Williams ha guidato i Celtics con 27 punti su 10 su 22 ed era 7 su 18 da tre punti. Ha aggiunto sei rimbalzi e due stoppate bene.
Curry has hit seven threes in a Game 7 twice in his career. He did it in a win over the Oklahoma City Thunder nel 2016 and against the Houston Rockets nel 2018. Both games were in which the Warriors won.
Morris nailed seven threes in Game 7 between the Clippers and Dallas Mavericks in last season’s playoffs. He was 7-of-9 in the win, finire con 23 punti.
Williams, who doesn’t have as many bonafides as Curry does or the number of seasons under his belt as Morris does, came up in the clutch when Boston needed him the most. It’s the first time he led the Celtics in scoring in his career – regular season or playoffs.
Coming into Game 7, he was averaging 9.4 punti e 4.2 rebounds in 10 total playoff games.
He will definitely be called upon for similar performances against the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals.
The two teams last played in the Eastern Conference finals in the Orlando bubble at the height of the coronavirus pandemic. Miami got the better of Boston in that series, 4-2. Jayson Tatum and Bam Adebayo were the leading scorers for their respective teams.
Gioco 1 of the conference finals is set for Tuesday in Miami at 8:30 p.m. E.
