Can the Celtics knock out the Heat on Thursday?

After losing the first two games, my old Celtics somehow won the last three games. Can they get it over with at home and not have to go back to Miami?

Nobody really gave them much of a chance and even if they do go to the finals, nobody will give them a chance to beat either San Antonio or Oklahoma City. They might just be a team of fate and win it all this year. Then again I am a Celtic fan and maybe I am just dreaming.

Lets hear your thoughts...

As discussed much to my expectations with no surprise, you can't underestimate youth over experience and vice versa. This series isn't over by a longshot. Boston has an equal chance of closing this series out at home as much as Miami has of extending to a game 7. The higher seeded Heat were confident taking the first 2 games at home while the lower seeded Celtics evened out the series and shifted the momentum stealing game 5 on the road.

It would not surprise me either way of what Miami, who now is forced to go on the road with no margin of error is capable of. Miami may still not be totally complete as Bosh played just 15 minutes last night, but while Lebron and Wade carry the load guys like Chalmers and Haslem are going to have to step up their games in the clutch because Boston's big 4 are so versatile on the offensive end and know how to defend well. If the starters neutralize each other, game 6 could be decided by the deeper and more effective second unit. Should be interesting.

My short answer is:

If it wasn't for sports, I'd have nothing look forward to

The MVP does not want to deal with the critics and media. Heat DO NOT lose game 6

I will honestly admit I worry about that game! I sure hope the celtics pull it off as I feel no love loss for the Heat! BUT I do respect their talent (at times)

But wouldn't an OKC & Boston finals just be awesome!!!

If the heat continue to complain about non-calls and dont get back in transition they are done. I think with the added pressure here they are ripe for the taking

If it's a close game down the stretch I think the Heat will fold at the end like they always seem to....the crowd will be nuts and the difference maker will be Rondo with his ability to drive and set up shots for the rest of the team, while the Heat just dribble around and everyone (especially LeBron) is afraid to take the last shot....

Celtics will play to win and the Heat will play scared and not to lose....
