Rondo, Allen, Pierce, & Garnett > LeBron & Wade

Without Bosh this should be interesting. LeBron & Wade are playing great but 2 guys can only go so far. They have no help & nobody who can guard Rondo or Garnett.

Allen and Pierce are old and injured. Rondo posts triple doubles because nobody guards him. KG is their only matchup advantage, and even he is content with being a jump shooter. The Celtics bench is trash. Whos gonna stop D Wade? LeBron? The Heat beat a better Boston team in 5 last year. With Bosh out, Heat will go small with Bron at the 4 playing the Karl Malone role. Watch how he dominates their front court of Bass and KG. Pacers > Celtics

LeBron isn't gonna guard Garnett. If he does Pierce will avg 35pts a game. Allen may be hurt but he can still kill you from 3.

Battier would do just fine on old injured Paul Pierce. And yes LeBron will check KG at times.

Battier can guard Pierce about as well as he did David West. Which wasn't very well. Boston is a bad match up for Miami without Bosh. They can't guard Pierce & KG.

Lmao@Battier cant guard West. You must not have watched the last 3 games of the Pacers series. West was a non factor. Battier is one of the best perimeter and post defenders in this league.

Boston is a great matchup for Miami, theyre old, slow, and dont put up points. Miami's smallball will kill them.

Miami in 5.
I agree with KT, in that this is it for the old man Celtics. While the Spurs and Thunder will battle it out in the WCF, Miami will get this series over with quickly and get a lot of rest before the finals. The Pacers were the only threat to the Heat in the East, really.
On Battier, Battier is one of the best defenders in the league. He did a good job on West last series, and should be able to do a good job on Pierce.

The HEAT will win it all! They will make quick work of the Celtics (possible sweep) and will watch and wait for the game 7 victor coming out of the West.

15 min til tip... And I have a nice sum of money on this series... Let's get it!
