The Miami Heat are a good team that’s worth looking at in the underdog role, and they’re capable of winning this game outright if they really show up. However, the Heat have had issues over the last week and haven’t looked good. Also, the Boston Celtics have been the hottest team in the league over the last month, and they’re winning their last five games by an average of 15.2 points. I’ve said time and time again that stepping in front of the Celtics isn’t a wise move right now. Give me the home team.
