Matchup Preview🏀

Miami, FL Saturday, 27th @ 6pm Est

  • On April 27th, we have a huge Game three in this tied series between the Celtics and the Heat, the heat have stole the first road game in T.D. Garden and now its clear this series is going deeper than we predicted. Nobody had Miami winning that game 2 especially in the fashion they did. Miami Heat set a franchise record for 3-pointers made in a single game in the playoffs! The Heat won the previous game 111-101. Tyler Herro and Jaylen Brown was the leaders for points for their respective clubs.

  • Tatum in a post game interview gave us this quote.... “We knew it wasn’t going to be easy. There’s a lot of history between these two franchises, especially recently. … It’s never going to go exactly as people expect it to go and that’s the beauty of it.” Sharing this quote with you because nobody is gonna take this team too the Finals if they aren't named Tatum. As a Superstar player he should not be taking this loss lightly and great too see him reflecting on the loss aloud too the public, he knows he will have to go takeover mode too steal a game back and take back the home court advantage.

-Miami Heat Team Preview

Projected Lineup: Tyler Herro, Caleb Martin, Jaime Jaquez Jr., Nikola Jovic, Bam Adebayo

  • The Heat are 32-30 against conference opponents. Miami is second in the Eastern conference in team defense, giving up an average of 108.4 points to their opponents. The heat are 6-4 in their Last 10 games while averaging 110.5 points, 42.6 rebounds, and 26.1 assist per game. The Heat will have the help of a great Miami crowd on Saturday and I see this being a tuff place too play for the visiting team in the home playoff debut. Expect the Role players too continue too get buckets as the home floor will give them a lift.

Team and Player Facts

  1. Bam Adebayo is averaging 9.3 Rebounds in the last 5 playoff games vs Boston.

  2. Caleb Martin scored 21,16,and 18 at home against Boston last year in the playoffs. His points line is set at 9.5 @ Fanduel.

  3. The heat have went OVER their team total prop at 96.5 every game this regular season against the Celtics(failed to go over game 1 of this Playoff series).

-Boston Celtics Team Preview

Projected Lineup: Jrue Holiday, Derrick White, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Kristaps Porzingis

  • The favorite to win this years finals has found theirself in a series here in Miami after finishing the season with the #1 seed. Boston needs too win one of these two on the Road. Boston knows that they cannot afford too drop two games in a row so they will watch film and see that they shouldn't give professional ball players open shots and put a hand up too contest. Boston is averaging 120.6 points and has outscored opponents by 11,4 points per game. The Celtics have kept a tight rotation with only 3 reserves touching the court including Payton Pritchard, Al Horford and Sam Hauser. Those three combined for 30 points on 52% shooting Game 1 and that performance decreased drastically Game 2 only getting 12 points total from the bench.

  • Luke Kornet has been upgraded too probable for this matchup but even if he is good to go, their may not be enough minutes too share as Horford has been the only substitute big man too enter the game.

Team and Player Facts

  1. Jayson Tatum has averaged 26 ppg the last five games at Miami.

  2. Kristaps went without a field goal behind the arch last game, (0-4).
