On Sunday, Miami Heat beat Boston Celtics in Orlando to head for the NBA finals. They won the game with a score of 125 –113. Tyler Herro scored 11 points during the fourth quarter, and Bam Adebayo had 14 rebounds and 32 points. Andre scored 15 while Jimmy Butler went on to add 12 points. After 2014, this is the first time Miami Heat will be playing in the finals. On Wednesday, the finals will be held to go up against the Los Angeles Lakers. Erik Spoelstra, the head coach of the team, said that they are excited for the final. LeBron James, Miami’s previous player, is now a part of the Lakers. He gave out a statement saying that they know whom they will be facing. Brad Stevens, coach of the Celtics, said that the current Miami team is robust, tough and they deserve credit.
Pat Riley, the president of Miami Heat, has had a significant impact on LeBron James. James had learned a lot during his time with Heat. The upcoming finals will show us the complex dynamic between James and Riley. In 2014, James left the Miami team when Riley got furious. He did not take James’ going well, which offended James. Team members asked him not to leave and calling his decision a big mistake. Both of them wanted to win, which is the reason they can get their once-close relationship back together. LA Lakers winning this final will be their 17th win, and they will surely give in their all to win it.
