Not many things are better in sports than Game 7. The Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics battle tonight to see who will win Eastern Conference and head to the NBA Finals. Brian Matthews breaks down the game.

Miami Heat vs Boston Celtics Game 7 Prediction: Can We Bank on the Celtics?

Not many things are better in sports than Game 7. Tonight, we get a great match-up between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat. This series has been a dogfight. While the Heat managed to fend off elimination in Game 6 on Boston’s homecourt, giving the people what we wanted – Game 7.

Here is my prediction, pick, and the odds for tonight's game between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat.

Miami Heat vs Boston Celtics Game 7 Prediction

While the Miami Heat were able to force a Game 7, I am backing the Boston Celtics ML tonight (yes, even in South Beach). No knock on the Heat here, and anything can happen, but it took 47 points from Jimmy Butler on 29 shots from the field. Butler was a man possessed in Game 6. Not only did Butler show up, but the Miami Heat shot an impressive 42.9% from beyond the arc – connecting on 15 total threes. It will need to duplicate that effort in Game 7.

Jayson Tatum started Game 6 hot, but between Tatum and Brown, the two only attempted 25 total shots – which is not the usual. Tatum alone averages 19.5 shots per game this over his last ten, while Brown is averaging 16.8 total field goal attempts per game. I expect to see both players more active tonight for Boston.

Home court in this series hasn’t been as much of an advantage as you'd think, as the Celtics are 2-1 vs. the Heat on their home floor. The Heat won Game 1 at home, before losing Game 2 and Game 5 at home to the Celtics. I expect the Celtics to advance to the NBA Finals, where we get a heavily anticipated match-up between the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics.
