NBA playoffs: Celtics-Heat Game 3 live updates, scores, lineups, injury report, how to watch, TV channel

The No. 8-seeded Miami Heat took a stunning two wins in Boston to open the Eastern Conference finals. Now, the No. 2-seeded Boston Celtics must find an answer in South Beach before their season ends prematurely. Jimmy Butler is guiding the Heat with eye-popping stats, finding ways to win against the top East teams this season.

“I’ve said it all year long,” Butler said after Game 2. “We are going to ride with one another until the wheels fall off.”

The Celtics, meanwhile, need to find consistent shooting from their starters while the wheels are still at least mostly on. Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum and Al Horford have all struggled at times in this series and postseason.
