It may only seem that way.
The Celtics may have taken all three games from Miami this season, but in actuality, the teams are even. Both are 55-24 with three games left, the first of those coming on the Heat home floor against one another Sunday afternoon.
Teams with a No. 2 seed are guaranteed home-court advantage for at least the first two playoff rounds. But for Miami, Sunday's game has more meaning — the Heat simply want to find a way to beat the Celtics for the first time all year.
