Both teams are trending healthy with each needing the win to stay out of range of the league’s new play-in tournament, with the Heat having won their last contest and seven of their last 10.

The Celtics have to approach this game like it could change the course of their season's ending, because it absolutely could. But with Boston failing to show up in critical moments, we'll have to bet against the Celtics besting an equally-hungry Heat.
