The Celtics host to take on the Heat in game 3 Saturday night.

Robert Williams (61% opening-tip win rate) will be taking on Bam Adebayo (66% win rate) in the opening tip-off. Adebayo is 3-2 against Williams on opening tips over the past two seasons, so the tip-off matchup is fairly even either way.

Boston tops the league at scoring first, converting their first field goal 65% of the time. Miami is slightly below league average and scores first 48% of the time.

Miami is quite unpredictable on first baskets, while Boston is most likely to take a 3-point shot. I like PJ Tucker, Gabe Vincent and Jaylen Brown tonight. I may sprinkle in a bit on a few other players like to hit a 3-pointer once lineups are officially announced.
