Boston Celtics bounce back, outlast Miami Heat in Game 7 to win Eastern Conference title

MIAMI -- Nothing about this Boston Celtics season has been easy. So, it stands to reason, making it to the NBA Finals wouldn't be, either.

But, at the end of a grueling seven-game series in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Miami Heat, that is exactly where the Celtics have returned to once again.

Behind a pair of terrific games from Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, Boston won its third game at FTX Arena in this series, escaping with a 100-96 victory over the Heat in front of a sellout crowd that was thrilled by the exploits of the home team right to the game's dying moments.
