Christopher Mintz-Plasse, AKA “McLovin” was seen at the Heat-Celtics game on Thursday night.
After the Heat turned the ball over during the fourth quarter, the camera cut to Mintz-Plasse, who seemed to be having the time of his life.

McLovin ended up being a good luck charm as the Celtics staved off elimination for a second time with a 110-97 win.
They’re now down 3-2 in this series after they lost the first three games of the series. They’ll look to force a Game 7 back in Boston if they can win Game 6 on Saturday night.
