The Boston Celtics saved their season again Thursday night, beating the Miami Heat, 110-97, in Game 5 of the NBA Eastern Conference finals to send the series back to Miami for a gigantic Game 6 on Saturday night.
The Celtics came out flying and were never in any real danger of losing in front of their electric home crowd. Four of their starters, including Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, finished with over 20 points in what was a balanced and dominant showing from Boston.
The Celtics are trying to become the first team in NBA history to come back from a 3-0 playoff deficit. Following the game Brown offered a warning to the Heat, saying they better not let them win another game.
