The Boston Celtics are in a prime position to make history on Monday night.
No team has ever come back from a 0-3 deficit in an NBA playoff series, going 0-149 in that scenario before.
But they’ve completely outplayed the Miami Heat in their past three games, which is why Zach Lowe of ESPN predicts another comfortable win at home tonight for Game 7.

Lowe did admit that he’s not 100% confident in that prediction, though, citing that every time people start to feel confident about the Celtics, they seem to meltdown and crumble under pressure.
The Celtics did need a miracle to force Game 7, with Derrick White having one of the most iconic game-winners in the history of this league at South Florida.
That’s the kind of thing that makes everybody think that the Celtics simply cannot lose tonight, as everything seems to be going in their favor, even luck.
They should be heavily favored ahead of this game.
They’re at home and in front of their fans, and they have the more talented and deeper team, even if Malcolm Brogdon sits out with an injury again.
The Miami Heat have shown plenty of character throughout the playoffs, and Jimmy Butler will play like a man on a mission in Game 7.
But as much merit as he and his team should get for even putting themselves in this position after entering the playoffs as the No. 8 seed, they may not have enough left in the tank to keep this fairy tale of a playoff run going.NEXT: Brian Windhorst Has A Clear Opinion About The Greatest Comeback In NBA History
