Boston Celtics vs Miami Heat: Preview

Boston Celtics and Miami Heat will meet tonight at 6:30 p.m ET for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals of the 2020 NBA playoffs. This exciting matchup will be followed by the ultimate thrill, as Los Angeles Clippers and Denver Nuggets are set to face off for a Game 7 right after. Here, you'll find everything there is to know about the game: head-to-head, match information, preview, and how to watch.

Brad Stevens' team held his own vs. the reigning champions and delivered when it mattered the most in Game 7. Now, their three-headed monster of Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, and Kemba Walker may receive a huge boost from Gordon Hayward's return at some point in the series.

The Miami Heat lived up to their status as a dark horse by sweeping the Indiana Pacers and then knocking down the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks in 5 games to come back to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 2014.
