Miami prevailed in Boston and remains at the top of the East

Miami Heat won a key game this Wednesday against the boston celtics. After prevailing over 106-98 at the TD Garden, those from Florida maintained first place in the Eastern Conferencewhen there are only two weeks left in the regular season.

After a tumultuous past week, in which they lost all four of their games and there were even fights between the players and the coaching staff, Miami righted the ship with consecutive victories, first against Sacramento and this time against the Celtics.

And it was a more than outstanding victory, not only because both were playing for first place in the conference in this match, but because those in green had established themselves as one of the best teams in the entire league.

In a game dominated by defenses, the Heat came from behind in the fourth quarter to clinch the win. With the match even in the last minutes, it was Kyle Lowryformer Raptors point guard who converted a couple of key baskets to tip the scales in favor of his team.

Lowry finished with 23 points and 8 assists, but was well accompanied by Jimmy Butler, author of 24 points. In the loser, they did not reach 28 points and 10 rebounds from Jaylene Brown.

With this result, the Heat remain at the top of their zone with a 49-28 record, while the Celtics fell to fourth place with a 47-30 record. Both teams have five games left to complete the regular season.
