NBA Playoff Schedule And Update: Celtics Take A Game Against The Heat

The Boston Celtics hosted the Miami Heat in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Friday night and it appears they play much better at the Garden. The Celtics won their first game of the series by a final score of 101-91, largely thanks to a big fourth quarter. The Heat still lead the series 2-1, but the Celtics will try to even things up with another game in Boston on Sunday.

Kevin Garnett had 24 points in the victory, Paul Pierce had 23 and Rajon Rondo put up 21. LeBron James contributed 34 points to the losing effort.

Saturday night will see Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals:

San Antonio Spurs at Oklahoma City Thunder at 9:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. PT on TNT

The Thunder may be able to pull off another win at home, but the majority of pundits and analysts seem to believe that would be merely delaying the inevitable. It appears no one is giving Oklahoma City much of a chance to pull off the series win and advance to the Finals, regardless of how impressive they looked in their win on Thursday.
