Celtics Looking to Claim Big Advantage

The Boston Celtics were far and away the best team in the National Basketball Association during the regular season. Only the Pacers scored more points than they did. The Celtics made the most three pointers as well, with 16.5 per game. In the game three wins, the Celtics made just 11, but it was plenty.

Jayson Tatum was the top scorer for the Celtics in the game. He and Jaylen Brown both scored 22 in the game. Tatum during the regular season scored 26.9 per game, while Brown was right around 23 per game. Kristaps Porzingis is third on the team with 20.1 per game.

Boston will look to win their second straight in Miami, and become one win away from the second round. Their second round opponent is either going to be the Orlando Magic or Cleveland Cavaliers. A season ago, the Celtics lost in Game 7 to the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Miami Heat missing ButlerĀ 

The Miami Heat won the play-in game against the Bulls but lost their best player in that win. Jimmy Butler was lost near the end of that game, and that meant 20.8 points per game gone for the postseason. Fortunately Tyler Herro has been back for Miami, and is also scoring 20.8 points per game.

In the game two wins, the Heat saw all five starters score double figures in the game. Herro led the way with 24, while Bam Adebayo and Caleb Martin went for 21. The Heat also got 14 from the rookie out of UCLA Jaime Jaquez.

In the regular season, the Heat struggled to score at times. Miami was 26th in the league with 110.1 points per game. The Heat ripped down 42.3 rebounds per game, and dished out more than 25 assists per game.
