Miami Didn't Waste as Much in the Conference Semifinals
While Boston played seven games against Milwaukee in the second round of the playoffs, Miami was enough with six against Philadelphia. The extra days off certainly helped the Heat in the first game of the East Finals. Eric Spoelstra's team won fairly confidently from 118-107. Jimmy Butler had 41 points and 9 rebounds and was nearly unstoppable.
Boston Lacked Rotation
In their first game against Miami, the Celtics could not rely on Al Horford and their best defensive man of the season Marcus Smart. Boston didn't put up much of a fight in the absence of these important players, conceding 41 points to Butler and 118 total points. Working on defense is the key to success for the Celtics in this series. But we can only seriously consider Boston's chances for an eventual victory when Marcus Smart returns to the floor.
Expert Betting Tips
After losing to the Celtics in Game 1 of the series, Ime Udoka's squad is going to lead in Game 2. However, it's far from certain that Boston might win. Miami has a great rotation, with Spoelstra not overly experienced than Udoka, so the Heat are unlikely to give up home court advantage before moving the series to Massachusetts. The most important things in this confrontation will start there. For now, the Heat just look much more powerful. Prediction: the Heat will outplay the Celtics in the second game as well.
