The Mad Men Game of the Week: Pete Campbell vs. Roger Sterling
If you've seen this season of Mad Men, you're aware of the dislike between Pete Campbell and Roger Sterling. Sterling is the Hall of Famer—he's made his mark in the world of advertising, but overall, his time has come and gone. Pete Campbell is the new star of the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce agency. He proves every day that he's more important to the agency than Roger. Despite Pete's rise to the top, he can't help but deny that Roger still has some favorable qualities that can help the agency. Most notably, Roger's charm.
As the show progresses and as time moves on, Roger is going to become less and less important to the agency every day. Despite the fact that times are changing, Roger still knows how to push Pete's buttons.
The Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics are the same way. The Miami Heat are the new cream of the crop. They have some unfavorable qualities (their inability to close out close games), but they have elite talent and play lockdown defense.
Roger Sterling is the Boston Celtics. They can no longer bring it on a nightly basis because of their age and injuries. But the Celtics have the ability to beat the Heat on any given night because of their experience and coaching. They know how to frustrate the Heat, which is evident from their blowout win earlier this month.
When: Tuesday, April 10
The Pick: Miami Heat over the Boston Celtics
The Reason: The Heat can't afford to lose to the Celtics again. In order to beat the Celtics, the Heat need to prevent Rajon Rondo from making a mockery out of them. Last game, Rondo finished with 16 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds. Expect the Heat to come out playing fast. They don't want to play a close game with the Celtics.
Bold Prediction: The Heat will win big. They got punked by the Celtics last game. They will view this game as revenge.
