Of the many intriguing second round matchups in the 2011 NBA playoffs, none has more at stake than the Miami Heat vs. the Boston Celtics.

Both of these teams are expected to contend for a championship and both will face their toughest challenges yet beginning on Sunday.

While the Heat look to shed the "choker" label that has followed them all season and finally live up to their considerable South Beach talents, the Celtics stand in their way, more focused than ever on bringing Boston yet another NBA championship trophy.

The winner of this series will undoubtedly be considered a favorite to win it all.

I will take this a step further. I believe that the winner will wind up hoisting the Larry O'Brien trophy and emerge from the 2011 season as champions.
