Result: Miami Heat launch remarkable comeback to defeat Boston Celtics

The Heat were down by 13 points at the start of the second half.

The Miami Heat were again forced to stage a mammoth comeback in order to beat the Boston Celtics 106-101 as they took a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals.

Just two days after overcoming a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit to win game one, the Heat again found themselves with their backs against the wall after giving up a 13-point lead in the first half.

Behind a slam-dunk exhibition from Bam Adebayo, Miami exploded in the third quarter to ultimately outscore the Celtics 59-41 down the stretch.

Adebayo and Goran Dragic combined for 46 points for Miami while Duncan Robinson was a constant threat from deep as he finished with six threes.

Meanwhile Kemba Walker had a much-improved performance for Boston, picking up 23 points and seven rebounds to go along with 21 each from Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.
