For the first time in a very long time no Boston sports teams were in action. The Bruins were eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs over a month ago, the Red Sox had an off day in Boston before taking on the Rays tonight at Fenway, and the Celtics traveled to Miami for Game 5 of their series with the Heat, which is tied at two games apiece.
With the series tied at two, it is now a best-of-three series, with the winner advancing to the NBA Finals. Game 5 is tonight at 8:30 airing on ESPN, with local pre and postgame coverage on CSN.
