Tonight, the Miami Heat need a win to keep playoff hopes alive and their matchup with the Cavaliers just got a lot more manageable.
The Big 3 will all be resting, as well as Tristan Thompson, in what is seemingly a 'punt' on the number one overall seed. If the Cavaliers drop either of these next two games against the Heat and Raptors, the Celtics are in prime position to win out and clinch home-court for the Eastern Conference.
Based on how the other night went in Boston, the Cavs don't seem worried about Boston.
This just reaffirms that mindset.
