Boston Celtics vs Miami Heat Preview & Betting Tips
Certainly, one of the most interesting clashes for the weekend is this one between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat. Both Boston and Miami are fighting for the Top 6 places in the playoffs in the east, and the interesting thing about these teams is that they both have a completely identical record so far this season with 35 wins and 31 losses. Another identical thing with these teams is where Boston and Miami have recorded 3 wins and 2 losses in their previous 5 games. Bradley Stevens' troops are certainly full of optimism before this duel because, in the last round, they totally outclassed the Orlando Magic with 36 points, 132-96. The Miami Heat, on the other hand, put an end to three tied wins in the last round, as they suffered a pretty convincing defeat by the Dallas Mavericks with 14 points, 113-127. Eric Spoelstra (Miami Heat coach) will not be able to count on two key players, namely: Tyler Hero (14.9 ppg) and Victor Oladipo (12 ppg), so I doubt that they will achieve a favourable result on this visit without these two players.
In the first meeting of this season, we watched an uncertain match between these teams, but the Boston Celtics won at the end by 2 points, 107-105. At the moment, the Boston Celtics look better, and they will have a complete lineup against Miami, so I think they are closer to winning this clash.
- The Boston Celtics has won 7 of their previous 10 home games against the Miami Heat.
- Although the Miami Heat has two consecutive victories, they have lost 4 of the previous 7 away games.
- The Boston Celtics will be in the full squad, while the Miami Heat will play without their two key players.
