Boston -130

WIN

ANALYSIS: Early reports indicate that both Marcus Smart and Robert Williams, who are listed as questionable, are improving heading into Game 5. They are the keys to the Boston’s defense, so potentially having them both on the floor would be huge. Meanwhile, Tyler Herro could be out again for the Heat, and Jimmy Butler’s knee could continue to be an issue. I’m going to jump on this now because, if Smart and Williams are upgraded to available, the line could move further in the Celtics’ favor.
