If the Heat want to win the East, they need to win today in Miami. They lead the series 3-2.

It's going to be hard to win a game 7 in Boston.

Caleb Martin has been productive for the Heat in this series.

Boston is so weird, I could see them winning tonight and then totally crap the bed in game 7.

Anything can happen but if the Celtics win tonight, momentum is a hard thing to stop.

Jimmy Butler has picked a bad game to be off.

Butler is doing what good players do when their shooting is off, take it to the basket.

2nd straight game too. But Boston's gameplan is just keep rotating guys on Butler and try and wear him down. Agree with Shaq, Bam Adebayo has to step up, can't be just a passer has to start scoring more.

Miami 9-15 from 3 and 9-32 from 2, very weird.

NBA refs my goodness, not only was it a hook, there was no defensive foul at all but now Spoelstra has to use his challenge this early because it's an And 1.

Butler needs to take the ball inside more until he gets his rhythm.

How was that not a foul on White?

Yeah the refs are driving me nuts. They review the hook on Brown and say no foul either way marginal contact, he had his left hand on the shoulder of Martin that's a foul.

On the shot by Vincent there's clear contact on White they don't call it and Vincent ends up having to foul, with his shoe, because he can't get a break to put his shoe on.

Also Butler was fouled by White on the fast break play.

The Heat can't score inside. They might be better off rotating the ball and shoot threes.

that rule 100% has to be changed. There's no way Miami should lose the 2 FT attempts from Adebayo because it was away from the ball foul?

The Heat need to put shooters in the game and shoot the ball from three.

Butler's knee has to be bothering him he keeps turning back in the paint.

That last possession Smart fouled 2 different Heat in the backcourt as they were trying to throw the ball upcourt, he literally tripped Adebayo. Could have been 5 if they get the call.

Boston's changing so many shots in the paint, and Bam is just invisible.

That was Butler's shooting motion. I didn't see an offensive foul.

If the referees see a bad call on review, they should be able to change it.

Miami literally can't catch a break. Go up 1 then that weird play where they called the goaltend by rule because he grabbed the rim and then for some reason Adebayo gets a T on it.

Great block by Horford that is the play of the game so far looks like 2 points and he erased it.

I feel like Miami is kind of panicking like if we lose this, we'll lose game 7? Butler is clearly not 100% he's going in there now trying to draw contact instead of trying to score

Duncan Robinson has kept the Heat in the game.
