Who Will the Heat Play in Round 3 of the Playoffs?
As the 8-seed, Miami will face the No. 2 Boston Celtics in a rematch of last year's Eastern Conference Finals.
The Heat's third-round matchup will be a typical best-of-seven series that follows the 2-2-1-1-1 format. That means the better seed (Boston) hosts Games 1 and 2, plus Games 5 and 7 if those are necessary. The worse seed (Miami) hosts Games 3 and 4, plus Game 6 if that is necessary.
If the Heat beat the Celtics to advance, they would then head to the NBA Finals for the first time since the 2019-20 campaign.
