Celtics highlights: Boston stumbles in Game 3, fall to Miami Heat 109-103

·1 min read

The Boston Celtics got punked on their home floor of TD Garden in Game 3 of their series with the Miami Heat on Saturday night, falling 109-103 to the Heat after nearly digging their way out of a 26-point deficit in a game that saw both veteran point guard Marcus Smart and All-Star swingman Jayson Tatum exit the game temporarily due to injuries and Heat star forward Jimmy Butler (knee) for the remainder of the game in the second half.

The Celtics were led by star forward Jaylen Brown, who had 40 points and 9 boards to lead all scorers but also 7 turnovers as something of an emblem of what went wrong with the Celtics and their 23 turnovers to the Heat’s 8.
