In an 0-2 hole, the Boston Celtics were facing a must-win situation entering Game 3. They needed a win to keep the series, and their Championship hopes alive.
Fortunately for them, they were able to come out with the 117-106 victory, thanks to huge performances from their stars, Jayson Tatum (who dropped 25 points and 14 rebounds and Jaylen Brown (26 points, 7 rebounds).
The win today prompted a lot of excitement from the community, and it seems harder than ever to guess the outcome of the rest of the games going forward.
Gordon Hayward was pretty solid in his return, putting up 6 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 steals for the night. It is clear that if the Celtics wings can play like this for the rest of this series, they're going to be extremely hard to beat.
As for the Heat, they still control the series, having a 2-1 lead. But if they don't find a way to contain Tatum and Brown, this thing could be tied up after Game 4 ends on Wednesday.
It will be interesting to see what transpires.
