In Miami, Gabe Vincent’s gap was noticeable from the first quarter. Miami, which could not fill Vincent’s void at all, allowed ‘ace’ Tatum and White to bomb. Accordingly, Tatum and White broke Miami’s defense by combining 23 points in that quarter alone. Boston ended the first quarter with a 35-20, 15-point lead.
At the beginning of the second quarter, Brown scored 8 points in a row, including two 3-point shots, and Horford’s performance was added to take care of Tatum’s break. In a situation where the Boston players’ shooting sense cooled down, Miami produced points to pursue with Robinson’s hard work. Smart then cleverly gave Robinson foul trouble, and Tatum thoroughly led the high pick-and-roll game. Boston, which survived perfectly to Brown, ended the first half with a 61-44, 17-point lead.
Even in the third quarter, Tatum and White were still good, and Smart and Brown actively dug inside. Even though Miami raised the tempo, Tatum relaxed the game with a pass, and Smart broke several passes to score on the fast break and even exploded the outside gun. Thus, Boston entered the fourth quarter with a 90-72, 18-point lead.
Boston, which started fresh with White’s 3-point foul, took advantage of the size mismatch and continued to win free throws. Robinson and Heywood Highsmith still played the best in Miami, but manager Joe Mazzula changed the atmosphere at once by requesting a challenge. Afterwards, coach Majula gave the main players a break, starting with Smart, and proceeded with garbage time with 3 minutes and 20 seconds left in the game.
Afterwards, Boston, who added Sam Houser’s wedge 3 points, won 110-97, 13 points ahead of Miami.
