Celtics vs Heat Free Pick June 5, 2012

The eastern conference finals are tied 2-2 heading into game five of the series tonight in Miami. The Miami Heat will take on the Boston Celtics to see which team takes a 3-2 series lead back to Boston for game six. Boston has won two consecutive games in the series, while the Heat took the first two games of the series at home.

Miami may get the services of Chris Bosh back after nine games. The Heat center has been out with an abdominal strain since the second game of the second round series with Indiana. However, his status has been changed from out indefinitely to day-to-day. The decision for him to play will be a game time decision.

Boston must continue to get the ball down low to Kevin Garnett who has been able to take advantage of Bosh’s absence. Boston also needs to get guard Paul Pierce into the flow of the game early. Rajon Rondo the Celtics point guard will be a key part of the offense, as he needs to penetrate and take his shots when available and hit the open man when he does not have a shot.

Miami must continue to go to MVP LeBron James and his backcourt partner Dwayne Wade. The two have been the majority of the offense for Miami since Bosh went down with his injury. Miami also needs to get help from Udonis Haslem, Joel Anthony and Mike Miller. If Bosh cannot play, the Heat needs to have someone step up, such as Norris Cole, who came through in the clutch for the team in game four.

Miami is just 5-4 SU without Bosh in the lineup in the playoffs this season and since he was acquired in 2010 to play with James and Wade, the Heat is only 12-11 in games he has missed, while they are 116-45 in games he has played.

The line opened with Miami as the favorite playing on their home court by 7 points. That has increased to the current line of 8 points. The total is just 179. Smart money bettors are taking the Celtics to win ATS, while they are going with Miami SU. The total will pay out to those who take the OVER.
