The Miami Heat (38-38 SU, 41-34-1 ATS) are achingly close to reaching the playoffs. The Boston Celtics (45-32 SU, 36-40-1 ATS) have already clinched a spot, but a win over Miami on Wednesday could be vital if the Celtics want home-court advantage in the opening round. NBA-TV has the coverage from South Beach at 7:30 PM ET; this is the second leg of a home-and-home series following Monday’s game at the Garden.

The Heat are somewhat healthy and peaking at just the right time, winning six of their last eight at 5-2-1 ATS to move a half-game ahead of the Orlando Magic for the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference – with a game in hand. Three Miami players are listed as day-to-day: point-forward Justise Winslow (thigh), and wings Josh Richardson (heel) and Rodney McGruder (knee).

Boston find themselves in fourth place in the East, tied with the Indiana Pacers at 45-32, but owning the tiebreaker for a top-half seed. The C’s are 4-6 SU and 2-8 ATS over their past 10 games. Their top players, Kyrie Irving (back) and Al Horford (knee), are both considered day-to-day, with Horford missing three of the past five games for Boston.
