Miami Heat Form


Miami must win Game 6 to take the series back to Florida for a winner-takes-all Game 7 showdown.

The Heat took an early lead in the Eastern Conference Finals, winning two of the first three games.

They opened with a 118-107 win at home and then responded to a 127-102 defeat with a 109-103 road win.

Miami have not won since Game 3 though, getting blown out in back-to-back games.

They lost 102-82 in Boston before returning home and losing 93-80 in Game 5 on Wednesday night.

Only two starters hit double digits in scoring as Miami struggled offensively all night long.

Jimmy Butler had just 13 points to go along with six rebounds and four assists, while Bam Adebayo combined 18 points with 10 rebounds.

PJ Tucker’s main contribution was 11 rebounds, while Kyle Lowry registered non points or assists.

Boston Celtics Form


Boston are one win away from a place in the NBA Finals after winning Game 5 on the road.

The Celtics have responded from some early adversity to take control of the Eastern Conference Finals.

They were beaten 118-107 on the road in Game 1, but bounced back to level it up with a 127-102 win in Miami.

Boston failed to build on that that, losing their first home game of the series 109-103.

The Celtics have not lost since though, putting together back-to-back commanding wins (102-82 and 93-80) to take over the series.

Jaylen Brown led Boston in scoring in Wednesday night’s win, putting up 25 points along with four rebounds.

Jayson Tatum played a key role too with 22 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists as he fell just short of a triple double.

Al Horford had 16 points, seven rebounds and five assists, while Derrick White contributed 14 points and five assists off the bench.
