What channel is Celtics vs. Heat on today? Time, TV schedule, live stream for Game 5 of 2024 NBA Playoffs series | Sporting News



The Celtics will look to close out their first-round series against the Heat in Game 5 on Wednesday night from TD Garden.

After losing Game 2 at home, Boston mounted an emphatic response, winning the next two games on the road in convincing fashion. In Game 4 on Monday night, Derrick White sparked the Celtics with a 38-point performance; White splashed home eight 3-pointers in the 14-point Boston win.

But all isn’t rosy for the Celtics amid injury concerns surrounding 7-3 big man Kristaps Porzingis. The veteran forward departed Monday’s game with what the team is calling a right calf injury, placing his status in doubt for the rest of the series. 

In order to keep its season alive, Miami will have to rediscover its offense, which has struggled in the absence of star forward Jimmy Butler. After draining 23 3-pointers and notching 111 points in Game 2, the Heat were held below 90 points in each of the last two games.

Bam Adebayo poured in a 25-point, 17-rebound double-double in Game 4, but the Heat shot just 9-of-33 from beyond the arc in the loss.
