For a detailed look at just how critical these games are for the Heat (and the Celtics) check out Diego Quezada’s analysis of the next two pivotal games.
This is the second time these two teams have faced off this season, with the Celtics winning 107-105 on Jan. 6. Jayson Tatum led Boston with 27 points while Jimmy Butler paced Miami with 26 points. The second game in their series, which was originally scheduled for Jan. 10 was postponed because of contact tracing concerns.
ODDS: FiveThirtyEight gives the Heat just a 37% chance to win the game.
