With the NBA Draft lottery tonight and the start of the Eastern Conference finals, we are in for a spectacular night of NBA action.
What time does Celtics vs. Heat start?
- Date: Tuesday, May 17
- Time: 8:30 p.m. ET | 5:30 p.m. PT
Quick Hits Preview: Tonight, the Boston Celtics have the chance to begin their campaign back to the NBA finals. They have not made the NBA finals since 2010. But remember that they were very close in 2018, where we saw the young future stars in Tatum and Brown almost hand Lebron James the first conference finals loss of his career. With the Celtics more experienced and looking like a defensive juggernaut, the Miami Heat may be up for an exciting and challenging task in this series.
For the second time in three seasons, the Miami Heat are back in the East Conference finals behind Jimmy Butler; this team looks like a formidable opponent for the Boston Celtics. The Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics have played each other three times this year, with the Celtics taking 2 of those games.
Prediction: Boston Celtics Game 1 Win by ten or more points. The Boston Celtic’s defense has looked to dominate in this playoff run as of late. Locking Down Giannis and Kevin Durant in the last two rounds. And, with the Miami Heat’s sometimes stagnant offense. It may be a challenge for them tonight.
