As they are still alive, Boston is also trying the miracle of being the first team to ever overcome a 0-3
The Boston Celtics are closer than never to a miracle as they are trying to tie the series in Game 6. After losing Games 1, 2 and 3, they want to become the first team to ever overcome a 3-0 deficit in an NBA series. To reach that goal they already beat Miami in Games 4 and 5. Now trailing 3-2, Boston is playing their last away game in the series.
On the other hand, this will be Miami’s last chance to close the series at home. After two wins on the road and one at home, they had the chance to close the series 4-0, playing in Miami. Then they had the chance to do it again playing in Boston. As they missed both opportunities, this is the last game of the series in Miami.
If they can’t close the series this Saturday, they will have to once again beat the Celtics in Boston to avoid being the first team in NBA history to blow a 3-0 lead in the playoffs. Will the Heat advance in 6 or we will have Game 7?
Malcolm Brogdon played only eight minutes in Game 5 for the Boston Celtics with an elbow injury and finished the game with zero points. He is considered day-to-day and will be a game-time decision. On the Miami Heat’s side, Gabe Vincent, who sat out on Game 5, is also day-to-day with an ankle injury and will be a game-day decision.
The Boston Celtics live a better moment now and even playing on the road are the favourites for this game, by 2.5 points. The over/under for tomorrow’s game is low, set at 210.5 points. Check out our predictions for Game 6.
