After the Los Angeles Lakers’ fourth win over the Denver Nuggets, we already know that the Los Angeles team will be one of the two present in the NBA Finals. But who will be his rival in the Eastern Conference? ¿Miami Heat, a franchise where LeBron James made history in the past? OR Boston Celtics, the most traditional rival of those in California?
The Eastern Finals are being a long-running, highly strategic battle in which Florida lead 3-2, but in which the control of Miami is no longer as great as before the weekend due to the Celtics win 121-108 in Game 5 to prevent Miami from sealing the classification to what would be the sixth final in its short history in the NBA (the team debuted in 1988).
Those led by Brad Stevens were overwhelming in the third quarter, which they won 41-25, and they came back after a bad start to finish winning with some tranquility, supported by a first-rate defensive work that allowed them to run into the open field and be very effective in attack, with Jayson Tatum adding 31 points and Jaylen Brown scoring 28.
In addition, Miami, which in the first half was winning with Duncan Robinson’s points (he finished with 20, 17 of them in the first half) and an all-terrain Jimmy Butler, collapsed as it had not happened in the entire series: Erik Spoelstra’s attack disappeared before a Boston that greatly increased the pressure on the ball. Goran Dragic tried to be the savior, firing 11 shots in the second half to score 18 points, but the lack of outside aim (3-18 in the second half) was too much for Miami. What story will we see this Sunday?

The medical report for this sixth game does not present changes compared to the last game: the only injury casualties are those of rookies Romeo Langford (had surgery on the right wrist) at Boston Celtics y Chris Silva (pubic stress fracture) in Miami Heat.
