Fouls called 24 to 21.
The Heat shot more free throws since they were fouled in the act of shooting on more of their penalties.
This is what happens when you play sluggishly and don't move your feet.

Or maybe the sun was in their eyes.

Celtics VS Heat

I'm going with Celtics for the win.

I'm going with the Heat:

BIGGER

QUICKER

STRONGER

MORE ATHLETIC

The Celtics are not the same team they were last year. Kendrick Perkins was HUGE for them both in the locker room and on the court. They also REALLY MISS guys like Tony Allen. The bench is just not as strong and they really have NO INSIDE PRESENCE.

Most of all in the second half of the year THE CELTICS LOOK LIKE AN OLD BASKETBALL TEAM!

Keep sipping that green and white Kool-Aid. The Heat of bigger, quicker, stronger and faster. The Celtic championship window is now CLOSED. They simply don't have good enough play at the center position or enough bench quality bench players to win a championship.

While the Heat IMO will win a championship in the next few years after they close some roster holes....they are a terrible match-up vs. the Bulls right now.

I really don't see them beating the Bulls, but that's why they play the games.

With the way these playoffs are unfolding, I'm not making anymore predictions. I will say, that the Heat, Mavs, and Grizz have probably played the best ball overall. I really can't tell where Chicago is at right now, because I don't think either the Pacers or the Hawks are the best 'litmus tests' so to speak...

I wish I had your confidence

But hey, I don't mind being wrong - lets hope this is one of those times. I just don't think the three reg season games meant much between these two teams, LBJ was out one, Wade the other, and weren't they all close games? Either way, should make an awesome ECF (if it ends up that way, I don't want to bury the Cs or the Hawks yet)

Anything can happen now.

Teams predicted to win are losing.

Anyone can win
