Who would have thought that Boston would have the third best record in the East. Or that Miami would be right behind them.
If the objective of the rest of the season is to avoid Cleveland in the playoffs than this one has a lot of meaning.
I am looking forward to seeing more of Boston too, I have not been watching them that closely and probably should have been.
The Heat saw their three game winning streak halted by Golden State at home. No surprise there though they did enter the 4th quarter with a lead. (they covered the game)
Surprise, surprise they had no answer for Steph Curry. Thankfully Boston does not have anyone with the same sort of skill set.
In the win Dwyane Wade got off with 32 points, they need him more than ever with Chris Bosh on the shelf.
This might be a game to feature Hassan Whiteside a little more. He had a double-double off the bench for the Heat against GS and should be a matchup problem for Boston.
As the season progresses the Heat are getting more out of top pick Justise Winslow. He always bring defense and rebounding and his offense is pretty efficient.
Miami is the second best defensive team in the league which helps them have a winning record SUATS on the road.
Boston is just 2-2 since the All-Star Break. They have been good at home all season long and started this home stand with a win. This is a chance to fortify their position in the conference.
They will have to do so without Kelly Olynyk who is out for the next couple of weeks with a shoulder injury. That definitely affects their depth which is key to their style of play.
Olynyk may not be a great defender or rebounder but he is a versatile scorer who spaced the floor. Boston is fourth in offense but they might struggle without him.
Isaiah Thomas leads the team at 21ppg and must be excited after watching the Heat get torched by Curry. He can do some of the same things.
They are going to need Avery Bradley or Marcus Smart to keep tabs on Wade.
Boston will look to get this one into a back and fourth affair. They are the younger of the two teams and this will minimize their size disadvantage.
Still they will have to get Jared Sullinger and Amir Johnson to take care of the boards. Whiteside can be a monster if you let him.
Boston certainly looks like the play at home.
