    That first one you could tell he didn’t want to shoot it for whatever reason but he sooo wide open, he was forced to. The second one had no chance. He was shook.

    3 things you have to do if you have a 1-point lead and the other team has a few seconds to shoot:
    1. Don’t foul
    2. Make it a difficult shot
    3. Box out and get the rebound. You know the other team will crash the boards.

    It's not easy to focus on guarding to prevent an easy shot and also position for a rebound at the same time. Miami never prepared for Boston to have two shots in 3 seconds.

    Yeah, he really shit the bed. He was hoping those Butler free throws would win the game and everyone would forget.

    He was the one backguarding White on the inbound pass at the end, wasn't he? Tough position, because you have to turn and find him. My bigger question is when you need 3 seconds of good defense why he's even on the floor.

    Makes way too much for what he provides.

    It must have been Strus on the ball.

    Strus was helping defend Tatum, which makes sense. Jimmy Butler was on Tatum too. Strus is the player on the right.

    Here the ball is in the air. Everyone on the Heat should be heading to the basket. Gabe Vincent did nothing at all. As the clock winds down, Adebayo should be heading to the hoop.

    Tatum headed to the hoop. Why didn't Adebayo? The Heat were just waiting for the clock to expire. Vincent raising his arms.

    Tatum also got right to the rim.
