Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat CashBet Wagering Analysis

The defense of the Miami Heat led by Jimmy Butler is going to be the biggest factor for this series and he is expected to be guarding Jayson Tatum. This is going to be close and very hard to call with how both teams play and matched upper position. 

Tatum Proving He is the Next Big Thing

It was not so long ago that the Boston Celtics are seen as one of the most dysfunctional teams in the NBA. That thought is very laughable right now as this team stepped up to be at an elite level by beating the Milwaukee Bucks in seven games. Jayson Tatum stepping up to become a legitimate NBA superstar in this league helped and right beside him is Jaylen Brown who plays as his Scottie Pippen. Marcus Smart is the one responsible for waking up this team for criticizing Brown and Tatum but that is all water under the bridge as winning solves everything. 

Heat Itching to Get Back to the NBA Finals

The Miami Heat made it back to the NBA Finals during the bubble season but eventually lost to the Los Angeles Lakers. The team rebuilt their rotation and added a few key pieces around mainstays Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo and reigning sixth-man of the year, Tyler Herro. Victor Oladipo has been the biggest surprise as he was already canceled by many as a washed-up player. He has been given quality minutes as veteran point guard Kyle Lowry is still not expected to suit up very soon. PJ Tucker, Max Strus and Gabe Vincent have shown that they belong in this grit-and-grind Heat squad.
