The Boston Celtics pulled one back from the surprising eighth-seed Miami Heat, but will avoiding a sweep turn into an improbable comeback? The Eastern Conference finals is now a best-of-three series with games alternating between cities.
Game 5 is back in Boston and is another win-or-(stay)-home game for the Celtics. Game 6 in Miami would be on Saturday with a potential Game 7 on Monday in Boston. The NBA Finals, where the West’s top-seeded Denver Nuggets await, begin on June 1.
“We can’t relax,” Celtics coach Joe Mazzulla said after Game 4, per The Associated Press. “We have to keep the same level of intensity, the same mindset, the same focus in the next game.”
