Celtics and the Miami Heat meet for Game 6 of their best-of-7 Eastern Conference Finals series Saturday at Kaseya Center. The Heat lead the series 3-2. Tip is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. ET (TNT). The Celtics slipped into an 0-3 series hole, but Boston hasn’t shown any signs of quitting. The C’s staved off elimination in Miami with a 116-99 win in Game 4 as 1-point ‘dogs and then routed the Heat 110-97 at TD Garden in Game 5 to force the series back to South Florida. They are attempting to become the first team ever — out of 151 tries — to completely overcome such a deficit.

During the first three games of this series, Boston was just 31 of 106 (29.2 percent) from deep. Through the law of averages, the Celtics should make it rain tonight. They’ve won on the road before, and they can do it again. Vegas likes the Celtics -3, and they will bring this series to seven.
