The Miami Heat are on a three-game losing streak at the worst time of the year.
The play-in team had a 3-0 series lead and seemed to be well on their way to the NBA Finals. However, they have found it difficult to close out the Boston Celtics.
The team could’ve been on their way to the Finals in Game 6, but Derrick White ended those hopes with his game-winning shot.
After the loss, the team leaned on Sheeran’s music and lyrics by playing one of his sad songs in the locker room after their devastating, miraculous Game 6 loss to the Boston Celtics this weekend.
Via ESPN’s Get Up:
“The disbelief in that room was palpable. That was one of the quietest locker rooms I’ve ever been in after a game. Now you have to understand: Jimmy Butler usually has that speaker bumping in that room, win or lose. It was silent. And after about 10 or 15 minutes, Gabe Vincent walks over to his locker and he hits play on his phone, and he plays ‘Life Goes On’ by Ed Sheeran, and certainly, that’s the mantra the Heat want to have going into Game 7 tonight.”
The final game of the Boston/Miami series goes down tonight, and the winner will face the Denver Nuggets in the NBA Finals.
On Monday, it was reported that the Heat are not lacking in confidence as they have flights booked for Denver. That means they are fully expecting to win Game Seven in Boston.
After leading the series 3-0, the Heat are not on the verge of losing it, following three consecutive wins by the Celtics. If Boston manages to pull off the comeback on Monday night, it will be the first such case in NBA history.
Four teams have managed to tie the series after being down 0-3 but neither of them played Game 7 at home, and all of them ended up losing the ultimate game. Things are not looking well for the Heat.
Jimmy Butler will need to be unstoppable if the Heat hope to have a chance to stop this slide and continue their season.
