Derrick White set NBA Twitter ablaze on Saturday night after he literally saved the season for the Boston Celtics. Marcus Smart missed what would have been a game-tying triple in Boston's last possession of the game, but White came up with an unreal tip-in to force a Game 7 against the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Stars from around the NBA could not help but react to White's epic heroics in Game 6:

Much like the rest of the basketball community on Twitter, these players from around the league were left in awe by the manner in which Game 6 ended. It looked like the Heat had punched their ticket in the NBA Finals against Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets after Jimmy Butler gave them a one-point lead by hitting all three of his free throws in the preceding possession. The Celtics, however, had 3.0 seconds left to save their season, and Derrick White decided to step up in the most heroic way possible.

Momentum has been in Boston's side since they staved off elimination in Game 4, and they've continued to build on this win after win. That's now three straight victories for the Celtics, who have now forced a do-or-die Game 7 in Boston on Monday night. It's the Heat who are in a deep, deep hole at the moment after squandering three chances to close out this series. Jimmy Butler and Co. now have one final chance to book their place in the Finals in Game 7, but unfortunately for them, so do the Celtics.
