Boston Celtics won the game 2 in Miami 127-102 to tie the series 1-1 after an impressive display to secure an home court advantage. With game 3 and game 4 to be played in Boston, Celtics will be looking to capitalize starting on Saturday.

Celtic went on a 17-0 run to end the first quarter by 11 points gap after trailing by double digits earlier in the quarter. They finished the first quarter 35-24 and led the game right till the end.

This was the third time Celtics will make at least 20 threes in a playoff game this season with Tatum (4), Smart (5), Brown (4). Smart and Horford returning from injury to feature in game 2 was important in solidifying Celtics defense and transitioning.

Heats are also having injury worries with Tucker, a vital defender, withdrawn from the game with a knee contusion and the veteran did not feature in the second half at all. Tucker, 37, is one of the toughest defenders in the league and you will still bet on him playing for the heat.
