The Boston Celtics have no more margin for error.
The Celtics are on the brink of elimination entering Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Miami Heat on Friday night. A loss for the Celtics ends their season, and there are a few areas they must improve in to avoid that scenario.
One of them is turnovers. The Celtics turned the ball over 19 times in their Game 4 loss, and that led to 17 Heat points. The C's also gave up too many untimely offensive rebounds and couldn't slow down Heat forward Tyler Herro, who scored a conference finals record 37 points for a rookie.
The Celtics have been a resilient team all season, including the playoffs, and they'll need to give their best performance of 2020 to extend this series another game.
