Miami Heat Cause Big Upset On The Road In Game 1 Of The Eastern Conference Finals

Even after major upsets in the first two rounds of the playoffs, many people had written off the Miami Heat heading into the Eastern Conference Finals against the higher seeded Boston Celtics, but with Jimmy Butler leading the way, it appears this team is ready to overcome all the odds.

That's exactly what they managed to do on the road against the No. 2 seeded Boston Celtics, as Butler once again starred alongside this group of role players to pick up an impressive 123-116 victory, putting all the pressure on Boston going forward. 

For the Celtics, they were unable to get another superhuman effort from Jayson Tatum, and it hurt them in a big way down the stretch, so now all eyes will turn to Friday's Game 2 which could make or break the series for both of these teams.
