Celtics vs. Heat live score, updates, highlights from Game 5 of Eastern Conference Finals

Another pivotal Game 5 is upon us.

With the Eastern Conference Finals tied at 2-2, the Celtics travel to Miami to take on the Heat for a series-altering matchup.

I’m sure you’ve seen the stat by now: teams who win Game 5 in a best-of-7 series that is tied 2-2 go on to win the series 82 percent of the time. With that being said, the Celtics did drop Game 5 to fall in a 3-2 hole to the Bucks last round, only to win two games in a row to advance to this stage.

The Heat face the pressure of possibly having to head to Boston with their season on the line if they can’t take care of business at home, while the Celtics look to avoid falling into another 3-2 hole.

Will Miami defend home court and put itself one win away from a return to the Finals? Or will the Celtics return to Boston with a chance to end the series in Game 6?

The Sporting News has you covered with live updates, highlights and more from all the action.
