The NBA’s ‘8th seed’ Miami Heat’s playoff blast is likely to engulf Boston as well.
Miami won 128-102 in Game 3 of the 2022-23 NBA Eastern Conference Finals (4 wins from 7 matches) against the Boston Celtics held at the Kaseya Center in Florida on the 22nd (Korean time).

The protagonists of the victory on this day were Gabe Vincent and Duncan Robinson from Undraft (unknown). The two players broke Boston’s defense by making 11 of 16 3-pointers in Game 3. The combined score of Vincent (29 points) and Robinson (22 points) is 51 points. The two players ranked 1st and 2nd for the most points scored on the team side by side on the day.
Accordingly, Statmuse, a media specializing in recording, shed light on the records of Boston’s ‘one-two punch’ Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Tatum and Brown, who were from the third overall draft, played a big role this season by climbing to the NBA ALL First Team and Second Team, respectively. However, in the third game on this day, they only scored 26 points. Of the 14 3-pointers both players threw, only one went through the rim.
Especially,먹튀검증 ‘Ace’ Tatum’s sluggishness in this series is painful. Tatum still had 0 field goals in the 4th quarter, the place of victory during the 3 conference finals. He did not play the 4th quarter in the 3rd game as the game was already on the decline, but he remained silent in the previous game 1 and 2.

In the second round, they defeated 5th seed New York 4-2 and settled in the conference finals. Miami also drove second-seeded Boston to the brink, giving it a chance to advance to the NBA Finals for the first time in three years. Miami hasn’t won a championship since 2013 with the past ‘Big 3’ (LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh). In 2020, he had to be content with a runner-up finish behind the Los Angeles (LA) Lakers.
