One ref is being called out this week for his reaction while the Boston Celtics were losing to the Miami Heat in the Conference Finals.
While star Jimmy Butler was making his way to the basket for a made layup, slow-motion video showed a ref seemingly disgusted that it actually went in.
It led many to think the ref had money on the game, and most notably, the Boston Celtics.
Jimmy Butler poured in 35 points, seven assists, six steals, and five rebounds to lead the Miami Heat to a 123-116 away triumph over the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Wednesday.
The Celtics were looking like a team that would blow the game open, but Butler and company took advantage of their bad defense in the third quarter, where this game swung in Miami’s favor and stayed until the final buzzer.
Miami outscored Boston 46-25 in the third, shooting 17-of-26 overall and 6-of-9 from deep.
Any advantage Boston had after an excellent first half was erased by a catastrophic third quarter that dropped the Celtics to an early 1-0 deficit.
Game 2 will take place on Friday at 8:30 p.m. ET in Boston.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
