Boston Celtics vs Miami Heat prediction

The Miami Heat are the ultimate troll team in the regular season, as they have countless ugly losses and then decide to show up in the big games just to remind people what they're capable of. So, while losing to a G League Grizzlies last night, it wouldn't surprise me to see the Heat win this game outright. With that said, the Heat have serious issues on the offensive side and I need to see things turnaround before I can back them in a spot like this. If the Heat from last night show up here, the Boston Celtics will win by 40 points. I have to lay the chalk with the C's.
