As much as I want that to be true, the Heat haven't beat the Nets all season
I think the second game will be the "deciding" game, as stupid as that sounds. The first game is a toss up, a well rested (and possibly very rusty) Heat against a Nets team taken to the brink last series. That game could be a 20 point win for either team. The second game though, neither team will want to go down 2-0, they will have played the first game, made the adjustments etc. I think that game will show us whether the Heat roll over the Nets this series or if the the regular season against the Heat was not a mirage for the Nets.
If the Heat win, and I think they will after the Nets spent all their energy putting down those pesky Raptors, I don't think the series will be a clean sweep for Miami. Too much experience, toughness, and pride on that Brooklyn roster to go down without a fight. Miami in 5 or 6.
i think regular season games are a little overrated. like the celtics beat the heats 3-1 in the 2011 and heats still beat them 4-1 and went to the finals
Agree completely. Just saying that i don't expect it to be easy for Miami. There's one more thing that makes this more interesting - the return of the hated KG and Paul Pierce. I'm already getting pissed off imagining them swaggering onto the floor for warmups
^I agree as well
It's clear to me that the Heat have he upper hand. If the Nets are to win they have to play way better than against Craptors
I'd love to see an upset but realistically it's not very likely,
From an emotional standpoint, I'd love to see Pierce and Garnett make a run of things and let's give JJ his credit. If he didn't have that enormous contract, we'd be saying he's such a great player and can even play a little defense.
That said, LBJ is too good and Spo is not bad at making adjustments.
