Celtics need a split to beat Heat
posted at 5/30/2012 11:00 AM EDTI know it's only game 2, but the Celtics must win tonight to have a chance against Miami. If the Celtics lose, I just can't see them winning 4 out of 5 games.
Getting the split will change the tide and tenor or the series. The national analysts who all picked the Heat will begin to backpedal. The pressure will be ratcheted up for Miami, and we've all seen Lebron's track record when playing in big playoff games. He has the capacity to disappear.
When you are dealing with Lebron and Wade, you're playing with fire. Celtics need to take care of business tonight. If so, I think they could take the series in 6.
