The defending Eastern Conference champion Boston Celtics are down 0-2 to the Heat. No team has ever comeback to win the the series down from 0-3 in the NBA history, which makes the Celtics today's game a must win for them.
James and Wade, the powerful duo has dominated the Celtics in the first two games. Wade had scored 66 points combining game 1 and 2.
Neither James (7-0) nor Wade (5-0) has ever lost a playoff series after being ahead two games to none.
Celtics hopes to have Shaquille O'Neal back on the court Saturday. The weary looking Celtics is expected to battle with all of their strength today and everyone knows that the experienced Celtics will never give up till the end.
And the Heat coach Erik Spoelstra knows this really well. They're a poised, experienced team that's been through it all, he said. And they've been through this before, where everybody's throwing dirt on them, saying that whatever it may be, that it's near the end of the line, that their guys have too many miles on those wheels.
We don't believe any of that, Spoelstra said. Every time you count them out, they come back with a championship response. That's who they've been. That's what they deserve. They deserve that type of respect.
Game 3 will be held in Boston's Home today at 8pm ET.
