Boston vs. Miami
Sunday 09/27 07:30 PM Eastern
1 unit on Boston -3 (-103) (risk 1 to return 1.97) RESULT: LOSS
Boston stayed alive in the series with a 121-108 win on Game 5 after outscoring the Heat 70-50 in the second half. Miami couldn't match the intensity of the Celtics, who were playing in a desperate fashion after halftime. Jayson Tatum had 31 points and 10 rebounds, and Jaylen Brown added 28 points while Daniel Theis added 15 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. The Celtics have to do it again tonight, and they can if they once again can keep the turnovers low as they did on Friday. Boston is 51-33-4 ATS this season and 24-9-1 ATS its last 34 playoff games as a favorite. Look for Boston to come out strong immediately instead of having to turn it on in the second half. Play the Celtics.
