While the Los Angeles Lakers were swept out of the Western Conference Finals on Monday by the Denver Nuggets, the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics are still fighting to decide the Eastern Conference crown.
Miami led the East Finals 3-0 and was fully expected to advance, but it lost the next two games by double-digits to make things interesting. Then on Saturday, it lost in gut-wrenching fashion, 104-103, on a last-second putback by Boston guard Derrick White.
LeBron James put up a cryptic post on his Instagram account that seemed to imply he had some money coming in as a result of Miami’s Game 6 loss.

Game 7 of that series will take place on Monday in Boston, and suddenly the Celtics have what seems to be an excellent shot at becoming the first NBA team to win a playoff series after trailing it 3-0.
