they have to face the ultimate showdown. Superstar Jimmy Butler forces do-or-die play even though the heats are trailing near the end.

On the way to the NBA finals, the Miami Heat forced a decider in a duel with the Boston Celtics for national player Daniel Theis. The team led by Jimmy Butler, who was outstanding with 47 points, scored 111:103 in Boston on Friday evening and thus tied the series to 3:3. The decision on who will play against the Golden State Warriors for the NBA title will now be made in Miami on Sunday.

"My team believes in me so much, my coaches too, they give me the confidence to just go out there and play basketball," said Superstar Butler on US television, who also has eight assists, nine rebounds and four stolen balls came. According to the US broadcaster ESPN, he has never had better values ​​​​in the playoffs.

Jayson Tatum was the top pitcher for the Celtics with 30 points. Theis was not used. Although the Celtics regained the lead at 97-94 with less than five minutes to go, the Heat stayed focused in the noisy TD Garden and clinched the win. It would be Miami's first final since losing to the Los Angeles Lakers two years ago, and the Celtics haven't been in the finals since 2010. Together with the Lakers, the Celtics hold the record with 17 titles in the NBA so far.

Meanwhile, according to media reports, the Los Angeles Lakers have found a new head coach. As reported by ESPN and the "Los Angeles Times", among others, Darvin Ham should ensure that the team around superstar LeBron James is at least close to the 18th championship in the coming season. The 48-year-old Ham has been an assistant coach with the Milwaukee Bucks, who won the championship last season, since 2018. It's Ham's first job as head coach in the NBA.

The Lakers initially did not comment themselves – James, on the other hand, made his enthusiasm about the decision public in a tweet. Ham was an assistant coach with the Lakers from 2011 to 2013 and then joined the Atlanta Hawks coaching staff. He will succeed Frank Vogel in Los Angeles, who was fired after the disappointing performance and missing the playoffs. As a player, Ham won the 2004 championship with the Detroit Pistons. According to the AP news agency, he is the 15th black coach in the NBA. There has never been more at the same time in the history of the league.
