Boston Celtics pound injured Miami Heat

The Boston Celtics bounced back in a huge way as they pounded the Miami Heat in Game 4 to set up a pivotal Game 5 (in Miami) in the Eastern Conference Finals.

It was evident minutes into Game 4 just what kind of night it was going to be for the Miami Heat.

The Heat didn’t score a field goal until more than past the midway point of the first quarter and the Boston Celtics got off to the fast start in which they needed to

And Boston never let their foot off the gas. The Celtics cruised to a 20-point victory to tie the Eastern Conference Finals at 2-2. It will now be a best-of-three series for a trip to the NBA Finals on the line for the Heat and Celtics.

Heading into a pivotal Game 5, there is plenty on the line for both teams. For the Heat, falling short of the NBA Finals would put this team in a bind heading into the offseason. This is a relatively old team and this year was all about getting back to the Finals.
