The two teams are set to clash between September 23 and September 30 with a place in the NBA Finals at stake. 
The Celtics, who are the favourites to reach the Finals, are currently trailing 2-1 in the seven-game series having lost twice against the Heat.

Jaylen Brown, the Celtics small forward, says team unity was key to their win over the Heat in game three having registered 26 points on the night.
“To be honest, I didn’t get much sleep the last 48 hours. I was so antsy to get back and play basketball," Brown said. 
"I don’t think the last two games exemplify what this team is about. So, I couldn’t wait to come out and be the best version of myself and try to add to a win.

“There’s some great guys in that locker room. A lot of emotion, a lot of passion. But we’re a family.  We are here for each other at the end of the day. So we exemplified that when we came out together. We stayed together during some tough moments.”
This is the fourth playoff meeting between the two teams, with the Heat winning two of the first three meetings.
