Last night's Miami/Boston game. If you were shooting over 50% inside the arc and were shooting 4 for 22 outside the arc wouldn't you quite jacking-up 3's?

Boston didn't. They ended-up hitting 9 of 42 3's and losing by 19.
The shots were terrible too. They had absolutely no ball movement, Jaylen Brown just stood in one place if he didn't have the ball. The only guy that came to play was White.

If anything, that game showed just how good Tatum is.

True. Wonder what the outcome would have been if Tatum din't get hurt on the 1st play of the game.

"It was just frustrating that I was ... a shell of myself," Tatum said after he played 42 minutes and finished with 14 points on 5-for-13 shooting in the loss, which ended the Celtics' season and also denied them the chance to become the first team in NBA history to overcome a 3-0 series deficit."

"It was tough to move. Just frustrating, it happening on the first play."

There was much for the Celtics to be frustrated about, beginning with Tatum having the bad luck of landing on Heat guard Gabe Vincent on the first possession of the game. But that was far from the only thing.

The Celtics followed up their worst 3-point-shooting game of the season (7-for-35) in Game 6 by shooting 9-for-42 in Game 7 to equal their second-worst shooting performance of the season. Boston played seven games this season in which it shot under 26% from 3-point range, and Game 6 was the only one the Celtics came away from with a win...

Denver beat Miami in Miami last night 109-94. They're now up 2-1 with Game 4 in Miami Friday night and Game 5 back in Denver on Monday night.

Game 2 was a mirage for the Heat. They shot 48.6% from 3. If they shoot a very good 40% from 3, they lose by 6.

Denver gets their first NBA title and at home, by beating Miami 94-89. Jimmy Butler, who didn't show-up for the first 3 quarters had a monster 4th almost sending the series back to Miami but it wasn't to be.

"In a rock-fight of a Game 5, the Denver Nuggets reached the NBA mountaintop from the foothills of the Rockies, winning their first-ever championship and setting Nikola Jokic's legacy as an all-timer in stone.

Battling foul trouble and a Miami Heat team that refused to die, Jokic amassed 28 points, 16 rebounds and four assists in a 94-89 victory, capturing the Finals MVP to conclude a historic run for him and his team.

With the Nuggets leading by seven and the Heat on a five-minute scoring drought, Jimmy Butler scored 13 straight points for Miami, bringing his zombie team back from the dead and taking a 99-98 lead into the final two minutes. A Bruce Brown put-back returned the lead to Denver, and Butler's turnover with 27.4 seconds left gifted the Nuggets a chance to finally put the eighth-seeded Eastern Conference champions away. Denver, 9-for-19 from the line at the time, made four straight free throws down the stretch to win it..

Good for Denver!!!

Here's hoping the Vegas Golden Knights can manage to close things out Tuesday night and win the franchise's first Stanley Cup ever. Lord knows, the Vegas fans have been a tortured fan base, waiting SIX LONG YEARS for a major championship title.
