After three straight losses to start the Eastern Conference Finals, the Boston Celtics have bounced back with a vengeance, with the storied NBA franchise winning the last three games to force a Game 7 back at TD Garden.
Game 6 of this playoff series was the most entertaining thus far and perhaps the most entertaining game of the postseason, with some late-game heroics needed for the Celtics to stay alive.
With Jimmy Butler hitting three straight clutch free throws in a row for the Miami Heat, Erik Spoelstra’s squad seemed to have sealed the deal, as they left only three seconds for the Celtics to tie or win the game.
Fortunately for Boston, three seconds was all they needed, with guard Derrick White coming through in the clutch with an unexpected putback as time expired to give the Celtics the win and send the series back to Beantown.
White’s father, Richard White, couldn’t help his excitement after seeing what his son was able to do on Saturday night and took to Twitter with a simple four-word response.
Omg that’s my boy

Throughout the playoffs, White has repeatedly proven that the Celtics wouldn’t have gotten this far in the postseason without his presence on the floor.
On Monday night, White and company will put in all on the line once again, with Boston hosting Miami at TD Garden in hopes of getting the win and, as a result, becoming the only team in NBA history to come back from a 3-0 series deficit.
Whoever comes out on top on Monday will face the Denver Nuggets in the NBA Finals.NEXT: Video Shows Disbelief Of 2 Former Players After Celtics Game 6 Win
