Heat, Celtics meet looking to avoid play-in fate

A two-part rematch of last year's Eastern Conference Finals may help determine whether the Miami Heat or Boston Celtics will avoid a win-or-go-home tournament to even make the playoffs.

Boston plays host to Miami on Sunday afternoon in the first of two straight home games against the Heat. The Celtics (35-32) trail the Heat (36-31) by one game for the sixth and final playoff spot that guarantees avoiding the play-in round.

The Celtics haven't done themselves any favors by losing six of their last 10 after a season-high six-game winning streak.
