Celtics vs Heat Game 5 Prediction and NBA Odds
Celtics vs Heat Game 5 Prediction and NBA Odds: Boston Celtics is predicted to win the upcoming Game 5 of the Conference Finals against the Miami Heat.

It is turning out to be another thrilling story in the NBA playoffs with the Boston Celtics in action. The Celtics once again managed to level the series against the Miami Heat with a victory in Game 4. They have already done it 5 times if we talk about the last two rounds in the postseason. Ime Udoka’s men will look to take a crucial lead in the next game tonight.

The last win was a big one as they got it by a margin of 20 points. It was yet another stellar performance from the Celtics’ All-Star, Jayson Tatum. Tatum scored 31 points with 8 rebounds and 5 assists. The Celtics started dominating the opposition from the opening minutes and got a 26-4 lead.

They outrebounded Miami 20-8 in the first quarter. The Celtics were playing without Marcus Smart who is suffering from a right ankle sprain. However, Derrick White gave a good performance in his absence.

It is not going to be easy for the Miami Heat to bounce back after facing a crushing loss in Game 4. But they can’t afford to give away a lead to the Celtics in their home arena to avoid the extra pressure of keeping themselves alive in the contest.

Miami looked completely out of touch from the starting as they missed 15 of their first 16 shots. All the key players were found struggling. Victor Oladipo was the top scorer for Miami with 23 points. He also added 4 rebounds and 6 assists to his name. Jimmy Butler could score just 6 points, while P.J Tucker and Max Strus went scoreless.
