The Celtics had a 62-54 lead in Game 1 before getting completely smoked in the third quarter. Jayson Tatum ran out of gas in the second half, being uncharacteristically careless with the basketball too often. Boston’s defense also gave up too many open shots, but should be improved with the return of Marcus Smart.

The Heat let Jimmy Butler carry them in Game 1, and the star forward will look to keep up that production in Game 2. Tyler Herro also had a big game, while Gabe Vincent filled in admirably for Kyle Lowry. The Heat have played sound basketball on both ends of the floor this postseason at home, and that should continue tonight.
