The Heat is coming here with a record of 63-35 on the season so far and on the road the Heat have posted a record of 27-21. The Heat are coming here in a must win situation and playing on the road against a fairly decent Celtics home team will prove difficult.

After being burnt by the over in this series lately, we are thinking this game will hit the under. Neither team has shown that they are capable of lighting up the other teams defense and that will continue in this game. Still, I look for the Heat to cover the spread in this game, but will the Heat end up winning the game? I do not see the Miami Heat winning the game at all, but the spread I do see being covered in the game here.
