Game 6 Breakdown: Miami headed to the finals after eliminating the Celtics in 125-113 victory

Despite holding a 6-point lead in the 4th quarter the Boston Celtics weren’t able to force a game 7, losing to the Miami Heat 125-113. There was a lot of back and forth in the game with 14 lead changes, but the Heat put together a big run late to seal the deal. The Celtics have consistently had issues closing out games this series and tonight was no different, but let’s break down why.

Both teams came out with a lot of firepower on the offensive end, but neither could really string together more than a few defensive stops until the 4th quarter.
