Boston will be in a bit of a disadvantage on Monday night in game one as the club was stretched into the seven game series by the Philadelphia 76ers. Boston prevailed 85-75 as a -6 point home favorite but now the Celtics must wheel back for game one at Miami and play a rested Heat team who disposed of Indiana in six games with the series clincher coming in a 105-93 road win as a -2 ½ point favorite on Thursday May 24th giving them three days of rest entering the Eastern Conference Finals.

After falling behind 2-1 in their series with Indiana the Heat responded fiercely with three straight wins and scoring over 100 points in each game with the margin of victory being by eight points or greater. Despite with no Chris Bosh in the lineup for Miami the Heat shot 47.5% or greater in the final three games of the Pacers series. Bosh is still dealing with an abdominal injury and will be sidelined in game one. Reports are that Bosh may not even make the court in the Eastern Conference Finals. Boston suffered a huge hit to their World title chances as guard Avery Bradley suffered a season ending shoulder injury in the 76ers series.
