Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
Miami Heat vs Boston Celtics 05/27/2022 – The Boston Celtics are a win away from advancing to the NBA Finals and there is perhaps no better way to do that than at home. After winning Game 5 in Miami, the Celtics can wrap it up on Friday. The top online sportsbook states that for the Heat, odds are heavily stacked against them. Although they were able to control the boards, the defense of the Celtics has been hard to crack. With their key players sorely absent, head coach Erik Spoelstra will need a superb performance from his ward to live and fight another day.

Miami Heat Betting
The Miami Heat are in a precarious situation as they need to steal back Game 6 and for a winner-take-all game in Boston. Jimmy Butler continues to be absent and it did not help that Tyler Herro was unable to play. Although they addressed the rebounding disparity, they lacked the teamwork to get things done last time out. But the glaring thing missing is their offense, both from the field and three-point territory.

Defense has been the key to the success of the Celtics so expect head coach Ime Udoka to continue doing so. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown continue to lead the charge alongside veteran big man Al Horford. Unless Boston comes out cold against the Heat in Game 6, this game is theirs to lose at home.
