Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat Best NBA First Basket Props Odds & Picks

Boston’s Robert Williams took the tip-off against Miami’s Bam Adebayo in Game 5 and the injury to his knee might be impacting his vertical jump because Adebayo has won the opening tip in back-to-back games. Adebayo has won 13-of-22 jump balls in the playoffs and now has the 4-2 advantage over Williams. The Heat center will win this one.

The Heat have done well by grabbing the first basket in 48% of their games, but the Celtics are the best in the league this season at 65%.

Both of these teams were slow to start the last game as there were five changes in possession before Williams hit the first basket.

While the Heat have been able to gain the initial possession in the last two games, they’ve failed to convert it into points. The Heat are playing hurt and you’re seeing it impact their shooting in Games 4 and 5.

Jaylen Brown continues to be the guy that gets it going for Boston as he leads the team by attempting 30% of the team’s first field goals and 26% of the first game basket.

First basket: Jaylen Brown +370
