It’s official Roommates! The Boston Celtics beat the Miami Heat in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals with a score of 100-96. This means that the Boston Celtics will go head-to-head against the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals beginning next month.
For the first time in 12 years, the Boston Celtics are heading back to the NBA Finals after defeating the Miami Heat in the seventh game of the Eastern Conference Finals courtesy of a final score of 100-96. The game was highlighted by star player Jayson Tatum, who led the game with 26 points, and he (along with his teammates) will face off against the Golden State Warriors for the 2022 NBA Finals, beginning with Game 1 June 2nd in San Francisco.
It was a close game from the very start, as the Boston Celtics were ready every time the Miami Heat headed for the basket. This was the third game in a row where the Celtics beat the Heat on the road.
There’s also a historical element to tonight’s win, as Ime Udoka becomes the first rookie head coach in NBA history to win multiple Game 7s—dating back to when the Boston Celtics beat the Milwaukee Bucks 109-81 in Game 7 earlier in the Eastern Conference semi-finals.
This NBA Finals match-up is sure to have basketball fans glued to every moment, as two of the league’s best teams face-off in a series that many have been waiting for.
