LeBron James and the 28-12 Miami Heat will face the 20-23 Boston Celtics, led by Rajon Rondo. The showdown takes place at the TD Garden 1:00 EST live on ABC. It is the second of three meetings between the two rival teams who met in the last Eastern Conference Finals. Dousing the flames to their rivalry is the fact that both teams are going in two different directions.
Before the season began, many NBA fans felt the Eastern Conference would be decided between these two teams as it did in the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals. While the Heat has lived up to the hype, the Celtics have struggled.
