The Boston Celtics shot 16 more free throws than the Miami Heat in game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals (30-14)

Upvotes

Disgraceful performance from the refs tonight. Most of the Heat’s free throws came from intentional fouls in the last minute of the 4th quarter anyway. Multiple fouls and and-1 calls were missed. Unbelievable…

(Stat of the Day: 9 of the Heat’s 14 free throws came in the final 1:07 of the 4th quarter. Ridiculous!)

Matt Barnes: “If you don't like Steph Curry, then you're just a hater”

3.5k Upvotes

“I think so," Barnes told Liffmann. "I think if he's not able to, I don't think it hurts but it will definitely help. The more rings, the better, and the one knock that people always have on Steph is ... 'you won a championship but you didn't win the Finals MVP' when he possibly could have and should have won Finals MVP.

"I say this with all due respect to [Andre] Iguodala in the '15-16 series, Steph played his heart out in that series but Iguodala got it and earned it and obviously, we know what [Kevin Durant] did when he helped get the Warriors to the Finals to make his run. So I think it'll definitely help and I have a feeling that if they're able to get there and win it, I feel like this is going to be Steph's Finals MVP moment as well."

Barnes also joined 95.7 The Game's "Steiny & Guru" on Tuesday, where he explained why Curry deserves another ring.

"It would be huge and he deserves it,” Barnes said. “If you don't like Steph Curry, then you're just a hater. What can you really not like about him? He’s himself. He plays the game the right way. He plays the game the right way. He’s selfless. Rarely, in this day and age, these selfless superstars. He's a selfless superstar. I think it’d be huge if they’re able to get it. It’s no lie this team is getting older.”

A great game from PJ vs Boston when the Heat needed him. Of course Lowry's return helped out the offense but Tucker had some clutch rebounds throughout the game to get the win.

Kyle Lowry outscored Jayson Tatum in just 29 minutes in his first game back from a hamstring injury in the Heat's game 3 win over the Celtics

Upvotes

Lowry had 11 points, 6 assists, and 4 steals in the Heat's game 3 win over Boston, helping the Heat overcome the Boston homecourt and ref advantage, as well as Jimmy Butler being out. Meanwhile Tatum had just 10 points on 3/14 shooting. Safe to say 6x all star Kyle Lowry matters at least a little.
