Miami vs Boston: prediction for the NBA match

On May 18, we will witness the start of the Eastern Conference finals, we offer our prediction for the upcoming match. Who will take the victory? You will find the answer down below.

Miami Heat

The Heat put up a great performance in the current season and earned a top spot in the Eastern Conference. Eric Spoelstra did a magnificent job, so it is not a surprise to see team's success in the playoffs. 

Miami easily beat Atlanta in the first round (4:1), but after that team had to face a much better opponent, Philadelphia. However, Heat came out on top once again (4:2). In the last match of the series the Sixers had a chance to level the score, but Jimmy Butler and co managed to withstand (99:90). Now team will fight Boston for the NBA Finals spot. 

Boston Celtics

Celtics had a turbulent season, but despite all of their struggles team managed to reach the Top-3 of the Eastern Conference. Ime Udoka managed to replace Brad Stevens eventually. 

Boston swept the Brooklyn Nets in the first play-off round, but the second series against the current champions, Milwaukee, turned out to be much more contested. Opponents thought that victory is in the pocket, but series went down to the seventh game, where Celtics put up a much better performance (109:81). Grant Williams and Jayson Tatum scored 50 points combined.

Prediction

Both opponents surely deserved a spot in the Eastern Conference Finals. Boston will have to start the third play-off series away from home, plus they are coming here after after an extremely difficult series against Milwaukee. Celtics won't surrender without a fight, but opponent will surely have a slight advantage. 

Miami will play at home and it is a big advantage for them. Heat are undefeated at home since the start of playoffs. We are expecting a classy performance from the hosts today.
