Celitcs lead series 3-2
The Boston Celtics will look to close out the Eastern Conference Finals tonight as the Miami Heat look to even the series and force a Game 7. The Heat know what they’re in for at the Garden.
“We plan to win the ballgame. We’ve got to win. That’s all we’ve got to do,” Dwayne Wade said Wednesday before the Heat returned to Boston. “Can’t listen to the noise. I’m not. I’m sure our team is not. We’re just focused on winning this ballgame.”
For the home team Celtics, the onus is on them to secure another run at a championship trophy as soon as possible.
“We have one home game left, and that’s it in this series,” coach Doc Rivers said Wednesday. “We have to understand that, and we have to come with that sense of urgency. Our guys understand that, and I think so does Miami.”
The Heat and the Celtics tip it up at 8 p.m.
