After getting blown out in Game 2, the Heat need a response tonight in Boston. But the Celtics are back healthy after missing contributors for their series-opening loss. In the NHL, St. Louis will have a chance to grab control of its series against Colorado with a win on home ice. There are also a few great MLB matchups on the slate today, plus the Preakness Stakes and the third round of the PGA Championship. And one event that should definitely be on your radar is the women’s Champions League final.
A quick note: Due to COVID-19, sports schedules are fluid and subject to change.
Miami Heat at Boston Celtics
Games 1 and 2 of this series couldn’t have been more different. The Heat used a strong third quarter to pull away from the Celtics in Game 1. The Celtics jumped out to a strong start in Game 2 and cruised to an easy win with Al Horford and Marcus Smart back in the mix. After Boston stole home court advantage in Miami, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra will have to make some adjustments to get someone else other than Jimmy Butler going offensively.

UEFA Women’s Champions League final: Barcelona vs. Lyon
To set up this huge match, I’ll defer to SI’s Andrew Gastelum, who wrote a great Daily Cover story on the development of Barcelona Femení:
“As the most dominant soccer team anywhere in the world, Barcelona Femení is staring down a second straight UEFA Women’s Champions League title. Waiting in Saturday’s final in Turin, Italy, will be the original European women’s soccer dynasty: French power Lyon. It will be what Barça Femení manager Jonatan Giráldez calls ‘the perfect game in the perfect moment.’”
