Miami rolled through its second-round series against the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks.
The Heat, led by All-Star Jimmy Butler, have one of the most well-rounded offensive attacks in the NBA.
Miami has played Boston three times this season, winning one of the matchups.
The win came on Aug. 4 during the NBA’s seeding games prior to the playoffs. Miami defeated the Celtics in that game, 112-106.
