(Celtics Lead Series 3-2)
Can Boston close out the series tonight is the main question, and one that I’ll answer right now. Yes, Boston closes out the series tonight. They just seem to be on a better level than Miami right now. Lebron James and Dwayne Wade are playing like they always do, but they can’t find those ways to win. Rajon Rondo is going to be the difference maker in this game.
I think he has another gigantic effort with making plays, scoring, rebounding, dishing out, and doing it all out there. I keep coming back here and stating how impressed I am with him because I just haven’t watched much of him. He is stepping up and I think he’ll get the Celtics a win tonight.
Kevin Garnett should have a good game as well. I think he has that intensity to show that he wants to beat this Heat team as well. Here’s a fun stat for you as well. The Heat have only beat the Celtics in Boston once ever since Garnett, Ray Allen, and Paul Pierce all came together. The Heat have lost 15 out of the 16 times there, so all you stat lovers can use that.
Now whether the Celtics can hang with the Thunder come NBA Finals is another question, but we’ll get there when it happens. There will definitely be questions for the Heat when they lose this game tonight. See how much I am selling the point here. The Celtics will get the job done tonight. If not, then come talk to me tomorrow and tell me how wrong I was.
