Typically when these two teams meet up there is a lot of emotion and meaning attached to the game. Tonight however, with both teams locked into playoff positions that will not be the case. Both teams have fully secured their playoff seeding and it is quite possible that both teams will rest their better players tonight. The Big Three for the Heat and the best four players for the Celtics are all questionable for tonight’s game and could very well sit it out. Doc Rivers has been known to take full advantage of these late in the season rest type games so look for him to do the same tonight.
Because of the uncertainty of those who will be playing tonight take the points with the Heat with your sportsbook betting.
