The 2023 Eastern Conference Finals get underway today as the Miami Heat take on the Boston Celtics in TD Garden. Behind “Playoff” Jimmy Butler, the 8th-seeded Heat have scrapped their way to the third round of the postseason bracket. They’ll face their toughest opponent yet as Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown look to guide their team back to the NBA Finals. Almost nobody gives Miami a shot. Winning Game 1 would go a long way towards proving the doubters wrong.
