I think Miami is too much. Boston will win a game at home, but I think Miami overwhelms them again. It might again take them until the third quarter to do so, but it will happen. Boston doesn't have enough size, speed or toughness.

Also, let the ref-whining begin!

Being a realist, I just can't see the Celtics coming out on top without Avery and the way that Ray Allen is playing. KG is picking up some serious slack but I don't think it'll be enough.

I feel like the Celtics could make a run and surprise the heat tonight. This game will be the indicator. If the Celtics can respond the way they need to tonight I can see a 7 game series.

But seriously, ****ing injuries. Who woulda thought we would be here with Jermaine O'Neal, Jeff Green, Avery Bradley, and Chris Wilcox out, and Ray playing hurt?

While I had the Heat in 5, I didn't believe it pompously. I had my reasons, mainly being that the Celtics have not been a high scoring team in the playoffs thus far, they'll be facing the toughest defense they've faced so far, and the Heat will probably avg at least 90ppg this series.

But it wasn't Heat in 5, easily.

Respect your opponent or they will make you respect them.

Yea your too hurt to think they can pull this off. Its not just their best perimeter defender, its another low post scorer, AND ray allen. Jermaine oneal can kick rocks in the playoffs.

I like the heat in 6 but boston will put up a fight.

Man first off let me say its great to hear someone actually talking logically on psd about basketball instead of the same old fake tough guy conspiracy theory team hating garbage that makes no sense coming out of some fanbases mouths.

I agree if you would have told me u guys made it to the ECF with all those guys hurt/out i wouldnt have believed it hell with green and bradley u guys are like another version of the current Spurs (maybe not as good but hey who is right now). BUt lets keep in mind KG is playing out of his average he took his game up a notch to help his team here so thats a big factor for their succes as well.

And while i agree u guys cane very easily make a run (like in the 2nd during the 1st game) it will mean little if u cant keep up for the rest of the quarters. Now if u can keep it close and our role players arent helping and u guys make a run ur chances are good.

Hope its a good game im looking forward to it.

I know Boston didnt play well, and some people have said Boston wont be as bad. Well I will contend Miami wont be as bad either. 5-25 from 3, the Heat missed 12 wide open 3 pointers and still won by 14. If those shots went down, were talking bout a 25-30 point win for the Heat. I will say Heat by double figures again tonight.

Hit need to run and gun, so by the 4th quarter boston legs are gone.

HEAT need to protect home court.

Doc Rivers on zone, "If we do play some zone, we did it all year, we just don't do it in the games." He said he remains not a big fan of itI fully expect him to go to a zone if the Heat hit consecutive baskets in a row and it begins to look like a repeat of game1.

The Heat have held their opponents (Knicks, Pacers and Celtics) under 100 points in all 12 games this postseason. Impressive defense. I hope they can keep it up. Even SAS has had an opponent go over 100pts in the playoffs.

@ShandelRich
How loose are the Celtics during pre-game? Even the team trainer is dancing in the locker room. These guys have been here before several times, so a 1-0 deficit is nothing to them.

It must be noted that Mike Miller was also out there shooting with Ray Allen. He was the only Heat player.

@IraHeatBeat

LeBron James said he had no response to Kevin Garnett's postgame talk of the Heat showboating late in Monday's victory. "I think we all know how K.G. is. He means no harm," he said of the Celtics center
Interestingly, two days passed and no word from the NBA about any fine regarding Doc Rivers' comment on his Monday technical foul called by referee Ed Malloy being the worst such call Rivers had ever experienced. This after $15,000 and $25,000 sanctions, respectively, for Frank Vogel and Erik Spoelstra the previous round.

I wonder why Doc didn't get fined? Maybe because the technical foul was ******** to begin with.

Still expecting that usual big third quarter for the Heat...

Why does Spo call for Wade to post up when Celtics are trapping him? Seriously, make the damn adjustment and get the man in the high PnR if you're gonna run a play for him.
