Even with San Antonio missing the playoffs this season, leave it to a former Spur to have the shot of the postseason so far. Once San Antonio prodigal son, Derrick White, etched his name in Boston Celtic lore on Saturday, May 27, after tipping in teammate Marcus Smart’s errant jump shot to give the Celtics a 104-103 victory over the Miami Heat in Game 6.
The game-winning basket all but assured that the Eastern Conference Finals would be going to a historic Game 7, which will be played on Monday, May 29. And much of that, could be credited to White. The former Spur hit a trio of clutch three pointers and played his routine stellar defense as Boston pulled of the unthinkable inside the Kaseya Center in Miami.
