The matchup will be the first time the two teams have met in a playoff series since the 2012 NBA Playoffs.
In that Eastern Conference Finals matchup, the Heat defeated the Celtics in seven games. Miami boasted LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh while Boston matched them up with Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen.
The two teams are totally different now.
Jimmy Butler is leading the charge for the Heat. He is averaging 21.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game. He also averages 2.1 steals per game. Goran Dragic is averaging 21.1 points per game, which has been a huge help for Miami throughout the playoffs.
Off the bench, Tyler Herro has been hot for the Heat. He will be the first person born in the 2000s to make an appearance in the conference finals.
The Celtics have been led by Kemba Walker and Jayson Tatum.
Tatum is leading Boston with 25.3 points and 10.3 rebounds per game. Walker is averaging 19.6 points and 5.3 assists.
This series will get interesting and has the chance to go the full seven games.
