The Heat and the Celtics are both trying to capture the Eastern Conference title. They'll meet in Game 2 on Wednesday night.
On Wednesday, the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat will meet up in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference final. The Heat currently hold a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series and are attempting to make it back to the NBA Finals in hopes of capturing the league title.
While the Celtics may have experience on their side in Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett, the Heat have perhaps the more dangerous team core in league MVP LeBron James and the white-hot Dwyane Wade. The Heat had little trouble picking up the win in Game 1; they'll hope their home court is as kind to them on Wednesday night.
Wednesday's Game 2 will tip off at 8:30 p.m. ET and will be televised nationally on ESPN.
