A ticket to the NBA Finals is up for grabs and the Miami Heat are in Boston tonight to try and wrest it away from the team that denied them last year in Game 7.
This year, the Heat are the underdogs and the Celtics are heavily favored to win it in this 2022 redux.
Between the last two Eastern Conference teams still standing, Boston’s scoring average is higher and Miami has let games get by them nearly twice as often as Boston, stats show.
Then again, according to the stats, Miami was expected to be eliminated a few rounds ago.
