Two of the Eastern Conference teams in the NBA are set to play each other tomorrow night. The 9-7 Boston Celtics are set to travel down to south beach and play the 5-11 Miami Heat. We are only sixteen games into the 2016 season and its night and day between the two teams.
The Miami Heat who were once the team to beat in the Eastern Conference are now in rebuilding mode. On the other side, the Celtics are coming into this season with the exceptions that they should make it in the weak Eastern Conference. This will be the first game between the two teams this season as they are set to face each three more times in the next couple of months.
Let us first look at the Boston Celtics. They are entering this game with a record of 9-7 and are currently in 2nd place in the Atlantic Division. In the last four games, they are 3-1 with wins over the Grizzles, Pelicans, and Brooklyn Nets. There only loss came two nights ago when they lost to the Spurs.
A lot of the reason for the early success of the Boston Celtics coming out of the gate is the production they have received from Isiah Thomas, Avery Bradley, and Marcus Smart. There are others who can be put in this category, but these three players are contributing in more than one way. In my years of being a sports fan, I have always said that you need players to participate in more than one way.
On the other side, you have the Miami Heat. They are coming into this game with a record of 5-11 and currently 5th in the Southeast. In the last four games, they have a record of 1-3 with losses to the 76ers, Pelicans, and the Grizzles. It doesn’t come as a surprise to many fans of the Heat that they are playing as poorly as they are. Unfortunately, you can not win when you are scoring less than 100 points in a game.If you would like the information of where you can watch or listen to the game online, here it is:
