Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals is set for Saturday in Miami.

The Celtics could not close out the series Thursday night in Boston, leading to Saturday's showdown with the Heat.

Kyle Draper is a reporter at Comcast SportsNet New England. From Miami, Draper tells WBUR's Sharon Brody that the Celtics will double team the Heat's Lebron James to try to thwart his heroics.

James is averaging 34 points a game in the series.

The Celtics have faced seven Game 7's in the last five years. Boston is 4-2 in the previous must-win contests, including a home victory over Philadelphia one round ago.

This program aired on June 9, 2012.
