Jimmy Butler's clutch shots in the fourth quarter and overtime led the Miami Heat to a Game 1 win over the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals, but it was Bam Adebayo's monster block at the end of overtime that will go down as the signature play.

Celtics forward Jayson Tatum drove to the basket with his team trailing 116-114 and just a few seconds left on the clock in OT. Tatum got to the rim, but he was denied in emphatic fashion by Adebayo, who blocked the shot to help seal Miami's 117-114 win.
