Celtics vs Heat Game 3 predictions

Sports analysts must be gasping for air now because the majority of them predicted Miami to win on Thursday. These predictions were saying that the game would come down to 4-5 points, with the Heat winning in the end. Yet the sudden returns of Boston starters Al Holford and Marcus Smart tipped the scales, so much so that the Celtics won by 25. Smart was also the best player on the court in Game 2. This is troubling for the Heat because they now have to go to Boston and returning to Miami without a win would be very dangerous. Who was the weakest link for the Heat? Bam Adebayo. He’s a good center but his consistency is very random. Let’s see the Game 3 predictions for the Celtics vs Heat now.

Derrick White will most likely return to the starting lineup for Boston on Saturday. Nik Stauskas is also expected to be back. Additionally, Sam Hauser’s status is still unclear but the Celtics got plenty of firepower to deal with the Heat. On the contrary, Kyle Lowry of the Heat has missed most of their playoff games this season and this is a sign of concern. There’s no cause for panic yet but Lowry needs to return as soon as possible. When put against each other, Boston’s gritty defense seems to have the edge over Miami’s. In short, our Game 3 predictions of the Celtics vs Heat are the following. Boston is winning on Saturday and Tatum will also score 23.5+ points. Smart’s steal count will also be above 0.5. Butler will go 23.5+ as well, while Bam should have at least one block in the game.
