The Boston Celtics head to Miami for game seven of the Eastern Conference Finals, a showdown with the Heat with the winner moving on to the Finals to face the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Boston Celtics head to Florida to take on the Miami Heat Saturday in game seven of the Eastern Conference Finals. It's the Celtics second chance at clinching the series, as they were up 3-2 when Miami took game six behind a 45 point performance by Lebron James. Momentum in the series has swung back and forth, with Miami taking the first two games before the Celtics came back for three straight. Game seven is the only one that matters at this point, a last chance for both teams.
If Boston can win, they will immediately head to Oklahoma City for the NBA Finals against the Thunder. To do so they'll need to find some way to contain LeBron, whose brilliant game six forced the Celtics into the do-or-die situation in Miami.
