Las Vegas - Boston is listing Al Horford as doubtful and Marcus Smart as questionable. Aside from Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, two of the most important pieces on the chess board. The Celtics CAN NOT WIN without those two on the court. We all watched as the Heat fell behind in the first half, made some adjustments, and blew away the Cs in the 3rd quarter. Jimmy Butler is on a mission. Bam Adebayo is ticked off that he didn't get Defensive Player of the Year. Tyler Herro is, well, Tyler Herro. And Gabe Vincent is even providing double digit points (17 in game one) and solid minutes (34) with Kyle Lowry out. So, you know that we love Ime Udoka, and when he brainstorms with Brad Stevens, it'll be interesting to see what kind adjustments and tweaks they make for game two. Gonna be very hard for Boston if Smart and Horford are missing and they have to rely on Payton Pritchard, Daniel Theis and Aaron Nesmith again. However, we just got word that Smart has been upgraded to probable, and both Vincent and Max Strus are dealing with hamstring issues. Gonna keep it very light, but since Miami has now ripped off TEN straight wins at home, we'll tickle the Heat.
