The Boston Celtics have struggled to close out games all postseason. And, in a must-win game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals in Miami against the Heat, they struggled to close it out again. They blew a ten-point lead late in the fourth quarter, but were bailed out by one of the most remarkable moments in the history of one of America’s most successful sports franchises.

The Celtics led 98-88 with 4:30 remaining in the game, but the Heat made a frantic comeback and cut it to two points and had possession of the ball in the closing seconds. Then, this happened.

And, he made all three free throws, which means the Celtics had to score to keep the series and season alive.

Luckily for them, Derrick White came up with one of the great plays in Celtics and NBA history.

And, EVERYONE was tweeting about it.

And, we are headed to a game 7 on Monday night in Boston. The Celtics will look to be the first team too ever to come back from a 3-0 series deficit and win the series.
