Celtics vs. Heat score: Jimmy Butler shines as Miami forces a Game 7 with pivotal win over Boston

The Miami Heat aren’t dead just yet. We will have a do-or-die Game 7 on Sunday night in South Beach after Jimmy Butler led the top-seeded team in the Eastern Conference to a crucial 111-103 victory in Game 6 at TD Garden to extend this series and keep their title hopes alive. 

Butler was fantastic for Miami when they needed him to be the most as he finished the win with a game-high 47 points to go along with nine rebounds, eight assists and four steals. Butler also had plenty of help as Kyle Lowry turned in one of his best games of the postseason finishing with 18 points, 10 assists and four boards before ultimately fouling out. 

For Boston, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown did all they could to lead the Celtics to their first Finals berth since 2010 but, in the end, it wasn’t enough that the two combined for 50 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists while shooting a combined 15/25 from the field. 

Now, we’ll enjoy the best thing that sports can offer on Sunday night. A Game 7.
