The Heat (55-41-1 ATS) went 14-6 SU in their last 20 games and are 4-2 ATS in their last six. The total has gone OVER in 10 of Miami’s last 14 matches against Boston, even as the Heat were 8-4 ATS in their last 12 outings against an opponent in the Atlantic Division.
The Celtics (53-42-2 ATS) were 14-5 ATS in their last 19 matches and 14-6 SU in their last 20, even as the total has gone OVER in five of Boston’s last seven contests when playing on the road against Miami. Boston took Game 4, 102-82, to tie the series despite the absence of injured guard Marcus Smart (ankle), who remains questionable to play along with Derrick White (hamstring) and big man Robert Williams (knee).
Miami got Jimmy Butler back on the floor in Game 4 but it was not enough to stop the Boston juggernaut as the series is down to a best-of-three showdown. The Heat hope to get Kyle Lowry (hamstring) and top reserve Tyler Herro (groin) back, as both players are questionable going into Wednesday’s game.
