Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat FREE LIVE STREAM (9/15/20): How to watch NBA playoffs, time ...

For only the second time in NBA history, the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat will come together to face off against one another for a shot at the NBA Finals.

The two teams have both reached this point as underdogs, with only the Celtics entering as one of the top three seeds in the Eastern Conference.

Boston advanced after winning a thrilling seven-game series against the reigning NBA champions Toronto Raptors, while the Heat knocked off the top seed in the East, the vaunted Milwaukee Bucks, in just five games.

The Celtics had to fight until the very end to advance past Toronto. Boston won the first two games of the series only to watch Toronto roar back and tie the series up at two apiece. Boston then won Game 5, but fell in double-overtime in Game 6 to force the decisive Game 7. Surviving a third-quarter surge, Boston narrowly beat Toronto 92-87 in the series' final game to reach the conference finals.

The same cannot be said for Miami. The Heat had little trouble dealing with the Bucks, winning three of the games by at least nine points and dispatching the favorites in the east with just one loss on the ledger.

The only time these two teams faced against one another came in 2012 when the Lebron James-led Heat beat the Kevin Garnett-led Celtics in seven games. The Heat went on to win the NBA Finals in five games against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
