Boston, which overturned an 18-point deficit, runs for its third straight win in the NBA East finals

Boston’s Tatum celebrates after hitting a 3-pointer

The Boston Celtics won three games in a row in the National Basketball Association (NBA) Eastern Conference finals.

Boston won 114-111 in the away game against the Indiana Pacers in Game 3 of the 2023-2024 NBA Playoffs Eastern Conference Finals (4 wins out of 7) held at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA on the 26th (Korean time).

Boston, which has won three games in a row, needs just one more win in the remaining games 4 to 7 to advance to the championship game. 안전놀이터

The most recent example of Boston advancing to the championship game was two years ago in the 2021-2022 season (runner-up). Last season, they lost 3 wins and 4 losses to the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals.

Boston struggled this day, trailing by 18 points at 66-84 in the third quarter.

Indiana’s starting guard Tyrese Haliburton was sidelined due to a leg muscle injury, but Indiana, backed by the support of its home fans, was dragged until the end of the game. 슬롯사이트

Boston, whose starting center Kristaps Porzingis was out due to a right leg injury, was down 5 points, 106-111, with about a minute left in the game.

However, with 1 minute and 12 seconds left, Jayson Tatum dug under the goal and made an exquisite behind-the-scenes back pass to Al Horford in the corner, opening up an opportunity for an unmarked 3-pointer.

Boston, which trailed by two points with Horford’s three-pointer, managed to come back 112-111 with an additional free throw following a goal by Jrue Holiday 38 seconds before the end.

In Indiana’s subsequent counterattack, Andrew Nemhard’s middle shot missed, and 3 seconds before the end, when Indiana was still down by 1 point, Nemhard lost the ball to Holiday and lost the game.

Tatum led Boston to victory with 36 points, 10 rebounds, and 8 assists. Horford also contributed with seven 3-point shots.

Indiana, where it is unclear whether Haliburton will participate in Game 4, was pushed to the edge despite Nemhard’s 32 points. In an NBA short-term game with a 4-win system out of 7, there has yet to be a case where a series was overturned with 4 consecutive wins after 3 losses.

The fourth game between the two teams will be held at the same location on the 28th. 토토사이트 추천
