Miami Fairy Tale is about to advance to the championship match for three consecutive wins against Boston
Miami, which has been writing fairy tales every day in the NBA playoffs, has only one win left to advance to the championship game.
Miami defeated Boston 128-102 in Game 3 of the 2022-2023 NBA Eastern Conference Finals (best-of-seven) held at Casaya Center in Miami on the 22nd. Miami, which returned home after winning both the first and second rounds of the away game, won until the third round and is on the verge of advancing to the championship game. Game 4 will be held at the same venue on the 24th.
Miami is the most prominent team in this playoff. Miami, which finished seventh in the regular league, lost to eighth-ranked Atlanta in the regular league in the seventh seed of the play-in tournament. He later defeated Chicago in the eighth seed match and joined the playoffs by the last train.
Miami became a completely different team in the playoffs. In the first round, he beat No. 1 seed Milwaukee with four wins and one loss, and in the second round, No. 5 seed New York also beat No. 5 seed New York with four wins and two losses. And in the Eastern Conference final, he pushed second seed Boston to the brink.
Miami will advance to the championship game for the first time in three years since the 2019-2020 season, when it was runner-up behind the LA Lakers with one more win. Miami’s last victory was in the 2012-2013 season with LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosch’s “Big Three.” In particular, New York is the only case in which the eighth seed has reached the championship game in the 1998-1999 season. Coincidentally, Miami was the first seed in the Eastern Conference, which New York beat in the first round at the time.
Until the middle of the first quarter, there was a tight race. However, as time passed, Miami, which had the support of home fans, began to widen the gap in earnest. With about five minutes left before the end of the third quarter, he ran to 87-56 and 31 points to decide the game early 안전놀이터 추천

Boston’s Jason Tatum made a double-double, but it was painful to score only 14 points (10 rebounds)
