Despite what happened in Game 1, I still expect Boston to win that series. I've been high on Boston pretty much all year long. They were my pick to win it all this year even after "The Decision". I admit, my confidence in them has been a little bit shaken, but I still think they'll pull through. Should Miami beat them however, I believe Miami will go on to win the title. Whoever wins that series, IMO, will go on to win it all. I really believe Boston and Miami are the two best teams remaining, both East and West.

boston suddenly looks soooooo old!! i thought their experience and mental toughness would dominate this series but i guess youth/athleticism and talent is enough. The heat have enough talent on their team to single handedly win games regardless of what other teams put out.

If the heat beat the celts easily, i just dont see any team in teh entire league defeating them now. The lakers are suffereing against the mavs....bulls/thunder/memphis are very young and still growing teams that will not stand against the heat.

god i hope celitcs take care of the heat....only team tha tiwll be able to.

Well, I expected that D-Wade and Lebron would pretty much have their way with Pierce and Ray. They are significantly better, more athletic, and younger than both of those guys. But I also believed that Boston as a team (all 12-13 players) was >> Miami as a team. And that they would win out playing team basketball. But it's honestly looking like individually Wade and Bron are just so unstoppable that they can win even without having any depth and playing a ton of iso ball. With these first two games, i've been given little reason to keep my hope alive for Boston. But, if they win game 3 on Saturday I will feel a LOT better about this series.

Even with their win the Celts honestly look like they are on their last legs imo. But unlike the lakers ( ) they will go down with a fight which will make a great series for all the non fans.

Hence the reason I used the word SURPRISE. Check a dictionary sometime Dr. Bing.
