5* NBA *BEST BET* on Celtics +8
Boston took it on the chin in Game 1, but I'm not hesitating to take the resilient Celtics in Game 2.
Boston hasn't lost back-to-back games in nearly two months. It is 9-0 in its last 9 games following a loss, winning those games by an average of 10.4 points.
The Heat rolled in Game 1, but we can't forget that the Celtics have still won 3 of the last 4 meetings. We also can't forget that Miami lost Game 2 of its previous series with the Pacers.
Rondo is the key tonight. I expect him to be very aggressive after a subpar effort by his standards in Game 1.
The Celtics are old, but they have the heart of a champion. We'll take the points as they take the Heat down to the wire.
