Boston embarrassed Miami the last time the teams met on April 1, winning 91-72 at home behind a triple-double from guard Rajon Rondo – 16 points, 14 assists, 11 rebounds.
Paul Pierce led the way with a team-high 23 points for the Celtics in that win, while Brandon Bass picked up 16 points and 10 rebounds, and Kevin Garnett was held to just 10 points. Ray Allen sat out that contest for Boston with a sore ankle.
LeBron James was good for 23 points in that losing cause for Miami, while Dwyane Wade scored 15 points to go along with eight rebounds, and Chris Bosh had just four points.
Despite that win at the start of the month the Celtics are still only 4-6 SU in their past 10 games against the Heat, and 5-5 against the spread for NBA bettors at Bovada. The OVER has paid out for totals bettors in six of the last 10 meetings between the teams.
Wade sat out Miami's last game on Sunday against the Detroit Pistons with a sore ankle, but he is still expected to be on the floor against the Celtics on Tuesday night. Heat guard Mike Miller (sprained ankle) returned to action for the team against Detroit.
On the NBA futures at Bovada the Heat continue to lead the way at 9/5 odds to win the NBA championship this season, with the Celtics pegged at 25/1 odds to claim the title. Both Miami and Boston lead their respective divisions heading into Tuesday's contest.
