Heat vs Celtics Free Pick June 7, 2012

June 07, 2012

The Miami Heat is feeling the heat, but not the heat of Miami. Miami faces elimination tonight when they take on the Boston Celtics in the sixth game of their eastern conference best of seven finals series. The heat has been turned up on Miami as Boston has won three consecutive games to put Miami on the brink of elimination and a loss tonight could end another season in disappointment.

Boston used a key three-point basket and free throws down the stretch to beat Miami in Miami 94-90 in game five to take their current 3-2 series lead. As has been the case most of the series, Kevin Garnett was nearly unstoppable down low for the Celtics and finished with 26 points.

The Celtics also were helped by a strong game from Paul Pierce, who scored the late three-point shot over the out stretched hand of superstar LeBron James. Rajon Rondo had 13 assists to make up for a sub-par shooting night for the Celtic point guard.

The NBA’s MVP James and backcourt mate Dwayne Wade led Miami. Between the two, they scored 57 of Miami’s 90 points, but their shooting percentage was low as it took them 47 shots to accumulate their 57 combined points.

Miami will look to get Chris Bosh their center to get more involved at both ends of the court in game six. Bosh returned to play in game five after sitting out nine games injured. He scored 9 points in his return and grabbed 6 rebounds, but played just 14 minutes. His absence in the middle on defense has been noticed tremendously, as Garnett has had free reign in the paint without Bosh to defend him.

The early line had Miami as a 1 ½-point favorite visiting Boston and has not moved from that. The total opened at 179 and has stayed steady there as well. Smart money bettors take Miami to win SU and ATS tonight, with the total cashing out to the OVER.
