ORLANDO — When Grant Williams and the Boston Celtics return to the floor Wednesday night, they will look to eliminate the defending NBA champions.

Boston, the NBA Eastern Conference’s No. 3 seed, holds a 3-2 advantage over the second-seeded Toronto Raptors in the Best-of-7 conference semifinals.

Boston, which won the first two games against the Raptors after sweeping the Philadelphia 76ers in the opening round, saw Toronto bounce back to even the series 2-2.

The Celtics have regained an upper hand in the series Monday night with a 111-89 victory in Game 5 at HP Field House.

Williams, a former University of Tennessee power forward played nine minutes Monday. He scored three points and dished out an assist.

He left Tennessee after his junior season in 2019 as the two-time Southeastern Conference Player of the Year.

The former Vol was a first-round draft pick by Boston in last summer’s NBA draft.

The winner of this series will face the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Heat eliminated top-seeded Milwaukee Tuesday night.
