The Miami Heat are trying to stave off elimination on Thursday night as they head back to Boston to take on the Celtics.
The Miami Heat have lost three games in a row in the Eastern Conference Finals after winning the first two games of the series. The Heat are coming off a 94-90 loss on Tuesday night where the team limited Rajon Rondo to just 7 points, but the Celtics point guard picked up 13 assists.
The Heat picked up 30 points from LeBron James and 27 points from Dwayne Wade, but just couldn't seem to close the gap late in the game. The Heat picked up a double-digit lead at one point, but squandered it away with bad turnovers. Miami will be trying to stave off elimination on Tuesday night, but history has shown that's going to be tough to break.
