How the Boston Celtics stunned the Miami Heat

Coach Nick examines the thrilling final five minutes of the game between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat.

While LeBron James had his typical dominating night, both he and Dwyane Wade committed bad mistakes down the stretch that ultimately allowed the Celtics to pull out a miraculous win over the Heat on Saturday night.

While the game might have seemed to have turned on the final shot by Jeff Green, a number of little things happened in the fourth quarter that all add up to the result.

Brad Stevens continues to impress with his cool under fire demeanor, managing the game perfectly, possession by possession, giving his Celtics the best chance to win which is all you can ask of a coach.
