Miami Heat Form

Miami head to Boston knowing they must snap a three-game losing skid to make the NBA Finals.

The Heat upset Milwaukee 4-1 and New York 4-2 to make it to the Eastern Conference Finals, and looked to be closing in on another huge upset when they took a 3-0 series lead against Boston.

They stunned their hosts by winning back-to-back games at TD Garden to start the series, 123-116 and 111-105.

Miami then returned home for a 128-120 victory that put them on the brink of a place in the NBA Finals. 

The Heat have failed to clinch though, losing 116-99, 110-97 and 104-103, and that means they now face a winner-takes-all trip to Boston.

Boston Celtics Form

Boston have come roaring back in this series and are now just one win away from the NBA Finals.

The Celtics battled past Atlanta, 4-2, and Philadelphia, 4-3, to set up this Eastern Conference Finals clash with Miami.

Their postseason dream appeared to be all but over when they lost their first three games against the Heat, 123-116 and 111-105 at home, and 128-102 on the road.

That left Boston with the challenge of trying to become the first team to ever come back from 3-0 down to win an NBA playoff series.

The Celtics have completed the first three steps of that mission, sandwiching a 110-97 home win with 116-99 and 104-103 road wins.
