BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- The NBA Draft Lottery is tonight at 8 p.m.

Celtics have a 2.9 percent chance of landing the second or third overall pick from the Lakers. Otherwise, the pick will go to Philadelphia and the C's will get a choice in 2019 from either the Sixers or Kings.

The real action's at 8:30 p.m., though, when the Celtics try for a two-games-to-none lead on the Cavaliers in the East Finals.

Celts coach Brad Stevens is hoping his guys are enjoying the moment.

"If you don't enjoy the challenge and you don't get up for the challenge and you don't look forward to the challenge, then, to me that's a big part of all this," Stevens said. "That's the fun part of all this."

Aron Baynes said the C's are concerned with more than just the Cavs.

"We understand now what it is to play playoff basketball," he said. "It keeps getting more intense every game. That's what these guys have seen, and they've been able to adjust to it very well. We're focused on a target as a group, and we're not satisfied yet, that's for sure."

Cavs coach Ty Lue said his guys have to execute better.

"I think missing shots offensively kind of carried over to our defense," he said. "I think we were soft defensively, I just think they took advantages of mismatches and we weren't able to get there. They were basically doing the same thing we're doing, but they executed better than we did."

Celts are 8-0 at home this postseason.
