Once again, the Miami Heat find themselves down 3-1 in a playoff series, but this time, it’s against the Celtics. After some great defensive play by LeBron James, and an off scoring night for Heat’ big man Nikola Jokic, the Celtics squeezed out a win in Game 4 to bring themselves one step closer to playing for an NBA championship. It would be crazy to think that the Heat could again pull off another historic comeback in the Western Conference finals, but then again, most of what Miami’s been able to accomplish over the past month and a half has been unprecedented.
The Celtics are still clearly the favorites to close out this series, but the Heat may still have something up their sleeves to make L.A. sweat a little bit.
Here’s everything you need to know about Game 3 between the Heat and Celtics.
Date: Saturday, Sept. 27 | 7.30 p.m. ET
Location: Disney Wide World of Sports — Orlando, Florida
Odds: Celtics -6 | Over/Under: 214.5
Celtics: When the game was coming down to the wire, LeBron took on the challenge of guarding Jamal Murray down the stretch to stop the Heat from pulling even in the Western Conference finals. Murray started to catch fire in the fourth quarter to fuel Miami’s comeback, and while it looked like his late-game heroics would once again lift the Heat to a win, James put a stop to that. Murray was held to just four points in the final six minutes of the game, and on several possessions where LeBron was guarding him, he failed to get off a shot, which in turn resulted in more points for L.A. to seal the win. This could’ve been a huge swing game in this series for Miami, but instead, when the Celtics needed LeBron the most, he stepped up and carried the team to a win.
Heat: Miami has been in this position before. In fact, it was just in this same spot against the Celtics’ Staples Center neighbors when the Clippers were up 3-1 in the second round of the playoffs. All of a sudden, the Heat found a way to rattle off three-straight wins to advance to the conference finals. Now, this squad will face that same test again, only this time, the Celtics aren’t underestimating them. Still, though, Miami has proven to be a dangerous team when its backs are against the wall, and that should be a little unsettling for the Celtics.
While the Heat are no stranger to playing from behind this postseason, trying to do so against the Celtics will be a different animal. Part of the reason Miami upset the Clippers was because that team grossly overlooked the Heat. The Celtics have not done that in this series. It’s entirely possible that Jokic has a bounce-back game, and Murray continues his incredible postseason, however, the Celtics seem locked in and ready to put an end to this series to advance to the NBA Finals. Pick: Celtics -6
