Injuries to Monitor
MIA - Tyler Herro (hand): OUT
Marcus Smart, Celtics ($10,800) at Heat
Smart totaled 38.3 DK points in Game 1, but he came up short in Game 2, posting just 15.5 DK points on seven points, four rebounds and three assists. Nonetheless, he continues to bring a solid effort during the postseason, averaging 15.1 points, 3.9 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 1.1 steals through 15 postseason outings, including seven outings with at least 35 DK points.
Jaylen Brown, Celtics ($13,800) at Heat
Brown finished with just 25 DK points in Game 2 after he had 38.3 DK points in Game 1. He averaged 30.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists through three encounters with the Heat during the regular season and must find a way to get back to that level in what is essentially a must-win game on the road.
Jayson Tatum, Celtics ($18,300) at Heat
Despite the loss, Tatum amassed 62.8 DK points on 34 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists in Game 2. He has been a major force throughout the postseason, averaging 28.7 points, 10.5 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 1.1 blocks over 15 outings, including 10 with more than 50 DK points and a high of 83.3. The Celtics need their leading scorer to come out in full force in Game 3 if they hope to avoid an ugly 0-3 hole.
Bam Adebayo, Heat ($14,100) vs. Celtics
Adebayo came up big with 57.8 DK points on 22 points, 17 rebounds and nine assists in 38 minutes of action in Game 2. He is averaging 18.5 points, 9.7 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.0 steals over 13 outings in the postseason, including five games with more than 40 DK points. Adebayo has a good chance to pad his stats at the foul line, where he is shooting 8.6 percent better at home than on the road.
Jimmy Butler, Heat ($18,300) vs. Celtics
Butler continues to excel, posting more than 50 DK points in the first two games of the conference finals, including a high of 63.3 in Game 1. He is averaging 31.1 points, 6.6 rebounds, 5.6 assists and 2.2 steals through 12 appearances in the postseason, and he is shooting a blistering 51.8 percent from the field, including 36.6 percent from long range. Butler should be up for another major performance with the benefit of home-court advantage and the prospect of earning a dominant 3-0 series lead.
Malcolm Brogdon, Celtics ($10,200) at Heat
Brogdon tallied more than 23 DK points in both Games 1 and 2, including a high of 26.5 in Game 1 when he stuffed the stat sheet with 13 points, four rebounds, two assists, a steal and two blocks. He remains a go-to option off the bench for Boston and is averaging 28.3 minutes per game in the postseason.
Derrick White, Celtics ($6,600) at Heat
In four outings since moving to a bench role, White is averaging 8.5 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 18.8 minutes per game. He averaged 15.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals through four meetings with the Heat this season, and he likely has to step up if Boston is going to earn a win on the road in the conference finals.
Caleb Martin, Heat ($9,300) vs. Celtics
Martin came up huge in Games 1 and 2 of the conference finals, surpassing 30 DK points in each contest. He had a major offensive effort in the most recent outing, posting 25 points on 11-of-16 shooting. He has provided a great, well-rounded boost off the bench throughout the postseason, averaging 12.2 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists across 13 games.
Kevin Love, Heat ($5,100) vs. Celtics
Love is averaging 6.5 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists through 11 consecutive starts this postseason. He topped 20 DK points five times during that stretch, including a high of 37.5 in Game 5 of the first round. He faces a good chance to get his long-range shooting going, as he is shooting a better rate at home, and the Celtics are giving up 12.6 threes per game in the postseason.
Al Horford, Celtics ($9,900) at Heat
Horford came up short in Game 2 with just 14 DK points in 29 minutes of action. He is averaging 6.3 points, 7.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 2.0 blocks across 15 games in the playoffs, including eight with more than 25 DK points and a high of 43.5.
Robert Williams, Celtics ($7,500) at Heat
Williams has shined in four consecutive starts, topping 20 DK points in three while averaging 10.8 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per outing. He is expected to maintain the starting job and must continue to make his mark in the paint, standing up against the Heat's hard-nosed offense.
