Celtics vs. Raptors live stream: Watch C's aim for ECF berth


The Boston Celtics have a chance to eliminate the defending champion Toronto Raptors from the 2020 NBA playoffs on Wednesday night.

A victory for the Celtics in Game 6 of their Eastern Conference semifinals against the Raptors would send Boston to the conference finals for the third time in four years.

Sending the Raptors home won't be easy, though. Toronto is a well-coached, veteran team that often responds positively to adversity. We saw it earlier in this series when the Raptors lost the first two games and bounced back by winning the next two matchups.

The Raptors need to play a lot better than they did on Labor Day, though. The Celtics dominated Game 5 at both ends of the floor to take a 3-2 series lead, and if the C's bring that same effort and intensity to Game 6, it's hard to envision them losing.

The winner of this series will play the Miami Heat in the conference finals. Miami eliminated the No. 1 seed Milwaukee Bucks in Game 5 of their series Tuesday night.
