When the scene moved to Boston for game three we saw the Celtics work down low and take full advantage of the Chris Bosh injury. Miami has had no answer for Kevin Garnett in the past two games as the veteran had 24 points and 11 rebounds in game three and 17 points and 14 rebounds in the Celtics win in game four. With the Boston Celtics success in game three and four by exploiting the undersize big men of Miami the Heat announced that Chris Bosh will be a game time decision for game five. Bosh last played way back on May 13 in the second round before going down with an abdominal injury that forced the Heat big man to miss nine straight playoff games.

Boston is trending this season as the Celtics are 7-1 against the spread in their eight meetings against the Miami Heat during the 2011-12 regular and post season.
