Game two of the Eastern Conference Final is in the middle when Boston prepares to face Miami at FTX Arena.
The Heat made the first move of the series following a 118-107 win on Wednesday.
A third-quarter blitz ensured Miami took a 1-0 lead after it outscored Boston 39-14.
The heroics of Jimmy Butler cannot be ignored either, with the star forward burying 41 points, grabbing nine rebounds and passing for five assists.
It was arguably his best game for the franchise, and he has asked the question of Jayson Tatum to be the match-winner.
Tatum still put up solid numbers in the 11-point defeat, but no one else fired alongside him aside from Jaylen Brown.
Those lapses in concentration and form throughout periods will cost Boston dearly if they cannot be rectified.
It will be a challenging task for Boston to stave off Butler, who is in the groove.
