This was a matchup that many had predicted before the season to occur in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Here they are, standing tall after going a combined 8-1 in the first round.
The Boston Celtics proved me wrong when I stupidly picked the Knickerbockers to topple them prior to the first round. With a lineup of Rajon Rondo, Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Jermaine O'Neal, they are ready to prove that their end of the season skid (they lost seven of 13) was just a fluke. The C's play astounding defense, and it will be on Allen and Pierce especially to contain Wade and LeBron.
The Miami Heat hope to fulfill lofty preseason expectations, and if they contain the Big Four and take good shots, I believe it is altogether possible. In fact, I think it is going to happen.
Chris Bosh needs to continue his solid postseason run additionally.
The boys from South Beach will beat the boys of Beantown by the absolute slimmest of margins. An epic seven-game series is on its' way.
