Celtics-Heat preview: Will Celts be drained by emotional win in Dallas?

http://www.nbcsports.com/boston/celtics/celtics-heat-preview-will-celts-be-drained-emotional-win-dallas

The Boston Celtics remain a team whose collective talents are far more valuable than their individual abilities.

But there are going to be nights when someone has to shoulder a larger burden of the team in order to win. More often than not, that “one” will likely be No. 11, Kyrie Irving. 

We saw in Dallas what can happen when Irving feels he has little choice but to put the team on his back and carry them to victory. 

The Celtics were desperate for a spark against the Mavericks and found it in Irving, who scored 47 points in leading the Celtics to a come-from-behind 110-102 overtime win. 

It remains to be seen if the Celtics will require a similar Herculean effort tonight when they take the Miami Heat with a chance to extend their winning streak to 17 straight. 

This team isn’t one to dwell on success in the past, even if the past was just 24 hours ago. But there’s no getting around how what happened on Monday night might impact what we see against the Heat. 

Boston expended a tremendous amount of energy in rallying from a double-digit deficit in the fourth quarter at Dallas, the kind of effort that may be difficult to replicate against a Miami team that you can count on to play hard from the opening tip to the final horn. 

Irving’s performance was one of the rare instances this season when Boston clearly could not have won without their top scorer having a big game. 

“When we needed it most, he made big shot after big shot,” said Al Horford. “He had such good rhythm, I was thinking, ‘just let him keep it going.’ He just kept being aggressive, taking really good shots. He recognized he needed to be extra aggressive, especially at the end and score the ball for us.”

Scoring could potentially be at a premium against Miami which allows 102.5 points per game which ranks ninth in the league in fewest points allowed. Also, the Heat will test Boston’s perimeter defenders. Miami comes into tonight’s game averaging 11.1 made 3-pointers per game which ranks ninth in the NBA. 

The Heat are led by Goran Dragic who is averaging team highs in scoring (18.3 points) and assists (4.7) this season.
 
These two squared off earlier this season in Miami with the Celtics coming away with a 96-90 win as Kyrie Irving and Jayson Tatum led the way with 24 and 20 points, respectively. In that game, the Heat were without starting center Hassan Whiteside, who will be in the lineup tonight as the Heat try to bounce back after losing three of its last four games.


My comments: Whiteside will be playing, probably starting. Hopefully that means Baynes will also start and Morris will come off the bench. Lets see if Horford and our bench have a better showing because of it.

I am pumped up ready to watch but there's still 45 minutes to wait.

The bench needs to show up tonight.

Yes, it will be interesting who starts. I am starting to assume it will be Morris each time. Although I read a few days ago he might be missing a game on the back to back coming up.

It's not just Larkin and Rozier who have disappeared. Theis and Semi are missing. Ojeleye doesn't seem to be a vital part this year, but we are going nowhere without Theis and Baynes contributing on a consistent basis.

Hopefully tonight is more like the earlier wins when no one was complaining about the bench.

Jaylen in his second year is already better than Jeff Green ever was. I would take this year's Tatum over any year of Green. I'm not worried about those guys.

The Celtics are clearly in a rut but still winning. Hopefully order is restored tonight with both starters and bench playing well.

Maybe this is the game Marcus Smart puts on a clinic on both ends. He is at the right age for a breakthrough season.

We are so lucky.

I've got the feed already going on league pass. The Heat focus in on people then add on smileys to cover faces. It is a bit goofy. I got to see Kyrie do his pregame dribbling warm-up.

I've got to admit I feel a bit uncomfortable about the Ray Allen story and will wait until it unfolds completely.

Baynes is starting, but Morris is a game time decision with knee tightness.  

I am a little worried about thi game. Miami plays the Celtics pretty tight, and Whiteside is here this time where he wasn't the last game.

I am hoping for a little more production from the bench, it is getting a little nerve wracking watching the beginners build a lead and the second team doing nothing to maintain that lead and watch it disappear.

I do predict Marcus Smart will have a good game tonight.  I am going into hiding after that statement knowing how others feel about Marcus.
It has to happen sometime, why not tonight?

Good evening to all........

I guess it's the Miami feed tonight.  More palatable now that LeBron and DWade are gone.  They were positively insufferable then.  More humble now, heheheheh.

It makes sense to turn Morris into a sixth man. The second unit droughts are going to derail the C's if it doesn't improve. Tell him about McHale and how it's seen as a big role.

And tell him how McHale is in the HOF and is one of the top 50 players all-time.

He scared me talking up himself as a starter. Sure, that's nice confidence. I guess every good team needs a few grouchy guys.

This is good. Protect Horford from big centers. He's already 31. KG had Perk.

The starters are going to destroy them, so it will come down to the bench. My guess.
