The Celtics have done it again. With their 104-103 win over the Miami Heat on Saturday night, the C’s have come back from their 3-0 deficit to force a Game 7 Monday night in Boston.

It wasn’t just any win either. The Celtics seemed destined for the offseason after three Jimmy Butler three-pointers put the Heat up 103-102 with just three seconds to go.

  • Needing something quick, the Celtics turned to Marcus Smart on a contested three-point shot. That shot came up short, but Derrick White got himself in the right place and the right time and tipped the ball back into the basket with less than half a second to spare.

    It was a play that will be seen and heard on NBA and Boston sports highlight reels for decades to come. Here’s what the call sounded like on 98.5 The Sports Hub and the Sports Hub BetMGM Celtics Radio Network with Sean Grande and Cedric Maxwell…
