The Celtics look to even the Eastern Conference Finals at one game apiece Wednesday night against the Heat.

It's time to make a stand if you're the Boston Celtics.

The men in green and white need to win on Wednesday night in Game Two of the 2012 NBA Eastern Conference Finals against the Miami Heat to avoid a devastating 2-0 hole.

Many are already counting the Celtics out after Game One which saw them lose handily. Multiple technical fouls resulted in jeers from the Miami faithful and players alike, while the most iconic image of the game was LeBron James laughing in Kevin Garnett's face repeatedly.

Head coach Doc Rivers has a tough decision to make with Ray Allen, who just can't play good basketball due to a faulty right ankle. Allen has continued to worsen down the stretch in these playoffs, looking more and more like a shell of himself. The problem is a thin bench behind him with Avery Bradley being gone for the remainder of the season.

Give Boston credit, it's giving all it has left. Unfortunately it's a tired team that looks to be on its last legs as it faces the most daunting challenge of the season.
