Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat live stream: How to watch the NBA online

It’s rivalry week in the NBA, and two of the best teams in the Eastern Conference will face off on Thursday night. Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics head to South Beach to play Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT on January 25. The national game will air on TNT.

The Celtics and Heat are on a collision course to meet in the conference finals for the fourth time in five seasons. Boston is the number one seed in the East, ahead of the second-seeded Milwaukee Bucks by a few games. Miami has between the sixth and seventh seed. However, Miami has proven that their seed does not matter if they make the playoffs. Last season, the Heat went to the NBA Finals as the eighth seed. Miami should have their newest acquisition from the Charlotte Hornets, Terry Rozier, playing against the Celtics.
