Analysis
Root Reserve—-Miami Through the first four games, this series has tilted back and forth as each team wrestles away momentum. After getting blown out in Game 4, expect Miami to bounce back with a much better effort in Game 5 behind vastly improved efforts from Butler and Adebayo. Despite their woeful shooting from the field, Miami fared better from long-range converting at a 38% clip from beyond the arc. The Heat are the best three-point shooting team in the NBA averaging roughly 38%. The offense has sputtered at times ranking just 17th overall, averaging 110 points per game. They need a much better effort from Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo after they were both silenced in Game 4. Miami will continue their strong work from beyond the arc while establishing themselves in the paint and closing the gap in rebounding. Boston has been excellent when under pressure but struggled with consistency over the last two rounds going just 1-4-1 ATS following a win. Miami is 6-2 ATS at home this postseason and has frequently shaken off subpar efforts going 5-1 ATS in their last six following a loss. Take the value play and roll with the home team.
