of Miami heat Led Boston Celtics One more point Jimmy Butler Canned Corner Three Pointers in the last few seconds of Game 1 regulation at the Eastern Conference Finals. When the Celtics inbound the ball at the sideline after a time-out Marcus smart Draws a defensive foul in Miami Derrick Jones Jr. Before the pass is thrown.
This is the state of the play.
Look at the play again. Maybe Smart shouldn’t get all the credits. surely Kemba Walker He gave Jones Jr. a slight stab and made him smart in play. Did the Celtics intentionally create this? Probably not, but helped them tie the game before they inbound the ball.
Fans were wondering why Boston was given a free throw after the call. That is the rule. The contents of the rule book are as follows..
Out-of-field fouls as defined in Section III (h) on pages 4 and 18 are managed as follows:
Individual and team fouls are evaluated and one free throw attempt is awarded. Free throws are attempted by any player in the game when a personal foul is committed.
The smart — tenacious competitors and high IQ players — were completely aware of the rules for falling into such a situation.
Heat wins Game 1 anyway. Jayson Tatum’s Dunk Attempt Bam Adebayo Game Saving Block.. It was a great first game for those who feel it will be a great series.
It’s a smart-like character that takes this series to the next level. Smart was a Celtics ace defender for a long time, but now he’s a capable large caliber gunner in the 3-point range. Smart’s definition of quality remains his desire to do anything to win. This is certainly another example of that.
