The Eastern Conference Finals tips off Tuesday in a battle between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics.
While their opponents got pushed to the brink of elimination the Heat sailed through their semi-final series versus the Milwaukee Bucks losing just a single game.
The Heat roster is a perfect combination of youth and savvy veterans. But the real engine of this Heat squad begins and ends with Jimmy Butler who embodies the identity of the squad.
The Celtics arrive at the Conference Finals with tons of confidence and momentum having dispensed of a scrappy Raptors crew five games total in Orlando all to the Celtics.
Like the Heat youngsters the Celtics, two young wings have made huge improvements during the hiatus. Jayson Tatum is averaging a double-double in the postseason with 25.3 points and 10.1 rebounds.
He’s chipping in 4.3 assists, just under a steal, 1.2 blocks, and shooting 41.9 percent from deep on 6.7 attempts per game.
Jaylen Brown defense on Raptors primary option Pascal Siakam was key to winning the series while also contributing 21 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.5 steals per game.
Yet, guards Marcus Smart and Kemba Walker are the keys to victories. Smart is the x-factor who is the heart and soul of the team. However, when Walker underperforms the team has trouble winning.
No doubt the Heat will pay special attention to how the Raptors limited Walker to gain the same advantage.
Brown injured his groin in the closeout game but is expected to play Tuesday while Gordon Hayward nears a return but isn’t expected to play in Game 1.

Free Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
Boston won two of the three matches in the regular season although the Heat won their last contest played in the bubble seeding games. Both clubs will rely heavily on perimeter shooting and defense.
Although the Celtics have the more talented roster the Heat possess more depth.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Heat +1.5
Miami hasn’t played since September 8th while Boston finished their series on Friday the 11th. Thus the rust versus rest argument arises.
Miami also benefitted by watching the Celtics-Raptors series play out with the ability to see more games and utilize the Raptors defensive ability to apply to their own game plan.
Although I suspect the Celtics will win the series the edge in Game 1 goes to the Heat.
***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.
