  • Playoff Caleb ends Boston's season w/ 26/10 line
    Caleb Martin was blisteringly hot Monday, hitting 11-of-16 shots for 26 points and adding 10 rebounds, three assists and a steal.

    Advice: Martin was feeling it all evening, and he hit four of his six three-point attempts while finishing behind only Jimmy Butler (28 points) for team lead in scoring. Martin had his coming out party in the ECF, averaging 19.3 points, 6.4 rebounds and 3.1 triples and making a case for ECF MVP. He and other Heat role players such as Gabe Vincent and Duncan Robinson stepped up in big ways with Tyler Herro and Victor Oladipo sidelined, and without their steady contributions, this series win would not have been possible. There’s a chance Herro is back for at least part of the Finals, but after such a stellar series against Boston, there’s no way Martin’s role is marginalized. From Charlotte outcast to Eastern Conference hero, Martin's story is a true rags-to-riches tale. We're anxious to see how he follows it up against Denver. Yesterday, 11:25 pm
  • Ironic: Butler wins Larry Bird Trophy as ECF MVP
    Jimmy Butler delivered 28 points, seven rebounds, six assists, three steals and three triples Monday as the Heat defeated the Celtics 103-84 in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Advice: Himmy Butler led all scorers in this one, as he willed his team to yet another improbable victory. This one was perhaps the most impressive of all, as all the momentum in this series seemed to be with the Celtics after three straight wins. Butler averaged 24.7 points, 7.7 rebounds and 6.1 assists in the seven-game series, avenging a loss to Boston in Game 7 of the ECF exactly one year ago. The Nuggets are monster favorites to win the NBA Finals, but as we've seen through Miami's run through the East, Butler and Co. shouldn't be counted out so easily. Game 1 of the Finals tips off in Denver on Thursday, and the Heat have opened as 8.5-point dogs. Yesterday, 11:18 pm
  • Injured Tatum limps his way to 14/11/4 in Game 7
    Jayson Tatum turned in 14 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a triple Monday in a 103-84 loss to the Heat.

    Advice: Tatum shot 5-of-13 from the field and committed two turnovers. He turned his ankle on the first play of the game, and didn’t look the same the rest of the evening. The superstar forward could be seen grimacing in pain after multiple shot attempts and rebounds, and he limped down the court for most of his 42 minutes on the court. Notably, Tatum went 15-of-15 from the charity stripe in Game 6, but he attempted only four free throws in this one, showing his lack of aggression, likely due to the early injury. It’s a terrible ending to the series after Boston rallied to win three straight, and fans will never truly know what the outcome would have been had Tatum been healthy. The Celtics now face an offseason that will be riddled with questions surrounding the head coach and the star pairing of Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Yesterday, 11:08 pm
  • Clock strikes midnight: Brown turns into a pumpkin
    Jaylen Brown finished Monday’s loss to Miami with 19 points on 8-of-23 shooting and added eight rebounds, five assists, a steal, two blocks, a triple and eight turnovers.

    Advice: Brown led the Celtics in scoring, but the point total came from volume rather than efficiency. He was just 1-of-9 from beyond the arc and finished -17 in the final box score. In one of the biggest games of his career, Brown committed the most turnovers he’d ever committed in a regular season or postseason appearance. Jayson Tatum injured his ankle less than 30 seconds into the contest, and Brown picked the wrong moment to completely disappear. Derrick White (18 points on 5-of-12 shooting) did his best to keep Boston in the contest, but the Celtics shot a frigid 9-of-42 from three, and the bench scored 16 points on 16 shots. The blame can’t be squarely placed on Brown in this one, but star players need to deliver in the biggest moments. The Celtics have some major questions this offseason, and there’s a chance we’ve seen the last of Tatum and Brown as teammates. Yesterday, 10:58 pm
  • Sparks offense with double-double
    Martin totaled 26 points (11-16 FG, 4-6 3Pt), 10 rebounds, three assists and one steal over 45 minutes during Monday's 103-84 victory over Boston in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Advice: Martin finished with a team-high-tying rebound total while finishing as one of two Heat players with 25 or more points in Monday's Game 7 victory. Martin, who didn't have a 25-point performance during the regular season, surpassed that mark twice in the Eastern Conference Finals and has recorded two straight double-doubles for Miami. Yesterday, 8:48 pm
  • Lifts Heat with all-around showing
    Butler posted 28 points (12-28 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, six assists and three steals across 43 minutes during Monday's 103-84 victory over the Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Advice: Butler once again did it all for Miami to help lead them to the NBA Finals, posting a team-high mark in points and steals while connecting on a team-best shot total from the field. Butler has tallied at least 25 points, five rebounds and five assists in five of his last seven outings. Yesterday, 8:47 pm
  • Leads offense in Game 7 loss
    Brown ended with 19 points (8-23 FG, 1-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal across 43 minutes during Monday's 103-84 loss to the Heat in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Advice: Brown led the Celtics in scoring, assists and blocks while finishing two rebounds shy of a double-double in Monday's Game 7 defeat. Brown finished the Eastern Conference Finals by posting at least 15 points, eight rebounds and five assists in two games. He scored at least 15 points in six of seven contests. Yesterday, 8:46 pm
  • Struggles from field in defeat
    Tatum recorded 14 points (5-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists and one steal over 42 minutes during Monday's 103-84 loss to the Heat in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Advice: Tatum struggled shooting from the field but still managed to post a double-double performance in Monday's Game 7 loss in Boston. Tatum led the team in rebounds, but he connected on just five of 13 shots from the field to finish below the 15-point mark for just the second time of the series. Tatum recorded a double-double in six of seven Eastern Conference Finals games. Yesterday, 8:45 pm
  • Stays hot despite loss
    Robinson had 13 points (5-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt), one rebound and two assists across 20 minutes during Saturday's 104-103 loss to Boston in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Advice: After hardly playing in Game 1, Robinson has averaged 14.0 points on 50 percent shooting from deep over the past five matchups. He failed to connect on a couple of wide-open chances to give Miami the lead late in the fourth quarter, but he's still been a solid offensive weapon for the Heat this series and figures to have a sizable bench role during Game 7 on Monday.
