Celtics survive Heat in Game 7 to advance to the NBA Final

The Celtics needed every minute of Game 7 to punch their ticket to the NBA Finals, but they outlasted the Heat in an absolute thriller, and for the first time since 2010, they are headed to the NBA Finals. 

Here’s everything that transpired in a wild, wild finish. 

The Celtics got some news worthy of an eye-roll on Saturday evening — the Last Two Minutes report showed four calls that went against them that should not have gone against them, including two bad foul calls as the Heat pulled away. 

Ime Udoka said the Celtics are looking to put everything about Game 6 away. 

A reporter asked Udoka about the ebbs and flows of the series, and how the Celtics can maintain and sustain their energy. 

“The looks aren’t always there and they are rushed at times. With our guys, I feel they can play adequate minutes if we need to increase them like they have throughout the playoffs, they would still be fresh. That was just more geared toward longer minutes possibly and being fresh tonight.”
