Heat vs Celtics: prediction and bets on 2021-22 NBA, May 26, 2022

Match info

In Game 5 of the 2021-22 NBA Playoffs – Eastern Conference Finals, which begins on Wednesday, May 25 at 8:30 p.m. local time (Thursday, May 26, at 3:30 a.m. Moscow time) at FTX Arena in Miami, Florida, the 2nd-seed Boston Celtics is a slight favorite over the top-seed Miami Heat on top bookmakers for the NBA betting. The series is now deadlocked at 2-2. The game’s over/under are also markets to consider if you choose to bet on this match. Especially, consider totals over 210.5 as an option.

Meeting statistics

The Miami Heat and Boston Celtics are knotted 2-2 in the NBA Eastern Conference finals. Each team won once at home and once on the road, with the Celtics winning the most recent game 102-82 against the Heat at TD Garden in Boston on Monday night ET. The series heads to Florida. Game 5 of the Boston Celtics versus Miami Heat series will be held at FTX Arena in Miami. The Heat aren’t the betting favorite despite playing on their own court.

Before the 4th game of the Eastern Conference finals, the Boston Celtics were 7-point favorites. However, they defied the oddsmakers by destroying the Heat by 20 points. By far the greatest player in the game was Jayson Tatum – the team leader with 26.9 PTS, 8.0 REB, 45.3 FG%, 35.3 3PT% (230-for-651). The 24-year-old forward scored 31 points, grabbed 8 rebounds, and dished out 5 assists. His classic performance served as a form of retaliation for what had happened earlier in the game. The Celtics were defeated in their debut game on their home court, with Tatum scoring only 10 points. In Game 5, Tatum and his teammates are expected to perform well, but they should be concerned about one thing: the Miami Heat are excellent on their own turf.

The Heat have only lost one home game since the start of the 2022 NBA Playoffs. It happened last week in Game 2 when the Celtics defeated them 127-102. They had been on a 10-game winning streak prior to that loss. Two of Miami’s 10 home wins came during the regular season, with one of them featuring the team’s finest offensive performance of the year – a 144-115 triumph over the Charlotte Hornets. With a 29-12 record and a point differential of 4,541-4,315, the Heat were the top home team in the Eastern Conference during the regular season. Their team leader is Jimmy Butler, with 21.4 PTS, 5.5 AST, 1.6 STL, 48.0 FG%, and 23.3 3PT% (27-for-116).
