MIAMI -- Welcome to AmericanAirlines Arena, where the Celtics will take on the Miami Heat at 7 p.m. The Heat lead the best-of-seven series, 3-1.

The second team bus carrying most of the Celtics players just arrived here at the arena. Carlos Arroyo -- who used to play with the Heat -- was greeted like a visiting head of state by various staff members here. The rest of the Celtics, however, will not be greeted so warmly tonight. There are shirts on every seat reading "Beat Boston". It's flattering, I guess, in the way that "Beat LA" is flattering to the Lakers because it signifies them as a rival.

Plenty of storylines tonight, with possible outcomes including the end of an era, a suddenly exciting 3-2 series, or something in between. Back with more updates in a bit.
