3 Things We Learned From Heat-Celtics Eastern Conference Finals Game 3 On Saturday

Both the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics are two of the better defensive teams in the entire league, but they seemed to have had some issues with each other in two games of this series of Eastern Conference Finals.

In Game 1, the Heat dismantled the Celtics’ defense and got nearly every shot they wanted in a 118-107 win. However, in Game 2 the script was reversed and the Celtics defeated the Heat, beating them 127-102 to level the series 1-1.

Heading into Game 3, it seemed like the Celtics had the momentum of a Game 2 road win, but Miami came out in the first quarter and immediately started with a 24-7 run to open the game, grabbing a 39 -18 lead at the end of the first. At halftime, the Heat led by 15 points.
