Miami Heat has advanced to the NBA Finals after defeating the Boston Celtics in six games of the Conference Finals. Now that Miami has emerged as the Eastern Champions, they have shut the haters who didn’t expect them to make it that far.
Celtics’ former star, Paul Pierce has given quite a lot of judgments after earning the name of ‘analyst’ against his name. Recently, during the season, Pierce had hushed away Miami Heat from the list of teams that could make it close to the championship.
Well, Jimmy Butler and Co. have given him an apt response after a 125-113 victory over the Celtics in Game 6 to close the series 4-2. Bam Adebayo recorded a career-high 32 points and 14 rebounds, a spectacular show of talent on the court. Moreover, Jimmy Butler added another 22 points to the win.
“If the Miami Heat is close, that means every team in the NBA is close,” Pierce said on ‘The Jump’

Wade sent a message for Pierce after Miami Heat advanced to Finals
As the season has unfolded to finally squeeze down to the Finals teams, Heat, and Lakers, Paul Pierce is getting trolled on Twitter over his statement. The most hilarious one would surely be Heat legend, Dwyane Wade’s message for Pierce.
Wade put up a video asking Pierce, “You know where I live,” immediately after Heat beat Celtics in the East.

Wade and Pierce anyways do not share a sweet history with each other. Pierce had claimed to be better than Wade last year that heated things up further.
Moreover, Pierce has been wary of Heat since the very beginning, he never considered them a ‘competition’ despite their stellar performances.
While many vouched for the Milwaukee Bucks to take over the crown from the East, Heat came as a blowback. Other than some stars like Butler and Adebayo, Tyler Herro has also exhibited his capabilities in recent times. That adds to their strength as a team.
The Heat is up against the star-studded Lakers that brings immense competition on the table. It will be an exciting contest to see Butler vs LeBron in the bubble. Who will clinch the title in your opinion?
