Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat, game between two tough rivals of the Eastern Conference. The Heat will be “home team” for this game. Yesterday, the Miami Heat lost to the Raptors by just four points. But that game served to measure forces. The Celtics finally won a game after losing the first one in July.
Boston Celtics: We have power.
The Celtics are third in the conference at 44-22. The first game after the coronavirus break was a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks 112-119. After that game, the Celtics won 128-124 against the Portland Trailblazers. The team still has six games to catch up on before the playoffs.
The team is averaging 113.2 points per game, 41.11 FG points, 80% free throw shots, 12.47 three pointers, 22.74 assists and 28.15 points per quarter. The defense allows up to 107.3 points per game, 38.44 FG points and 11.91 three pointers.

Miami Heat: There is no room for mistakes.
The Heat is safe in the playoffs. But it is not time to show weaknesses. The first game after the break was against the Nuggets 125-105. That victory was important to the team. But the most recent game was a loss to the Raptors 103-107 that cast doubt on the Heat’s strategy for the playoffs.
