Celtics seeking revenge tonight

After losing Game 1, Boston wants to win their 3rd Game 2 in this Playoff to tie the series before going to Miami


ThePicks

The Western Conference Finals had Game 2 last night. Tonight it is time for the Eastern Conference Finals to have Game 2 as the Boston Celtics are seeking revenge at home versus the Miami Heat. Meanwhile, the visitors are trying to shock the NBA world once again and open a 2-0 advantage in the series.

So far in this postseason, the Miami Heat won the three Game 1s they played. On the other hand, the Boston Celtics won their previous two Game 2s, and are trying to also win the third. If that happens, Games 3 and 4, in Miami, will begin with the series tied in 1-1. If not, the Heat will have the chance to close the series at home.

The first game in this series was great. Jimmy Butler had himself another great performance in the Playoffs this season. Jayson Tatum, however, was not as good as he could be. The Celtics need to play better if they want to win and avoid being swept. Can they win tonight?

Injury Report

The Boston Celtics had the return of Danilo Gallinari these last days. However, he is ruled out of this game as he keeps his recovery. Malcolm Brogdon is also on the list, with a forearm injury, but should play. On the Heat’s side, Omer Yurtseven is listed as questionable due to a nose contusion.
