Heat, Celtics ready for challenge of 1-versus-2 conference finals

The Miami Heat will begin pursuit of further Eastern Conference finals success when they host the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series.

The top-seeded Heat have prevailed in six straight conference final appearances, tied for the fourth-longest streak in NBA history. Two of those series victories came against Boston (2012, 2020).

The second-seeded Celtics have dropped four straight Eastern Conference finals, including three in a four-season stretch from 2017-20.
