“We ain’t done yet:” Derrick White tip-in wins thriller in Miami

Posted: Saturday, May 27, 2023. 9:55 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: The Miami Heat had the crowd on their side and momentum after two runs in the fourth quarter to take the lead.

But there was just enough time for heartbreak once again, as unheralded Derrick White tipped in the game-winner from a miss by Marcus Smart for a 104-103 Celtics win.

What once seemed impossible is now staring the South Floridians in the face: a Game 7 exit to fall short once again of an NBA Finals trip.

It seemed to be on the cards after star Jimmy Butler was fouled behind the three-point line and made all three free throws, capping a personal run to erase a poor start. Will Miami rue two critical misses from Duncan Robinson, left with all the time and space in the world but unable to hit either time?

On the other side, the Celtics become the first team to force a Game 7 down three-nothing at home, on Memorial Day no less.

Boston’s star men started well and they led at halftime, but as even Jaylen Brown admitted, they took their foot off the gas late and very nearly saw their season end but for White, who inbounded the ball to Smart to start the play and quickly moved to the rim.

Game 7 Monday begins at 6:30 Belize time – the winner moves on to face the Denver Nuggets.
