The Miami Heat host the Boston Celtics at the FTX Arena for a match in which they are favored to take down the leaders in the east. With a 35-13 record, Boston currently sits comfortably atop the Eastern Conference, 5 wins ahead of their nearest opposition in Philly and Milwaukee. 5 positions down is Miami who are 3-2 in their last 5 matches but poised to take Boston down tonight according to oddsmakers worldwide.
Boston is riddled with injuries tonight, Danilo Gallinari is out and Robert Williams III, Marcus Smart, Malcolm Brogdon and Al Hordford are all listed as doubtful. With Smart leading Boston in assists and steals, the pressure is on forward guard Jayson Tatum to further the Celtics’ offensive tonight. Miami isn’t at 100% either, they’re missing Duncan Robinson, Nikola Jovic and Omer Yursteven but their key player in Bam Adebayo is on and on fire leading the team in rebounds and blocks in addition to his 54% field goal percentage.
Boston fell short against none other than the Orlando Magic last night in this trip to the southeast but were in excellent shape prior to that, stealing away narrow wins against Toronto and Golden State after pummeling Charlotte, Brooklyn and New Orleans the past few weeks.
Miami, on the other hand, come from beating New Orleans 100-96 on Sunday but were put down by the Dallas Mavericks on Friday. Whether the rest day in between will help them overtake Boston is yet to be seen but the odds point at a similar result than the last time these two teams faced each other back in early December when the Heat came out victorious 120-116, outperforming Boston in the 4th quarter. A win helps Miami infiltrate the top positions of the Eastern Conference so stay tuned to see what our cappers have in mind for this match in Florida.
