MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Miami Heat have spent much of the last two weeks without Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, or Chris Bosh in the starting lineup. But, Friday night the Heat will have its Big Three on the court against the Boston Celtics, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
The Heat have just four regular season games left this year and getting the starting lineup a couple of games together would only help the chemistry for the hottest team heading into the NBA Playoffs this year.
Miami is 33-2 since February 1 including ripping off a 27-straight game winning streak through much of February and March. The Heat have also won six of their last seven games heading into Friday’s game against the Boston Celtics.
According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel’s Ira Winderman, the Celtics will be without Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce against the Heat Friday night. The Celtics have also spent much of the season without star point guard Rajon Rondo who suffered a season-ending injury earlier this year.
Miami will be without Udonis Haslem and Shane Battier for the Celtics game Friday, according to Winderman.
The Heat will play Boston Friday and Chicago on Sunday, after that the Heat will finish the regular season with games against the Cleveland Cavaliers and Orlando Magic.
