Video: Heat fans seen going berserk in Miami after team advances to NBA Finals
- Updated: September 27, 2020
On Sunday, the Miami Heat continued an impressive, Cinderella-like run as they eliminated the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Now that their team will play in the NBA Finals, Heat fans have taken to the streets of South Florida to celebrate.

Miami seemed likely to make the playoffs this season once it acquired All-Star Jimmy Butler in a huge trade last summer.
But no one outside of the Miami area expected the team to do anything beyond appearing in the postseason.
Instead, the Heat rolled the heavily favored Milwaukee Bucks in the second round of the playoffs, then took care of the Celtics in the next round.
If the Heat slow down the pace against L.A., and especially if young studs such as Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro continue to impress, perhaps an even bigger celebration will be held in South Florida in a couple of weeks.
