Miami Heat halt Boston Celtic’s momentum to take win in game one of Eastern Conference Finals

Jimmy Butler has scored 41 points, and the Miami Heat turned things around with a huge third quarter on the way to beating the short-handed Boston Celtics 118-107 in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Tyler Herro scored 18 and Gabe Vincent added 17 for the Heat, who outscored Boston 39-14 in the third period on Tuesday night. Butler had 17 alone in the third, outscoring the Celtics by himself over those 12 minutes.

Jayson Tatum had 29 for Boston, who were without starters Marcus Smart (foot) and Al Horford (health and safety protocols). Jaylen Brown added 24 points and the Celtics got 18 apiece from Robert Williams III and Payton Pritchard.

Game 2 is Thursday in Miami.
