The Eastern Conference Finals return to South Florida on Tuesday night for a pivotal Game 5. After four back-and-forth games, the series is now tied at 2-2. Boston eked out an overtime win in Game 4 to pull level with Miami, getting the better of the Heat in the extra session of a game plagued by foul trouble.

Miami may be getting a huge boost with the return of Chris Bosh, who will likely be a gametime decision. Reports surfaced immediately after Miami's Game 4 loss that Bosh would suit up and try to give it a go. The definitiveness of those reports have tempered a bit, but the Heat certainly seem more optimistic than they have been since the start of the second-round series against the Pacers. With Miami unable to play a full and consistent 48 minutes so far this series, the return of Bosh would add another weapon along the frontcourt and go a long way towards stifling the Celtic momentum. Tuesday's enormous Game 5 will tip off at 8:30 p.m. ET

Game Date: Tuesday, June 5

Tip-off Time: 8:30 p.m. ET
