Hanging by a thread.
That is the situation the Boston Celtics face as they try to salvage their season when they meet the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the NBA Eastern Conference finals on Sunday, September 27 (Monday, September 28, Manila time).
Down 2-3 in the best-of-seven series, the Celtics look to bank on the momentum of their Game 5 win hoping to drag the Miami Heat to a winner-take-all Game 7.
The Celtics would have already packed up their bags out of the bubble if not for the duo of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, who scored nearly half of their 121-108 victory in Game 5.
But the Heat have no plans of letting the Celtics survive again, with Jimmy Butler vowing they will come back better to get that series-clinching win. (READ: No blame game as Heat fail to close out Celtics)
Also, the Heat have not lost back-to-back games in the playoffs as they boast an impressive 11-3 postseason record.
Game time is 7:30 am.
