Tonight, at 8:30 EDT the Heat and Celtics will battle in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals on ESPN. Miami is playing host for the final game.
Riding an explosive 45-point performance from Lebron James, the Heat battled back to stay alive in Game 6 and denied the Celtics a chance to punch their Finals ticket in front of the hometown fans. In the final game of the series, both clubs are on the brink of elimination. However, the pressure to win clearly weighs a bit heavier on the Miami trio.
A loss tonight would ensure that the Heat fall to 0-2 in the chase for titles since uniting Chris Bosh and James with Dwyane Wade.
Bosh is expected to play, but likely won't contribute starter minutes thanks to the nagging abdominal injury that has cost him a great deal of time during the 2012 postseason.
