Argentina superstar Lionel Messi and his Inter Miami teammates Luis Suarez, Sergio Busquets, and Jordi Alba paid a visit to the Kaseya Center in Florida to watch the NBA playoffs Game 4 between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics in the Round 1. The Inter Miami FC mates were accompanied by their friends and families.

Lionel Messi has been in exceptional form this season playing for Inter Miami taking his goal tally this season to 11 in 10 appearances. Along with him, his former Barcelona mates are also enjoying their stint with the MLS side as Gerardo Martino’s side eyes a playoff spot which could earn them the ultimate stage of MLS glory. 

The legendary group who arrived in the player’s parking garage entered the arena through the VIP entrance as they made their way to the stands. This was Messi’s first appearance in the Miami Heat’s game in the NBA since he started his stint with Miami FC last year.

However, the presence of Messi and other stars didn’t inspire their NBA side as they went down to Boston Celtics with an 88-102 margin in the fourth game of the playoffs round 1. With this defeat, the heats are now trailing by 1-3 in the playoffs and another defeat could hand them defeat in round 1.

For the home side, center Bam Adebayo managed to scalp out the good numbers as he returned with 25 points followed by Tyler Herro and Caleb Martin’s 19 and 18 points respectively.
