ESPN will host Sunday’s matchup between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics with tip set for 1:00 p.m. ET. The game will take place at the TD Garden in Boston, and will air on Bally Sports Sun in the Heat market and on NBC Sports Boston in the Celtics market.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this NBA matchup, you can stream the game via WatchESPN or the ESPN app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access ESPN for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.

The Heat will enter with a 36-31 record for the sixth best record in the Eastern Conference, one game ahead of the Boston Celtics. Miami will do all they can to avoid the play-in tournament, so this is a crucial matchup for both teams. The Heat have won four of their last five games. Power forward Nemanja Bjelica has been out four consecutive games with a stomach illness and is questionable.

Boston has a 35-32 record, which is the seventh best mark in the East. They have some work to do in order to avoid participating in the play-in tournament. Shooting guard Jaylen Brown did not participate in the previous two games with an ankle injury and is questionable for Sunday’s game. Center Robert Williams III is out indefinitely with a toe injury.
