Heat Survive Scorching Comeback Attempt By Knicks, Advance To Eastern Conference Finals For Second Consecutive Year

The Miami Heat are heading to the Eastern Conference Finals for a second consecutive season after a thrilling 96-92 victory against the New York Knicks in game 6. The game was led by Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo, who "when the game is close, [the Heat] know who to go to," as said by Heat veteran Kevin Love.

Butler finished with 24 points and 8 rebounds, while Adebayo finished with 23 points and 9 boards. Butler also iced the game by sinking two free throws with 14.4 seconds left. The victory breaks the Knicks' streak of not reaching the conference finals since 2000, and it makes Miami just the second team in the last 25 years to clinch multiple series in a single postseason with a comeback of 14+ in the deciding game.

Discussing the win, Love said, "When the game is close, the Heat know who to go to -- Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo." The two star players proved their mettle and carried the Heat to the Eastern Conference Finals.
