Boston Celtics beat Miami Heat to reach NBA Finals for first time since 2010

The Boston Celtics reached the NBA Finals for the first time in 12 years as they held off a determined Miami Heat for a 100-96 game-seven win.

Boston failed in their last five play-off runs and almost did so again as Jimmy Butler missed a late three-point attempt which would have given Miami the lead.


But the Celtics go on to face the Golden State Warriors in the Finals.
