The Miami Heat look to continue their run at NBA history on Monday night as they look to extend their winning streak to 23 games as they prepare to take on the Boston Celtics. While there’s a chance Kevin Garnett could be out of the lineup once again, there’s no reason to sleep on the Celtics in this one as they’ve had the Heat’s number for the most part during the regular season over the last couple of years.
Believe it or not, Boston has won 12 of the last 15 games during the regular season in this series and with the way this rivalry has heated up over the years–it’s safe to say the Celtics would love nothing more than to play the spoiler role to ending the Heat’s impressive winning streak. Miami hopes to remain the hottest team in the league on Monday night as they chase the Los Angeles Lakers for the longest winning streak in NBA history.
As fort he Celtics, they may be dealing with injuries to key players like Garnett and Rajon Rondo, but they have still managed to win seven of their last 10 games as they have plenty of weapons to keep them in the playoff hunt. Plus, keep in mind that LeBron James has yet to win a game during the regular season in Boston as a member of the Heat–so the Celtics have that working in their favor as well heading into Monday night.
