Miami Heat Have Miracle Run


Jimmy Butler tries to pass the ball around LeBron James

The Miami Heat are in the NBA finals. Let me say that again, the Miami Heat are in the NBA finals. They beat the team with the best record in the NBA, the Milwaukee Bucks, they beat the great all-around team of the Celtics, and a player who was dropping 35 per game in the bubble in T.J. Warren and the Pacers. Behind the heroics of Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, and rookie Tyler Herro, the Heat was able to make it through all 3 rounds and make it to the Finals. On the other side of the bracket, the L.A. Lakers have easily made it through losing only 3 of the 15 games they have played. LeBron James has been amazing this season, finishing second place in MVP voting. Anthony Davis is also playing amazing, including hitting a game-winning, buzzer-beater in game 3 of the series against the Nuggets. The Heat, a 5th seed are the obvious underdogs but Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo have been playing amazing, along with the help of point guard Goran Dragic but the Heat have been playing amazing so they do have a chance.
