Eastern Conference Finals Open Thread: Game 1

Tonight is Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the #2-seeded Miami Heat and the #4-seeded Boston Celtics.

Boston has had two tough series against the Atlanta Hawks (4-2) and the Philadelphia 76ers (4-3. They are on only one day's rest from their conference semi-finals series against Philly, and Avery Bradley is gone for the remainder of the playoffs.

Miami is also banged up - Chris Bosh is still listed as inactive for tonight's game - and got to the ECF by defeating the New York Knicks (4-1) and the Indiana Pacers (4-2).

Boston won the season series 3-1. The teams played each other once in December (Miami's lone win), and three times in April.
