The Boston Celtics and Miami Heat will fight for control in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Here’s everything you need to know.
The Miami Heat used a huge 39-14 third quarter to help win Game 1, but they were outscored by 14 points the rest of that game and lost Game 2 127-102. Even though the series is tied as things return to Boston, the Celtics have all the momentum and a formula that seems to be working.
The return of Marcus Smart and Al Horford helped energize Boston in Game 2 and the pair combined for 34 points, 15 assists, 12 rebounds, 4 steals and 2 blocks. Miami, on the other end, could only really rely on Jimmy Butler for a reliable offensive creation. The Celtics will look to continue what works, while the Heat will scramble for some adjustments.
Tipoff from TD Garden in Boston, MA will be at 8:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, May 21.

Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics Game 3 Prediction
The Boston Celtics are a different team with Marcus Smart and Al Horford in the lineup, much more connected and flexible at both ends of the field. So far, the Heat have only beaten the Celtics in one of seven quarters in this series and needed an epic performance from Jimmy Butler to win Game 1. With the series returning to Boston, the Celtics should stay in control.
