Bam Adebayo scored 31 points with 10 rebounds filling a void left by injured fellow teammate Jimmy Butler and leading the Miami Heat to a 109-103 victory over the Boston Celtics in Game 3 on Saturday night. Jaylen Brown led the Celtics with 40 points and nine rebounds. Game 4 is set for Monday night in Boston.
After a painful loss to the Miami Heat, the Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum (10 points, 6 boards) talked about his performance in Game 3: “Six turnovers and no field goals in the second half. That is unacceptable. I have to play better. I feel like I left the guys hanging tonight. That’s on me.”
