NBA Betting Predictions Boston Celtics vs Miami Heat
Tonight is game four in Boston where the Celtics try to even the series when they host the Miami Heat. BetDSI Sportsbook current live lines display the Heat a -125 favorite giving up -1 ½ point to the Celtics.
In game three the Boston Celtics played much better than they did in Miami shooting .500 from the floor and hitting 5-17 three-point attempts. They kept turnovers lower with 12 and pounded the Heat when it came to rebounds 44-32. If they can control the glass like they did the other day they should have a good shot of knotting the series.
Kevin Garnett led the Celtics in scoring with 24 points on 10 for 16 shooting and also led the game with 11 rebounds. Paul Pierce put up 23 points but did it the hard way going 7 for 21 from the floor and 2 of 6 from behind the arc. Rajon Rondo had a great game going 9-16 made 21 points and 10 assists. Marquis Daniels provided the most help from the bench with 9 points on 4-6 from the paint and 5 rebounds.
The Miami Heat offense scored nearly at will and if were not pummeled in the rebound department and hit more than half their 20 free throws may have won with 49% shooting from the floor. They gave up the rock one less time than Boston so turnovers were not an issue it was all about getting beaten up at the glass.
Lebron James led the contest with 34 points going 16-26 from the floor with 8 rebounds, and 5 assists. Dwayne Wade had 18 points on 9 for 20 shooting, 4 assists, and a steal while Mario Chalmers had 14 going 5 for 11 and hitting 1-2 behind the arc. Mike Miller led the bench in scoring with 11 points on .500 shooting and made 6 rebounds.
NBA Betting Predictions Boston Celtics vs Miami Heat: I am surprised to see the Heat favored on the road after how well the Boston played in game three at home. I look for the Celtics to repeat that performance tonight grabbing a win to tie the series at two games a piece.
