This audio file is a segment I did for Florida International University's "Panther Sports Talk Live" where I talked NBA and Celtics-Heat to preview today's game. This rest of this preview is provided by Accuscore and is not written by any members of RedsArmy.com. Predictions are based on computer simulations
The Boston Celtics are slight 55.4 percent favorites over the Miami Heat. The Heat are shooting 46 percent from the field and the Celtics are forecasted to shoot 46.2 percent. The rebounding battle is pretty even with the Heat projected for 37.8 rebounds vs. 39.2 for the Celtics. Turnovers are pretty even with the Heat projected for 14.2 turnovers vs. 13.3 for the Celtics. The Heat are making 6.3 three pointers on 37.4 percent from three point range. The Celtics are making 5.1 three pointers on 35.6 percent.
