Call a Doctor

Both Miami and Boston come into this series with some concern about injuries. Although the Celtics will have big man Robert Williams in the lineup, Marcus Smart is banged up and is questionable for the early part of this series. For the Heat, the main concern is Kyle Lowry. The veteran will miss Game 1 with an injury and his status for the series is in doubt.

Celtics vs Heat 2022 Series Preview and Prediction

Heat are 6-0 at home winning by an average of 17 points per game and they were the best defense against the 3-point shot during the regular season. This is a team that wins with defense and has a gritty, no respect approach to shutting down the other team. The Heat is getting no respect from the experts who are all picking Boston to win this series. The Celtics are tired from a long and physical series with the Bucks and now have to travel on short rest to get ready for this series.

The best bet in this series is for the Heat to win and advance. Jimmy Butler is playing incredible basketball and Miami has one of the best coaches in the NBA. Bam Adebayo is the best big man in the series and the Celtics will struggle with the perimeter defense of the Heat.
