I’m unconvinced that a team as small as the heat will be able to score at will on the Celts. They’re going to have some serious issues with Perk and Shaq clogging up the middle. They’ll have to rely on perimeter scoring, which will work in a couple games, but in a series? Could run out of luck pretty quickly, especially if this is in the second or ECF. KG is looking healthy this year too, which could be scary.

If they stay healthy, the old folks home in Boston has no chance.

The Heat have yet to prove that A) they can stay on the court for an extended period of time, and B) that a 3 alpha dog team can knock off a team with great players + great role players (like the Celtics).

Can’t wait to see… great article.

They’ll have the same troubles that the 1996-1997 Jazz had on back to backs. They might look sluggish on the end due to age but they are going to be mean inside. Garnett, Perkins, O’Neal, and O’Neal? Going to be a rough day for Jefferson, Okur, Millsap, Fesenko, and Evans. That being said, I still think the Jazz can take two wins from them in the season. Boston is built for postseason and not for an 82 game marathon.
