Celtics vs Heat Game 2 Prediction and NBA Odds
Celtics vs Heat Game 2 Prediction and NBA Odds: Miami Heat is predicted to win Game 2 of the Conference finals against the Boston Celtics as per the latest prediction.

The Miami Heat will look to continue their dominance by extending their lead over the Boston Celtics in the second game of the Eastern Conference Finals tonight. A lead of 2 games will surely put a lot of pressure on the opposition.

Miami had a fantastic night in the first game against the Celtics. They were trailing by 8 points at halftime. Before the second half, head coach Erik Spoelstra’s locker room speech seemed to do wonders as his men turned things around in the next two quarters. Jimmy Butler was the shining star once again as he scored 41 points with 9 rebounds and 5 assists and continued his excellent form in the postseason.

The Boston Celtics can blame only themselves for losing the momentum in the final phase of Game 1. The absence of Marcus Smart and Al Horford was a big disadvantage for the Celtics. Smart was suffering from a foot injury and Horford was out because of health and safety protocols. Both the players are expected to return to the squad for Game 2.

Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown added 53 points together but they needed more support from the other players to avoid a loss. The Celtics need to be ready for another mammoth task against the Heat at the FTX Arena tonight.
