In what could be the game of the day the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat tip-off in a match with seeding implications between the squads.
Both teams have captured one victory and one close loss through two games of the ‘seeded’ restart. The Celtics currently reside in the third seed 2.5 games up on the fourth-seeded Heat.
The Celtics won both previous matches and are on a five-game win streak over Miami.
After an a-typical effort by Jayson Tatum in the loss to the Bucks where he shot 2 of 18 for five points, he bounced back in a big way in the win over the Blazers. Tatum delivered 34 points, eight assists, four rebounds two steals, a block, and five 3-pointers.
Yet the young Celtic who has impressed through the two seeding games is Jaylen Brown who delivered 22 points versus the Bucks. Brown followed that up with 30 points including six 3-pointers in the win over the Blazers.
Gordon Hayward (22), Kemba Walker (14) and Enes Kanter (11) were the other double-figure scorers.
Boston has been cited as a title favorite and there is a good reason why. The concerns are the health of Walker’s knee and the lack of size or depth at center.
Through two games the Heat are showing their depth, gritty defense, and cohesiveness. They took Toronto right to the wire in a highly physical match that could’ve gone either way.
However, Miami might want to have a word with the scheduling powers that be. This is the THIRD time this season they’ll play the second game of a back-to-back set the day after playing Toronto.
It’s also the second time Boston gets the benefit of that scheduling hardship. It seems slightly unfair it’s happening to Miami three times in one season.
In the loss to Toronto, six Heat players scored in double-digits including Jimmy Butler (16), Jae Crowder (16), Bam Adebayo (10), Goran Dragic (25), Kelly Olynyk (17) and Tyler Herro (12).
NBA Betting Trends:
- Over is 8-2 in Celtics last 10 games as a favorite.
- Over is 10-3 in Heat last 13 overall.
- Underdog is 20-6 ATS in the last 26 meetings.
Free Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
The loss to Toronto arguably came down to the perimeter. Miami ranks first in 3-point efficiency and fifth in defense of it while the Raptors rank fifth in 3-point efficiency and first in perimeter defense. Toronto won on both counts hitting 50% and holding Miami to 31.1%
Miami will need to flip the script versus Boston but do it on fatigued legs.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Celtics -3
Don’t hold this one against the Heat if Boston does what they should to a tired team.
If they can muster up the energy to man the perimeter and handle the transition they’ll have a shot but honestly their match Monday was one of the most physical of the year and couldn’t help but take a toll.
***NOTE*** In case you missed it…When the 2020 NBA 16-team playoff field is set, the NBA Playoffs will proceed in a traditional conference-based format with four rounds and best-of-seven series in each round. The 2020 NBA Finals will end no later than Oct. 13.
