On the night of Tuesday to Wednesday, as part of the NBA play-offs, the Miami Heat and the Phoenix Suns took a step towards qualifying for the conference finals. The two franchises lead 3-2 in their respective series, after their victory over the Philadelphia 76ers (120-85) and the Dallas Mavericks (110-80).
Miami had fun. On the night of Tuesday to Wednesday, as part of the NBA play-offs, Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semi-finals, the Heat crushed the Philadelphia 76ers (120-85), to regain control in this series (3-2). This meeting was one-sided and Miami ruled from start to finish, led in particular by Jimmy Butler, top scorer in his franchise but also top scorer of this meeting, with personal statistics of 23 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists. From the middle of the first quarter, the Heat then took matters into their own hands, in terms of the score, with a 13/26 on shots, gradually increasing their lead. This rose to +18 (54-36) before the break, +20 after and even reached +37 (118-81) at the end of the game, before stabilizing definitively at +35.

Phoenix also had fun
Phoenix did not elaborate. On the night of Tuesday to Wednesday, as part of the NBA play-offs, Game 5 of the Western Conference semi-finals, the Suns crushed the Dallas Mavericks (110-80), to regain control in this series (3-2). The locals were notably guided by Devin Booker, the All-Star guard, who finished top scorer in his franchise but also top scorer of this meeting, with personal statistics of 28 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists. If the score is therefore particularly river, however, the Suns were led for a large part of the first and second quarter. It was only directly after the break that the trend therefore reversed. In the third quarter, Phoenix inflicted a scathing 33-12 on its one-night opponent, to then increase its maximum lead to +30 at the end of this meeting (110-80).
