Tonight, when the Boston Celtics take the court they will have the chance to save the world from the forces of evil. Ok, maybe it’s not that dire, but this is still pretty huge by basketball standards. After winning game 5 of their Eastern Conference Finals showdown against the Miami Heat, the Celtics can send them packing and thus wasting another year of the Miami Heat’s championship window.
