Boston Celtics Miami Heat Preview

Friday, April 29, 2011

The Boston Celtics vs the Miami Heat should be the best series of the second round and perhaps the playoffs. The Celtics and Heat met 4 times during the regular season with the Celtics winning 3 out of the 4. In the Celtic wins they dominated the Heat inside and out. Rajon Rondo controlled the game and the tempo. Dwayne Wade was not a factor in all 3 loses. The key for the Heat to win the series is to speed up the tempo and force turnovers. They also will have to find a way to score during the final possesions of games. Chris Bosh will have to be aggresive during the whole series. He can't just settle for jumpshots. He has to make Kevin Garnett work hard in the post, and seeing that he is one of he Heats biggest players he has to have a presence on the boards.

The key for the celtics to win the series is to slow down the tempo and only run when it is needed. The Celtics will have a huge inside advantage if Shaquille O'Neal can play in this series. The Heat will doesn't have anyone who can matchup with Shaq, even at his age. If Shaq can't go for this series then the Celtics will need their bench to step up. Jeff Green and Glen Davis will need to have big impacts and Nenad Kristic will need to be a force inside. I'm taking the Heat in 6. I think their size will wear down the Heat in the first few game. I see the Celtics winning 1 in Miami, and finising it of in game 6 at Boston.
