Boston will surely be in a great mood after their victory in the previous game. Celtics are just one step away from the NBA Finals, so they will try to finish the opponent at TD Garden, but the Heat shouldn't be underestimated.
Miami have just one chance to stay in the game, so they will try to take the series into the seventh match. In our opinion, Heat have the ability to stop the Celtics.
