Can the Celts Pull off what the Thunder did?

Small favorite - so just like the Spurs last night the Heat as a doggie seems too easy...

Difference to me is Boston REALLY has to feel like they let one get away....can they come back from that and go in with the "they just held serve at home" attitude or was the last game too much of a back-breaker?

Knowing that the Heat saw what happened to the Spurs last night I'm more inclined to think they stay focused and put the hammer down....

What does everyone think?

Boston has played well enough in both games to show that they can hang with this Miami team. It was no fluke they took 3 of 4 during the regular season, and while most throw out what happens in the regular season, the matchups aren't as dominating on paper or on the court. The C's hung around for 3 quarters in game 1 but could not get closer also not able to take advantage of missed Miami opportunities and wore down. Game 2 you can't blow a 15 point lead sporting veteran leadership and experience in what could be the final time their regulars go for a Championship run. Returning home could be huge and I think they show up for game 3 and at least for one night make this a series.

I seriously don't see the Heat as an elite team, I just don't! I don't know if my dislike for Wade and James clouds my judgment, and they're both great, but I just don't get how they pull wins off without the refs blowing the whistle for them non stop. I like the Celtics to bounce back, but it's going to be a no play for me.

OKC was dominated, for the most part, in San Antonio. No heartwrenching defeats. Boston on the other hand, could have won either game in Miami, and the last one, that's as bad as it gets. Talk about being just deflated. Have to wonder how they're going to react here. I don't think they'll lay down, but how much is in the tank now? I'll just watch and put some money on baseball. :)

I must be gettin' old... I still think baseball is cool.
