Miami Heat +2.5. Miami has won and covered nine of their ten playoff games. They are shooting 46.2% from the floor and putting up 112.6 points per game. In the opener the Miami shot well connecting on 47.1% with 16 of 36 from three. Heat got major stop late in the overtime and Jimmy Butler was clutch on the offensive end. Celtics still missing an offensive piece as Gordon Hayward remains out. That is an issue as Boston is converting only 44.9% in the postseason. Heat legs look strong from playing only one more game than the minimum in the playoffs and can find open spots on the court for their sharp shooters. This is a Heat team that is second best in the NBA in three point shooting. Boston will benefit from a six or seven game series but early with plenty of speed in their legs take the points here. Play Heat +2.5.
