The Boston Celtics come into Tuesday's game against the Miami Heat having won seven of their last nine games to take the Atlantic Division lead. The Heat need to have the memories of April 1's 91-72 loss in Boston out of their minds as they play at AmericanAirlines Arena.
The Heat had their 17-game home winning streak snapped on Friday as they lost to the Memphis Grizzlies 97-82 but quickly rebounded at home with a 98-75 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday. Despite being without Dwyane Wade for the win over Detroit, LeBron James scored 26 points, Chris Bosh had 22 points and nine rebounds and James Jones tied a career high with six three-pointers.
The Heat will need that offense back but will also need some help containing Boston's Rajon Rondo who earned a triple-double on April 1 with 16 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists.
The game is scheduled to tip off at 7 p.m. with a national broadcast on ESPN.
