(Heat Lead Series 2-1)
I might have to give up the prediction game as I’ve blown the past two predictions I’ve made. Just as I said, the Spurs would take care of the Thunder, they go out and lose. Now yesterday, I said the Heat would end up winning by 5 or 6 points, and they practically get run out the second and third quarters last night.
The Celtics finally got over the hump as they put away the Heat in game three. The second and third quarters is where the Celtics got the work done here. They scored 25 points and 30 points in those quarters to build up their lead. They win by 10 in the fourth quarter as Kevin Garnett leads the way in push ups and points with his 24 points. Lebron James held his own for the Heat as he got 34, but the Heat went cold early on in this game.
A 15-0 run helped the Celtics turn a six-point deficit into a nine-point lead. The NBA is always full of runs like that and the Celtics showed how they can turn it on. Still not quite a tied series, but the Celtics have gained some momentum going into game four, and if they win that, we’ll be at square one all tied up going into game five.
