Beijing time on May 30, the East finals seven battles, the Heat 103-84 eliminated the Celtics (referred to as the Green Army) into the finals, Butler 28 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists and 3 steals, Adebayo 12 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists, Martin 26 points, 10 rebounds and 3 assists, and the excellent performance of all role players, Coach Spoo's 4 "fine-tuning" victories over Mazura is the top priority.
Butler led the team to eliminate the Green Army 28+7+6+3
1. Joint defense.
The game went to the first quarter of 6 minutes and 50 seconds, the Heat trailed 4-9, Mazura mysteriously called a timeout when the team had the ball, and then came back, Coach Spall took the lead and sacrificed the joint defense, note, throughout the series, when Coach Spo sacrificed the defense alliance, Mazura did not really achieve a crack, so the next 7 minutes:
Heat defense, Smart hit a three-point iron
This is the first round of the timeout, the Heat United, Smart has a three-point opportunity in the bottom right corner, but Butler's defense still forms interference, the defense is successful, and once the defense is successful?
Second, speed up.
Note that the Heat's defense is three guards at the top of the arc, the purpose is to enhance the defensive aggressiveness, once the steal is formed, the team resolutely accelerates, so:
Butler countered with a layup
Vincent's interference, when Brown's crotch pulled back, Butler made a steal and counterattacked, facing the three to retreat and he forcefully sent the ball into the net.
Lowry helped Martin three points
Another example is this round, after the team's defense was successful, Lowry instigated, Martin fell on the right arc, and directly chased three points.
In the next seven minutes, Vincent was in the middle of the range, Butler made a steal and a layup, Butler assisted Martin on a three-point shot and Strus made a three-pointer, and Butler singled out Lowe's Chinese; After Mazura timeout, Lowry helped Martin three points as mentioned above, Butler hesitantly broke through for a layup, Lowry helped Strus fight back for a layup, 22-15, and the Heat rallied over.
This was an important turning point in the game, when Mazura came back from a senseless bizarre timeout, and Coach Spall used both defense and speed to blast an 18-6 rally while trailing 4-9 to complete the comeback.
Third, change the formation.
After entering the second quarter, the two sides entered a mixed lineup period, and Coach Spall directly changed the lineup, two small details:
1. After abandoning Love in the last game, Zeller was also targeted by the Green Army, in this game, Coach Spoh decisively changed his lineup, the two backup center forwards no longer played, and Adebayo made three fouls in the first half? He actually let Butler play the number five position, which was not very effective, but at least it did not give the Green Army benefits for Love and Zeller.
2. More importantly, in order to improve the depth, he dared to use Highsmith, who performed very well in the G5 battle, and the effect was:
Highsmith fought the ball
Lowry hit the iron from mid-range, and the ball was shot by a five-five, and Highsmith fought aggressively while trailing Brogdon, and after regaining the ball, Dunroe made a three-point arc on the right side.
The Green Army attacked, Highsmith one-on-one steal Tatum countered for a layup and then the next one, the Heat led 27-15 by 12 points, and the team directly got up; What about the use of Mazura in depth?
Dunrow's Empty Cut ate Hauze
Brogdon returned, and the result was 0 of 3 without any offensive and defensive output, with a plus-minus of -15; Then he activated Hauzer? As shown in the picture, Dunro completed an easy layup with an empty cut.
4. "Targeted" Tatum.
In the first round of the game, Tatum hit Vincent and unfortunately sprained his right ankle when he landed on a layup, and then regardless of the slight stumbling of the offensive and defensive running, Coach Spall decisively adjusted, allowing Butler to start attacking Tatum, the effect:
Martin eats Tatum
For example, in the third quarter, Martin held the ball over, saw that Tatum was limping back in front of him, directly accelerating the breakthrough, Tatum could not follow the defense at all, Martin leaned back from the middle distance to help the Heat maintain a 10-point lead in the third quarter 76-66.
Butler forced Tatum to eat
And this offense, when Butler directly named Tatum to complete a backhand layup, you can clearly see that Tatum's foot movement is painful.
Well, although a little cruel, Spoh's meaning is very clear, "Take advantage of your illness, kill you!" ”
So when Butler's layup fixed the score at 96-73 to establish a 23-point advantage, the game was out of suspense.
At this point, look at this game, in fact, the key point root that really affects the victory or defeat, the joint defense sacrificed by coach Spoo, strangled the throat of the green army, and throughout the series, Mazura did not find a solution to crack; Then, the team picked up again, Butler picked up, Martin became a god soldier, plus Tatum's opening injury could not give a response, GAME OVER! I think Mazura should have lost comfortably in the face of Coach Spoo's on-the-spot adjustments.
