Boston vs Miami: prediction for the NBA match
It is safe to say that Celtics are at the peak of their form now. Team left no chances to Brooklyn in the first play-off round and then also beat Milwaukee in a seven-game series. Ime Udoka's men deserved a spot in the Eastern Conference Finals, where they are trying to take down the Heat.
Boston were unable to keep the lead after an aggressive start by Jayson Tatum and co. Opponent managed to turn the things around (107:118). However, the Celtics bounced back after that disappointing defeat and levelled the score in the second match (127:102). Now is the time to host the opponent.
Heat did everything to secure a top spot in the Eastern Conference, so team approached the playoffs in a fantastic form. Team managed to beat Atlanta (4:1) and Philadelphia (4:2) in first knock-out rounds.
Miami are considered favourites of the Eastern Conference finals and in the first match of the series club managed to mount a comeback. Jimmy Butler was tearing apart Boston's defense and brought a victory to his team (118:107). However, in the second round the Heat failed to maintain the same level of performance and opponent levelled the score in the series (102:127).
Club managed to beat that total in each of five previous matches
Two previous matches started with three-point shots
After two matches it seems like Miami lack energy. In the first match team failed the start of the match and in the second one team was unable to avoid defeat. Now the Heat are going to TD Garden.
Boston are not giving up, team is ready to fight until the end. Ime Udoka's men will now try to play even more agressively, so they have every chance of walking away with a victory. In our opinion, hosts will satisfy their fans tonight.
