The Boston Celtics 16 winning streak is finally broken surprisingly by Miami Heat.
What does this mean for the Boston Celtics?
Well, from the looks of things, this loss is just nothing for Boston, a 16 win streak is a 16 win streak and it is not as easy as picking flowers in order to have a rally as successful as that.
In fact, it is not as though the Heat shut down the Boston completely, they just played a little bit better and the last phase of the time was on their side when Dion Waiters hit two big three pointers to break away against the reigning Celtics. Kyrie still scored well with 23 points as well as Jayson Tatum with 18.
How about for the Miami heat?
If the game only had a bit of significance for Celtics, it was or is the other way around for the Miami Heat. Imagine taking down a team after that team had bent so many knees on that 16 straight games. It surely boosted the morale of the whole Miami squad especially those who played huge that night – Goran Dragic and Waiters.
Moment of Truth
It seemed like the hoop decided to end the Celtics’ climb when Waiters shot a long one, missed but got the lucky bounce as the game approached its near end.
A fortunate shot put an end to Boston Celtics 16 game push which explains that Celtics did not run out of steam or was severely outplayed by Miami, it was a matter of luck that favored Waiters and Miami to deliver the lucky bounced killer three.
The whole league is still eyeing for the explosive Boston Celtics. They haven’t avenged their loss on the Cavs yet and it still is yet to come. It shall be one of this season’s biggest match up.
