MIA vs. BOS Dream11: The NBA is going to reach the Finals stage in a few days and we are into the phase where the season is going to end soon. The Golden State Warriors have already qualified for the Finals while in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Miami Heat will host the Boston Celtics. The series is tied at three each, so this becomes a must-win game for both.

The Heat looked down and out after losing two straight games but then Jimmy Butler took it upon himself to rescue the squad. As a result, the Heat defeated the Celtics 111:103 thanks to 47 points outburst by Butler. The Celtics have won in the Heat’s bastion twice but will they be able to crack it three times? Or will Jimmy Butler’s heroics once again rescue the Heat?

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Can Heat survive on Butler alone? Will the Celtics unlock their elite defense?

The Heat has been overly dependent upon Jimmy Butler and a cold shooting night from him pretty much makes it impossible for the Heat to even score 100 points. The Heat hasn’t seen anyone apart from Butler who can address their offensive woes. The defense of the team has been turned on during all games but it is the offensive end where the Heat’s tendency to overly rely upon Jimmy has hurt them.

For the Celtics, one problem has been turning the ball over. Tatum has alone been responsible for turning it over seven times in two games, which is also a testament to Heat’s defense. Jaylen Brown has been consistent too but the Heat defense has tested him too whereas Marcus Smart has also lost his rhythm due to an injury whereas Al Horford has been limited at times. Derrick White has done a great job off the bench but let us see how the Celtics respond here.

Fantasy related tips

Jimmy Butler showed in the last game that it is difficult to ignore him from the fantasy lineups. Lowry turned back the clock a bit after falling out of fantasy lineups meanwhile Strus and Tucker continued to make a point, but remain tricky selections. Adebayo is a bit of a risky option considering his credit value and yes, electing players from the Heat is no less tricky.

For the Celtics, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown both have been ace-type options whereas Al Horford despite his limited offense is a strong pick as he gives elite rebounding, defense, and decent playmaking. Robert Williams brings a lot when it comes to how low his credit value is. Meanwhile, Derrick White has rather made a strong case while Smart can have a big game here too. Grant Williams’ stocks have failed.
