Miami Heat vs. Florida State: Who wins?
Miami Heat forward Tyler Johnson was one of the stars of the Miami Heat’s historic run to the 2016 NBA Championship, but he’s not taking any chances on this year’s game.
Johnson said that if the Heat win on Sunday, it’ll be because he’s happy with how the team is playing.
Johnson and fellow Heat guard Josh Richardson both have experience in this year of the NBA Playoffs.
Johnson is coming off of a career-high 36 points and eight rebounds against the Miami Magic in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
The Heat (20-4) are in a battle with the Boston Celtics (18-8) for home-court advantage heading into Sunday’s game in Miami.
Johnson, who is averaging 13.5 points and 5.3 assists per game, said he was hoping to get his teammates involved in the game.
“I feel like we need to play together more, play harder and get everybody involved in this,” Johnson said.
“I think we can do it.
We just need to get everybody on the same page.”
After losing to the Magic in six games last season, Miami is one of five teams remaining in the Eastern Division playoff race.
The Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers both play at home on Sunday.
The Heat, who have lost 10 of 11, are tied with Boston for first place in the conference and have won three straight games.
The Cavaliers have dropped three of their last four.
The Miami Heat defeated the Orlando Magic 105-97 on Saturday night.
The win gave the Heat their second straight playoff berth.
