BOS vs MIA Dream11 Match Prediction Basketball, NBA Playoffs, Boston Celtics vs Miami Heat, 18 September

BOS vs MIA Dream11 Prediction, NBA Playoffs: Bam Adebayo's block on Jayson Tatum was so good, and clutch that 5-time NBA champion Magic Johnson labelled it as the best defensive play he has ever seen in the playoffs. Though it is a bit exaggerated to some degrees, it was super clutch, nonetheless, and came at a time had Tatum finished the shot, the match would have gone into 2nd overtime. Courtesy of that block, Heat survived and won 117-114 in overtime to take a 1-0 lead in the series. The second game of the series will be played at AdventHealth Arena, in Orlando, Florida, on Friday morning (IST).

BOS vs MIA Dream 11 Prediction: Boston Celtics had their moments though. They started hot, winning the first quarter 26-18 and had a 12-point lead going into the fourth quarter. But the Miami Heat refused to give up. They came hard at the Celtics in the fourth quarter, more vibrant and precise on both ends, and forced the overtime after outscoring Celtics 35-23 in fourth quarter.

BOS vs MIA Dream11 Today Match Prediction:

Boston Celtics had the lead in game-1 but failed to close out the match. This is that stage in the season where players are defined by how they tackle their nerve and anxiety during pressure cooking situations. Miami Heat were the clear winners in that regard as superstar Jimmy Butler scored the winning shot, while Bam Adebayo blocked Jayson Tatum‘s dunk which would have tied the game in overtime. Celtics are not a bad team. They are here on merits but they can't afford to fall behind by two games. Not against this Heat team full of street fighters. The Greens have to win this game but it won't be easy against a Heat team that has lost only once in the playoffs this season. We back Jimmy Butler and Co to win this match.
