Victor is just emotional hedging, he's almost as good as me at that now. Sorry anattta, your team has lots of , but I don't think it's going to be enough this time around. Would love to see an epic series though.

lol gimpy Pierce and surgery-needing Ray covering Lebron and Wade this series. Haslem and Joel will do fine vs Garnett and their other bigs are what, Bass and Hollins?

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

neither of these team iterations are as good as their predecessors...

07-08 Cs would roll. So would 09-10. So would last year's Heat team.

But these teams are just merely good, they are both heavily flawed, and someone will win.

The line isn't as jarring as it was last year, although 1 in 4 roughly sounds right for Cs.

based on that, you gotta figure Heat win it. last year's team won a game; but that was a healthy, non-criticized heat team and a Cs team that was forced to play Jermaine-I-****ing-suck-O'neal. I'd go so far to say Heat in 6, then, because all those factors maybe it becomes competitive.

But what I really mean is neither team is a clear quality NBA finals team, and I expect both to lose to the champion of the real finals, either OKC or SAS.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

Celtics were about 40% to win the series last year. And lol @ calling the Heat un-criticized up to that point.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

Why did NBA give Celtics-Sixers two games rest before game 7, and now the Celtics only one day of rest before the Heat game?

Every little thing they can do to get Miami to the Finals, I see.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

JON was very solid all playoffs last year. he anchored the defense playing very smart on that end and he hit a few buckets in his 20 or so minutes of action. u cant blame him. i posted a video which showed his brilliance. + a billion vs knicks and believe even positive vs heat. last years team had ffgd and his 4 playoff PER and jeff green was playing with a heart defect.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

well they will start out with allen and then guess pietrus will come in. kg and everybody is gonna have to help. of course c's could ask who is going to check keyon dooling so the mismatches cut both ways.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

LOL Keyon Dooling, safe to say the Heats ability to guard him and his 7 ppg career average won't make or break this series

And Given Ray's health i don't think he can consistently check Wade or Lebron ATM

I think probably a little bit, but it's easy to see where they are coming from when the C's only have 4 able bodied players and two of them have been wildly inconsistent (Rondo + Bass) and one of them is injured-ish (Pierce).

Pietrus sucks normally and has been even worse during the playoffs, Ray has been god awful, Hollins is eternally WOAT...Keyon Dooling is legit our 5th best player right now and that's a bit frightening. We need some combination of Ray coming back to life, Pietrus/Dooling getting hot from 3, and the 4 competent players to beast to have a shot- based on the way we have played our offense has sucked too hard.

Wouldn't be the greatest shock in the world if our offense pulled everything together at the right time while the Heat fell apart, but it'll be hard for sure.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

Is it wrong to max bet the West team in all of these save for maybe OKC vs Mia?

NBA Finals Series Prices - Best of Seven
teams must meet in finals for action
Sun 5/27 885 Boston Celtics (Series) +225
8:30PM 886 Oklahoma City Thunder (Series) -285
teams must meet in finals for action
Sun 5/27 887 Miami Heat (Series) -105
8:30PM 888 Oklahoma City Thunder (Series) -125
teams must meet in finals for action
Sun 5/27 889 Boston Celtics (Series) +240
8:30PM 890 San Antonio Spurs (Series) -300
teams must meet in finals for action
Sun 5/27 891 Miami Heat (Series) -105
8:30PM 892 San Antonio Spurs (Series) -125

edit- meh, using current vig free lines from pinny for possible matchups, looks like SAS +168 to win it all is more +EV than taking them to beat Mia + Boston at those prices.

I believe that Friday night games don't get the viewers of Saturday Night games. Plus they wanted game 1 to be on Memorial Day.
