It will be win or go home for the Celtics tonight as they head back to Miami for a must-win Game 5 match-up against the Heat.
The Celtics are down three games to one in the series, which if history is any guide, does not bode well for Boston. In 199 tries, only eight teams in NBA history have ever rallied back from a 3-1 hole to win a series.
Now it's true, Boston fans aren't well-known for their optimism, but there is still some cause for hope: Of those eight comebacks, two were pulled off by the Celtics. And don't forget, stranger things have happened ... 2004 Red Sox, anyone?
With the Bruins and the Celtics on seemingly different playoff trajectories, we talk with WBUR's Bill Littlefield.
