Former Duke star Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics had a great opportunity to wrap the Eastern Conference Finals up at home but couldn’t do it as Miami won 111-103.

Jimmy Butler had a tremendous game with 47 points, nine rebounds and eight assists, one of the best playoff performances in Miami history.

As for Tatum, he had an excellent game with 30 points on 9-12 overall and 4-7 on threes. He also grabbed nine rebounds and had four assists.

It was an excellent game but the standards in Boston are insanely high.

He has a chance to begin to put his name in the company of guys like Bill Russell, John Havlicek, Dave Cowens, Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Kevin Garnett on Sunday.
