Nba playoffs: Miami in the final in the East, Dallas brings Phoenix to the beautiful

In the East there is the first finalist. Miami closes the score in Game 6 at the Wells Fargo Center, beating 99-90 Philadelphia and thus winning the semifinal series 4-2. To take the scene is Jimmy Butler, who drags the Heat with 32 points and in the end goes to embrace former teammate Joel Embiid, the great loser of this challenge. Miami, in the second Conference final in three seasons and now looking forward to the winner of Milwaukee-Boston (Game 6 in the Italian night, Bucks ahead 3-2), pushes on the accelerator in the third quarter, with a break of 16-2 in which Butler signs 14 points with 6/9 from the field. “I still don’t know how we let him go”, Embiid’s regret (20 points and 12 rebounds) recalling Butler’s farewell in the summer of 2019. In the Sixers he disappoints Harden, almost never decisive in these play-offs (11 points, all in the first half, in Game 6) and only the shadow of the player admired in Houston. “We weren’t good enough to beat Miami”, admits coach Rivers, who despite a contract until 2025 could be questioned considering that even last year, even with the best record in the East, Philadelphia did not go beyond the second round of the play-off.
