Miami Heat Team News

The Heat entered this season with a loss at home, against the unpleasant Bulls. They were unexpectedly easily defeated in that match. Butler and company could not slow down Derozan, who poured 37 points on them.

Spoelstra and Riley haven’t changed much this season. Only the experienced Tucker left the team, but last season they got a lot of width and reinforcements in Strus and Vicent, who proved to be players who can meet the demands on both sides of the field!

Nikola Jović arrived as a rookie, who showed in the preparatory games and the Summer League that he will be a big reinforcement, but Spoelstra will not rush him. However, the most important link of this team is the duo of Butler and Adebayo. Jimmy played like a trance against the Celtics in the playoffs, but he still couldn’t just carry the Heat to the big Finals. Scheduled by Lowry and young Herro.

It’s the beginning of the season, and the Heat starts their engines a little later and time their form for the right one. Although the playoff matches between the Heat and Celtics were very hard and the results were Euroleague, we now expect “softer” basketball on both sides and more points.

Boston Celtics Team News

After a great last season, the Celtics again found a place in the Finals. This summer has been very turbulent and busy in Massachusetts. The head coach of the team, Ime Udoka, who did a great job last season, was suspended from the position of head coach. Udoka was replaced by Joe Mazzulla, who will continue according to the principal that Udoka has already appointed.

Boston entered this season with a couple of great reinforcements.

The team was strengthened by Malcolm Brogdon and Danilo Gallinari, who injured his ACL during the preparatory matches of the Italian national team. Former All-Star Blake Griffin arrived as his replacement. What is very important for the Celtics is that they brought in excellent signings on minimum contracts. Justin Jackson, and Noah Vonleh arrived, players who can bring great width in both directions off the bench. Brad Stevens did an excellent job and provided coach Mazzula with a very powerful team, which is young above all, but with a lot of experience already behind it.

Tatum and Brown are the main stars of the team, who carried Boston to the top of the East last season. The Celtics ground the opponents with their defense, and Marcus Smart and Rob Williams dominated in that segment. Smart was also named the league’s best defender.

They entered the season with a victory against their great rival, Philadelphia, and Tatum and Brown scored 35 points each and led the Celtics to their first victory. Even in the first game of the season, it was clear how much Brogdon’s presence will mean for the organization of the Celtics game.

Against the Heat, they will try to show everyone that the results of last season were not accidental and that this year the Celtics want to take a step further and win a ring.

Boston Celtics vs. Philadelphia 76ers Prediction

The Heat will play this match without Victor Oladipo and Yurtseven, while the Celtics will play this match without two very important players, Rob Williams and Danilo Gallinari.

The Celtics want to continue their good results from last year, the Celtics have a great defensive potential this year, but they also have more width than last year. Against Phila, they showed that they have gained a lot in terms of confidence and experience compared to previous years, so in this even match, the Celtics will be our choice.
