Match Predict – Handicap (-5) for Celtics
After the two games they played, it looked as if the Miami Heat was lacking in strength. In the first meeting, the team was noticeably inferior at the start. However, in the second meeting, they fell apart altogether. Now the Heat travel to the TD Garden, where it won’t be easy to take away the points.
The Boston Celtics never let up and they’ve set a fine example of how to fight to the end. The loss did not crush Ime Udoka’s team, but the Celtics became even more aggressive, and that’s why they’re in a better position.

We can say that the Celtics are in their best shape yet. They left no chance for the Brooklyn Nets in the first round of the playoffs and then knocked the Milwaukee Bucks out of the competition, although they needed to play seven games to do it. Ime Udoka’s men deservedly advanced to the Eastern Conference final.

The Heat did their best to clinch the top spot in the Eastern Conference, so you could imagine the form and attitude the boys were in as they approached the play-off stage. The team was able to deal with the Atlanta Hawks (4-1) and Philadelphia 76ers (4-2).
The bookmakers gave a minimal preference to Miami in the East final and the club really showed character in the first game of the series. Jimmy Butler simply tore through Boston’s defence, which was one of the main reasons for the victory (118-107). However, after Game 2, the score in the encounter is tied (1-1). The Heat was unable to strengthen their lead before the away series.
In the second game of the series, Jimmy Butler scored 29 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists.
