Celtics

The Boston Celtics will live to see another day after taking down the Miami Heat in a do-or-die Game 5.

After a sluggish start, the C's exploded for 41 points in the third quarter and didn't let off the gas pedal in the 4th. Jayson Tatum was the catalyst in the win, dropping 31 points to go along with 10 rebounds and six assists.

Also strong in the pivotal matchup was Jaylen Brown, who added 28 points including clutch back-to-back 3s in the fourth quarter. Enes Kanter was rock-solid off the bench with eight points and four rebounds in 10 minutes.

Goran Dragic led the Heat with 23 points on the night.

FINAL SCORE: Celtics 121, Heat 108
