Miami Heat vs Boston Celtics. The NBA has chosen the Boston Celtics for this matchup. Boston point guard Malcolm Brogdon is questionable for this game after playing only eight minutes the last time due to a forearm ailment. The Heat should put out a far more dedicated defensive effort against the Celtics given their last two victories, which included some scorching long-range shooting. It will be difficult for the Heat to stop Boston at this time in the game because of Miami’s injuries. Final score prediction: Boston will triumph 109-104.
