Ryan McDonough @McDNBA
Marcus Smart and Robert Williams playing for Boston tonight while Tyler Herro is out for the Heat presents a golden opportunity for the Celtics
If Boston wins, I think they’ll close out in the series at home in Game 6, which was my pre-series prediction – 7:10 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I believe the Celtics are 25-6 in 2022 (including playoffs) when they start:
Rob Williams
Al Horford
Jayson Tatum
Jaylen Brown
Marcus Smart
In 443 regular season minutes, that group was +24.6 points per 100 possessions. – 7:06 PM

No shootaround for the Heat this morning. That means no injury updates from them until later today.
Boston is having shootaround. We may get some injury updates shortly, but don’t necessarily count on it. Both Marcus Smart and Robert Williams are questionable for Game 5 tonight. – 10:59 AM
Joe Vardon @joevardon
When Robert Williams and Al Horford have been on the court this series, the Heat are helpless. But the Celtics may not have Williams for every game because of that knee — one of 25 reasons the conference finals is up for grabs, ⁦@The Athletictheathletic.com/3331770/2022/0…10:58 AM
