The Miami Heat and Boston Celtics are set to face off in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals Monday with a spot in the NBA Finals on the line. The Heat are hoping to avoid a complete collapse after being up 3-0, while the Celtics are trying to make NBA history and become the first team to successfully complete a reverse sweep. Tipoff from TD Garden in Boston is set for 8:30 p.m. ET and the game will air on TNT.

The Heat find themselves in a do-or-die situation after being up comfortably in this series. Jimmy Butler continues to be phenomenal and made three critical free throws late in Game 6 to give Miami the lead but the Heat couldn’t close out the final possession successfully. The No. 8 seed is in real danger of being on the wrong side of history, and it’ll largely be up to Butler to propel this group to a road win in Game 7.

After being lost for three games, the Celtics have rallied behind better three-point shooting, more connected defense and some very timely buckets. Derrick White’s late tip helped the team win Game 6 to level the series. The Celtics are the fourth team to come back from a 3-0 deficit to force Game 7, and they’re the only team in that situation who will get that Game 7 at home. Will that be enough for a return trip to the Finals?
