The Miami Heat took a commanding 3-1 series lead and will look to close out the Eastern Conference Finals versus the Boston Celtics on Friday and book their berth to the 2020 NBA Finals.
While Zion Williamson and Ja Morant are destined for greatness several teams who selected players in the third through 12th spots of last summer’s draft have to be questioning how they let Tyler Herro drop to 13th for the Heat to scoop up.
In the Game 4 victory, he scored 37 points adding nine rebounds and three assists.
Jimmy Butler came out much more aggressive in this contest to establish the tone for his squad. He delivered 24 points and nine rebounds.
Although the Celtics made a late run they were fighting an uphill battle most of the game particularly iwth Jayson Tatum not scoring in the first half.
That he finished with 28 points, nine rebounds and four assists speaks to this talent. Jaylen Brown also had a big night with 21 points and nine rebounds while Kemba Walker produced was more productive for the third consecutive match scoring 20 points.
Marcus Smart delivered another double-double of 10 points and 11 assists. New Daddy to a baby boy Gordon Hayward scored 14 points along with seven rebounds.

Free Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
Through two rounds the Celtics were never in the downward position although the Raptors pushed them to the full seven games. They now find themselves in the same spot needing to win every game or face elimination.
In truth, the Celtics have more talent but the Heat depth is greater and a rookie (Herro) is proving to be the difference in this series. Miami coach Erik Spoelstra capitalized on the extra days’ rest with a great defensive game plan.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Celtics -2.5
That rest proved pivotal as the Heat looked fatigued in Game 3 but Butler had that extra zip he was missing in Game 4. Other than Marcus Smart the Celtics haven’t proven to have that killer instinct so whether it’s Game 5 or 6 this series feels likes it’s over.
I’m leaning to it taking two more games with the Celtics playing with the intensity of a desperate team in Game 5 and the key will be to not cough up the ball as turnovers were the difference in the Game 4 loss.
***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.
