After a convincing win in game number two in Miami, the Boston Celtics seemed to be superior to the Heat, but that all changed on Saturday night. Erik Spoelstra’s team came to “TD Garden” determined to bounce back and they did it. The Celtics opened the game very poorly defensively and allowed the opponent to make a huge difference in the first half. As has been the case countless times in this playoffs, the Celtics did not give up and they even had a chance for a big comeback in the fourth quarter, however the Heat resisted. Now, the pressure has shifted to the side of the Celtics and failure in game number four is not an option for them. Jayson Tatum played by far his weakest game in this year playoffs and we can expect to see his reaction this time. Derrick White also had a bad night after missing game number two due to the birth of his child. In order to win, the Celtics will have to show the intensity from the second half of the last game, with a much better shooting percentage.
“That’s what they pride themselves on is physicality. If we want to win this series, we’ve got to match that intensity. We’ve just got to man up.”https://t.co/V4hhwVbkFb

Before the start of the season, only a few people could have guessed that the Miami Heat would finish in first place in the Eastern Conference. In this playoffs, they confirm that their position is more than deserved. After an embarrassing night in game number two, they showed character and pride and break the Celtics in Boston, so now they have home-court advantage once again. In the first half, Heat took full advantage of the fact that Robert Williams did not play, and they constantly attacked the paint through Bam Adebayo and thus came up with easy points. The great fear for all Heat fans happened when Jimmy Butler got injured. Although he did not play in the second half, reports say the injury is not serious and Butler is expected to play in game number four. P.J. Tucker and Max Strus shot extraordinarily in “TD Garden” and a good percentage of their shots is crucial for the Heat in this series. This team did what they want when they came to Boston for game number three, but now they will have a chance to seal the fate of the Celtics with another victory.

Pick: Boston Celtics -6
Last game we had Al Horford Over 10.5 Points and he ended on 20 points, which is why they upped the line by a point. We still believe this one to be quite low and would have it around the 12.5 mark for the remaining of the series, simply because of how the match-ups work in this series.
Pick: Al Horford Over 11.5 Points
