Celtics vs. Heat live stream: Watch Game 2 of East Finals in Miami originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

After a disappointing finish in the opener of the Eastern Conference Finals, the Celtics came back with a vengence to even the series Thursday against the Heat.

The C's beat the Heat 127-102 in Miami.

A previous version of this story follows.

The Boston Celtics' resolve will be tested again Thursday night in Miami.

The Celtics dropped Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Heat on Tuesday night, losing 118-107 after Miami blitzed them with a 22-2 run in the third quarter.

Boston is 3-0 this postseason following a loss, however, and has won 10 of its last 11 games after a loss. The C's are also expected to get a boost from point guard Marcus Smart, who missed Game 1 due to a mid-foot sprain but is listed as probable for Thursday's Game 2 at FTX Arena.

Forsberg: How will Celtics respond after embarrassing stretch vs. Heat?

Al Horford (health and safety protocols) is listed as doubtful, so the Celtics will need big man Robert Williams to step up again after tallying a playoff career-high 18 points in 28 minutes Tuesday night.

The spotlight will also be on Jayson Tatum, who scored 29 points in Game 1 but committed seven turnovers and was outdueled by Heat star Jimmy Butler (41 points, nine rebounds, five assists, four steals, three blocks).
