MIA vs BOS Dream11 Team Prediction Basketball, NBA Regular Season, Miami Heat vs Boston Celtics, 7 January


MIA VS BOS Dream11 Team Prediction, NBA Regular Season: MIA vs BOS Dream11 Basketball Match Season match-up: Miami Heat thrashed Thunder in their last match-up by 28 points by building a strong lead entering into the Fourth Quarter. Bam Adebayo led the Heat in points with 20 and the rest of the squad combined in a strong effort to pull off a victory against the inexperienced Thunder. On the other hand, the Celtics have won two in a row on road against the Pistons and the Raptors. In the last game against the Raptors, Jayson Tatum boosted the scoring by having a terrific and efficient 40-pt game. Celtics have the strong duo of Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum right now and their future looks bright since both the players are in their young 20s. Miami meanwhile relies upon the duo of Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo, who is surrounded by the talents such as Tyler Herro, Duncan Robinson, and Kelly Olynyk. For Heat, the Celtics are a tougher match-up than the Thunder, and beating them even at home will not be easy, considering that Celtics have now won two match-ups away from home, and are close to figuring out their rotations in absence of their stalwart Point Guard in Kemba Walker.

MIA vs BOS Dream11 Match Prediction
Boston Celtics might be further depleted at the Point Guard spot after losing Kemba Walker now that both Marcus Smart and Jeff Teague are questionable for the game. Celtics will need to rely upon Payton Pritchard for most of their contributions. For Heat, they now have an advantage at the Guard position and being at home, they certainly will have an advantage over the Celtics. Celtics will hope at least one of Jeff Teague or Marcus Smart plays in this game. Smart also brings defense at the guard spot and missing him will affect that end too. Heat may be able to sneak one in if there is no one act as a playmaker because they have an advantage at the Guard and Center Spot. Celtics will need to rely even more upon Tatum and Brown to get their third win in a row.

Miami Heat vs Boston Celtics, Key Players:
Jayson Tatum
PPG: 26.3
APG: 7.6
RPG: 4.0
Jayson Tatum has been an amazing scorer for the Celtics since they are missing Kemba Walker. He has shared the scoring lead with the emerging Jaylen Brown and has perhaps formed the most dynamic and versatile young duo in the League. He brought all his scoring chops in the game against the Raptors, registering 40 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 blocks in the win. Celtics will look for similar performances time and again from only 22-year old Tatum, who has already acquired a special place in the hearts of Boston Celtics fans. The young stalwart can be considered as a Super-Player pick in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball game.
Jaylen Brown
PPG: 26.9
APG: 3.1
RPG: 4.6
Surprisingly, it is Jaylen, not Jayson that leads the Celtics in scoring. The young player has shown a lot of tools this season and has excited Boston Celtics fans not only for the future but for the season itself. Jaylen recorded 19 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 1 steal in the Celtics’ win against the Raptors. Jaylen is now one of the primary scorers for Boston and the athletic young player has made a name for himself already.
Bam Adebayo
PPG: 19.2
RPG: 8.0
APG: 4.3
The Heat young big Bam has become an all-around player, and his versatility has helped the Heat this season. He is the leading scorer and rebounder for the Heat in addition to leading them in steals. The 23-year old big man is coming off 20 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 assists in the win against the Thunder, almost replicating his season averages. The Heat will need a lot from Bam if they are to make a Playoff run like last year.
Jimmy Butler
PPG: 10.8
RPG: 3.8
APG: 5.0
Jimmy has had a harsh start to the season, in and out with his injury issues, and has struggled to build consistency so far shooting only 37% from the Field. However, he has only played, and if the last game is any sign then he is coming on his own old ways. He registered 18 points, 6 assists, and 3 rebounds in the outing against the Oklahoma City Thunder. If that game is a sign for his improvement then Miami Heat will welcome it with their arms wide open.

Sleeper picks:
Payton Pritchard: The 22-year old rookie PG for Boston is the very definition of a sleeper pick and will have more work on his hands if Jeff or Marcus is unable to participate. He is averaging 8.6 PPG and 3.1 APG this season, however, in his last game against the Raptors, he posted 23 points, 8 assists, and 2 rebounds, showing great signs for Celtics.
Tyler Herro: Herro has been the second-leading scorer for Miami this season and has been consistent in terms of scoring, rebounding, and distributing the ball. He is averaging 14.3 PPG, 6.3 RPG, and 4.7 APG. He is coming off 7 points, 9 rebounds, and 8 assists performance in the win against the Raptors.
Goran Dragic: The experienced Point Guard is still a factor and leads Miami in assists with 5.5 APG. He is also contributing 13.8 PPG and has been an effective bench player for the Heat.

Robert Williams leads Celtics in blocks with 1.7 BPG.
Tristan Thompson is averaging 8.3 PPG and 8.7 RPG.
Duncan Robinson posted 12 points and 4 rebounds in his last game for the Heat.
