The Boston Celtics are finally in the position they wanted to be in after going in an 0-3 hole against the Miami Heat.
Following a dramatic win over the Heat on Saturday night, the 17-time NBA champions tied their Eastern Conference Finals series, sending it back to Boston for the final match.
Everybody said the pressure was on the Heat to win Game 6 at home and advance to the Finals, but now the situation appears to have changed.
At least that’s what Charles Barkley believes, as he claims the Celtics are on the verge of making history and not accomplishing that would be a big failure.

The Celtics have played better in the last three games and have all the momentum as they head home to Boston.
Not winning game 7 would be considered a failure for them.
They are just the fourth team to force a Game 7 after being down 0-3, but the first team to play that Game 7 at home and not on the road.
Erik Spoelstra and Jimmy Butler promised that they will be better and be ready for whatever happens in Game 7.
It’s unlikely that the Celtics blow out the Heat as they did with the Sixers in their last Game 7, but this team has a serious chance to make history.NEXT: Derrick White Explains His Game-Winning Basket Against Heat
