BOSTON, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - The Celtics tied the Eastern Conference Finals up in dramatic fashion Saturday night in Miami, with a last second tap in by White, at the buzzer, forcing a game 7. They trailed in the series 3-0 and with a win last night it would be the first team in NBA history to come back from trailing 3-0, but it was not meant to be. The Celtics were out played all game.

The Celtics got off to a bad start, missing their first 13 three pointers. At half time they were down by 11 and went on to lose 103-84. The Celtics shot 39 % from the field and only 21% from three point land, but still attempted 42 3-pointers. Brown went 1 for 9 from three point land and had 8 turnovers. Tatum twisted his ankle early in the first quarter. He still played 42 minutes, but only scored 14 points with 4 assists.

Miami will go on to play the Denver Nuggets in the NBA Championship. Game one is in Denver Thursday night.
