Default Heat will play Celtics in first round

It is unlikely Boston will slip or move up from that 8th spot and if Miami play ball the whole way this match up will happen

Will love to see Ray go nuts on three's in one of the games

I would love this. The C's have been lackluster all season but as we know the playoffs are a different animal.

I'd much rather face the Knicks or the Nets before the Bulls

You literally talk your team up the whole time, and then make excuses when they come up short, every single time. No let up at all. EVERY single time.

This. He talks a big game all the time, but he always has an excuse he grips like bar of gold anytime they lose to Miami. His act is getting f.ucking old.

I have confidence in my team and at full strength they match up favorably with the Heat. So we'll see.

The matchup well with Miami when Bosh is missing the first 4 games, definitely.

The Celts look like crap lately but they are built to take on the Heat.

KG will defend Bosh.
Pierce and Green defend Lebron.
Bradley will shut Wade down.
Rondo dominates his position.
Bass holds his own.

Celts got to find some scoring and some rebounding though.

That is completely wrong.A team like pacers,thunder,clippers are built to take on Heat.Of all the matchup in east heat is the worst matchup for boston.To beat miami you have to rebound better have athletic bigs and good defensive wings that can cover miami's perimeter duo.

Boston plays smallball just like heat.They are not a better halfcourt team.They are not a better fastbreak team or a better shooting team.Heck heat is probably the worst rebounding championship team we have seen and boston most of the time gets outrebounded by Heat.

So if healthy 5 in heat or a possible sweep

The Celtics do need to acquire a rebounder/rim protector, hopefully for Bass. Doesn't have to be anyone special, just serviceable.

The C's match up well and can take the Heat as long as LeBron doesn't go completely ham like in game 6 last year.

I don't think the Celtics stand a chance against the healthy Heat team.

If Bosh or Wade go down they could make it a series or maybe even win. But other than that I don't really give them much of a chance.

Celtics matching up well with Miami is a myth. They took advantage of no Bosh. They don't have the frontcourt or rim protector to beat Miami. Indiana, New York, and Milwaukee all matchup better.
