This game was huge let down for Boston as there come back was no good. They fought tooth and nail to tie the series but failed. Tatum struggled in the first half being held scoreless, and he wouldn’t score his first points until the second half even though he did come alive in the second half, and finish with 28. Kemba and Jaylen both played well they had 20 points, but since Tatum was a slow starter the Celtics were playing behind most of the game. The Heat won 112-109 and took a 3-1 lead over the Celtics.
