Celtics vs. Heat live stream: Watch C's try to even series


The Boston Celtics will aim to even their Eastern Conference Finals series against the Miami Heat in Game 2 on Thursday night inside the NBA's Florida bubble.

The C's led throughout Game 1 and even held a double-digit advantage in the fourth quarter. But the Heat, led by Jimmy Butler and Tyler Herro, stormed back and forced overtime, where they won 117-114.

Heat center Bam Adebayo's block on Celtics forward Jayson Tatum in the final seconds of overtime was one of the most iconic rejections in playoff history, and it was the signature play of Miami's comeback victory.

Forsberg: Celtics need a better Kemba to beat Heat

The Celtics are trailing in a playoff series for the first time this season. They swept the Philadelphia 76ers in the first round and beat the Toronto Raptors in seven games in the conference semifinals. Boston was 2-1 after a loss in the Toronto series, and the C's will need another strong effort to even the conference finals against a confident Heat squad.
