Garnett still a game time decision
The LeBron James led Miami Heat come into Boston riding a record tying 23-game winning streak to face the team that ended their last winning streak at 11-games.
”If there’s any group that would be motivated in a circumstance like this, it’s that team in green,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. ”I don’t know if the streak will be a big factor, but they love playing against us, and vice versa. That’s what happens when you meet a team consecutively in the playoffs. There’s a history there, and that’s what makes these games special.”
Celtic’s center Kevin Garnett did not participate in shoot around Monday morning and is still a game time decision.
“We don’t know what he’s going to do,” Head Coach Doc Rivers said Sunday. “My guess is he’s 50-50 at best.”
