Meanwhile the Miami Heat did not show much in Game 3, they bowed out to Boston in a lesser struggle and intent compared to their Games 1 and 2 in the series. The team was only 39% shooting from the field courtesy of the Celtics’ suffocating defense. Center Bam Adebayo delivered 27 points and 16 boards, SG Tyler Herro made 22, SF Jimmy Butler made 17, while SG Duncan Robinson contributed 13 points in their 2nd loss in the playoffs. Miami leads at 2-1 in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Boston Celtics vs Miami Heat. The NBA Pick for this game is the Miami Heat +3.5. Miami made a comeback in Game 3 but failed to close out the gap in the final stretches of the 4th frame. Boston fortified its defenses and doubled up its offense with intent to avoid the 0-3 rut against Miami. Boston is a different team with SF Gordon Hayward back from an ankle injury but Miami will prevail with Robinson on the move to a predicted score of 110-104 to cover the spread.
