Actually, it will be interesting to see what Pop has up his sleeve. Maybe he will start Splitter.

To me is seems going away from Green was a mistake. You killed the guys confidence. I would start him and tell him he had the 1st quarter to prove himself.

So you guys don't see Celtics winning 4 in a row? Then do you see Heat's winning 2?

Ummmm, they already have, several times this postseason. They actually beat the Celtics 2 in a row in game 1 and 2. As much shit we put into Lebron, Wade really needs to step-up. There were 2-3 games in this series alone where Wade finished the half with less than 10 points and shooting a terrible 20% something fg. Dudes more clutch than Lebron but he needs to show up in the beginning of games too.

Someone mentioned it is hard to value game to game during playoff as extrapolating data within such a small time frame is not the same during the regular season

That said, I think first 2 games v. last 2 games is completely different so you cannot really say "They won 2 already, so of course they can win 2 in a row." Well duh, but what I am more implying is whether they got it in them to close out the series. IMO, I do not think so unless in some twisted way Bosh will shine and reveal to everyone that he is the key piece in their "Big 3" lineup

Well you asked and I answered with a resounding yes.
If you really look at the games, both of these teams could have won the series 5-1 by now, most of the games are that close, 2 ending in OT.
So do I see the Heat winning 2 games in a row? Big hulking yes!
Will they though? That is a question we'd have to wait and see.

He is a big key. Heats won 50% of games without bosh and 75% with him

The Heat can certainly win 2. Boston has a lot of work to do.

Yes. Because the Heat are down in this series, it's Boston that has a lot of work to do. nod[1].gif

The hardest thing to do in a series is close. If you consider that easy, then good job good effort on you.

Green has shot 20%. Sit his ass down till the finals. IF they get there.

I think the Heat have a good shot at going to the Finals this year. In the last 2 (maybe 3, but I don't remember game 3 too well) games, they have played lackadaisical basketball without either Wade or James dominating the game like they are capable of doing, and yet they were still in the game the whole time.

 

From what I've seen of the Boston defense, they cannot completely stop either one of them. If anything, it's been Wade or James preventing themselves from taking over the game. If either one is catches fire, the Heat should be able to win based on how close the games were with them playing halfhearted basketball.
