Series Notes:

  • The HEAT and Celtics meet for the second of four matchups this regular season.
  • Earlier this season, Boston recorded a, 111-104, win in Miami. Last season, the Celtics won the series, 2-1, after Miami won it the previous year.
  • The HEAT are 51-79 all-time versus Boston during the regular season, including 29-38 in home games and 22-41 in road games.

What to watch for:

  • Miami and Boston face-off in consecutive games, with another matchup this Friday. This marks as the fourth of eight occurrences this season in which the HEAT will play the same opponent in consecutive games, with six of those coming in Miami. They previously did so three times this season, splitting the two games against Toronto on 10/22 & 10/24, winning both games against Charlotte on 11/10 & 11/12 and also winning both games against Washington on 11/23 & 11/25.
  • Bam Adebayo has scored in double-figures in all 19 games he has appeared in this season and in 35-straight dating back to last season, marking as the second-longest streak of his career.
  • Caleb Martin has now scored at least 20 points in three-straight games, the longest such streak of his career.
