Celtics vs Heat Score: Live NBA Playoff updates as Boston looks to bounce back against Miami in Game 3


After a 14-point comeback in Game 1, the Heat returned 17 points in Game 2 Thursday for a 106-101 win to take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference final. While there is still plenty of basketball to play, the Celtics took another double-digit first-half lead on Saturday night. We’ll see if they can keep this one.The Heat have a 2-0 lead in the series for the 11th time under coach Erik Spoelstra. They have won the previous 10 instances. In addition, the Heat are 16-0 all-time in the playoffs taking a 2-0 lead. Boston is 2-15 all-time in the series after falling behind 0-2. For Miami, the stakes are pretty clear as they can push the Celtics to the brink of elimination with a win on Saturday night.

For Boston, it’s pretty straightforward. Win at all costs. No NBA team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit in a best-of-seven series before and Brad Stevens and Co. would certainly prefer not to take on that kind of challenge against an offense as dangerous as Miami’s.
