Thursday, January 10 finds the Boston Celtics facing the. Miami Heat as they meet for the first time in the 2018-19 regular season. The Celtics played the opening game of a back to back set versus the Pacers on Wednesday which they won. Miami last played Tuesday in a four-point loss to the Nuggets.
Last season, the Celtics took two of the three meetings between the squads. The Celtics hold the all-time record having bested the Heat in 70 of their 116 matches.
Prior to playing the Indiana Pacers, the Celtics beat Brooklyn in about as easy of a victory as the Nets have conceded this season.
Eight different Celtics scored in double-digits with Kyrie Irving leading the way scoring 16. Every starter and three reserves got into the mix as the Celtics collected 37 assists via excellent ball movement and equalized scoring.
In the win over Indy the Celtics had a similar positive result with 32 assists and seven players scoring in double digits.
Aron Baynes remains out until mid-month having fractured the left fourth metacarpal.
Boston is rising up the ranks offensively and defensively in the past month as they played numerous sub .500 teams. To start week 13 the Celtics rank fourth defensively, 10th offensively and they possess the second best net differential.
As has been the case over the past few seasons the Heat seems to be in perpetual flux given the injuries they are constantly dealing with.
Without Dragic, for example, the Heat are utilizing Justise Winslow as their point guard. To say the Heat are taking an untraditional approach to their system and lineups would be an understatement.
Then again, Head Coach Erik Spoelstra is a master of the untraditional. Like a few other clubs, he’s utilizing zone defenses to allow his squad to stay in games.
Dion Waiters is back in the lineup and most of their players have returned. Now the Heat needs to figure out how to win at home and against the East.
Goran Dragic is healing from arthroscopic right knee surgery which will keep him out up to two months or until mid-February.

Free Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
Not surprising the Celtics get the nod in the spread but its so minor it’s basically saying this is a coin toss on who’ll win. For that reason, I’d expect a close game.

Still, the Heat is rested and while Miami isn’t above .500 at home the Celtics are just .500 on the road.
