The Boston Celtics are one win away from making NBA history.
Their 104-103 win over the Miami Heat was sealed by Derrick White's buzzer-beating tip-in to send the series back to TD Garden for Game 7. It was the sixth winning buzzer-beater when facing elimination in NBA history and the first since then-Toronto Raptors star Kawhi Leonard's 2019 shot against the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Celtics were in a 3-0 deficit to start the series, but have since won their last three consecutive games to even things up.
Teams are 150-0 all-time in best-of-seven series when taking a 3-0 lead, but the Celtics now have all the momentum ahead of the finale -- and NBA Twitter took notice.
