NBA Betting Predictions: Boston Celtics vs Miami Heat
Just two nights ago the Boston Celtics were going into game six with all the momentum playing at home to seal the series. The Celtics lost badly 98-79 , now seems the roles are reversed with both teams traveling to Miami to determine who will go to the championships and take on the Oklahoma Thunder. BetDSI Sportsbook current live lines display the Miami Heat as large -455 favorites giving up -8 points at home to the Celtics in game seven.
The Miami Heat controlled game six with 48.8% shooting from the floor, 7 for 16 from downtown, and out-rebounded the Celtics by 10 boards. Riding the back of Lebron James who was unstoppable in helping his team to get back home for game seven.
James dominated for the Heat leading the game in scoring with 45 points on 19-26 shooting to go with 15 rebounds, and 5 assists. Dwayne Wade put up 17 points on 6 for 17 shooting from the floor, with 8 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 steals. Point-Guard Mario Chalmers had 9 points, and Chris Bosh led the bench with 9 total.
The Boston Celtics had difficulty hitting their shots from downtown as they only went 1 of 14 giving up a bunch of possessions and was a big reason for losing so badly. They shot 42% from the floor but also struggled from the foul line going just 70% on their free-throws.
Rajon Rondo had another excellent game scoring 21 points, serving 10 assists, grabbing 4 rebounds, and 2 steals. Kevin Garnett scored only 12 matching Brandon Bass while Paul Pierce had a rough night going 4 of 18 for only 9 points. The Celtics will need a better performance in game seven to have a chance.
NBA Betting Prediction: It doesn’t look good for the Boston Celtics tonight going to Miami, the Heat carry all the momentum after a beating them down in Boston. Don’t get me wrong the Celtics are very live dogs at +365 , but if they play at the same level as yesterday they haven’t got a chance, the Heat looked like a team that has something to prove in game six.
