The Boston Celtics head into Miami to face Hassan Whiteside and the Heat. The C’s are coming in rolling – winners of 16 in a row and red hot, while the Heat are coming in 7-9 on the season and losers of three of their last four. When these two teams played earlier this season the C’s won 96-90 in Miami in a very hard fought game where Kyrie Irving had to take over late to win the game for the Celts.
I do not see tonight being much different and I simply do not see how the Heat will score enough points to stop this tremendous streak that Boston is on. Kyrie is starting to look much more comfortable in a Boston uniform and coming off a 47 point night, I expect him to give the Heat a lot of trouble tonight as well. I like Baynes and Horford containing Whiteside underneath and the young guards of Tatum, Brown, Irving, Rozier to give the Heat troubles tonight.
There is one play and one play only tonight: Boston Celtics -3
The streak goes on!
