    CELTICS the UNDERDOG vs HEAT

    Nobody wants the CELTICS win except me and few in here.


    Tom Haberstroh, Heat Index: Heat in seven.


    LeBron finally has what he never got in Cleveland: another star to help puncture the Boston defense. And he has two of them.




    Michael Wallace, Heat Index: My stance since training camp has been that if the Heat can get past Boston, they'll win the whole thing. Getting home-court advantage -- mainly a Game 7 in Miami -- was major.

    LeBron James Led Miami Heat Win Vs Boston Celtics

    Miami Heat superstar LeBron James scored 27 points to carry his team to victory over the Boston Celtics, 100-97, on Sunday, April 10, 2011, according to NBA.com.

    The Miami win moved them one game ahead of Boston in the race for the second spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Heat raised their record to 56-24, while the Celtics went down to 55-25 with two games remaining for both teams.

    Dwyane Wade scored 14 points and Chris Bosh added 13 points and eight rebounds for Miami.

    This is the Heat‘s first win against the Celtics in four games. They have now won 13th of their last 16 games.

    Boston was led by Paul Pierce who scored 24 points, while Kevin Garnett added 21 points, and Ray Allen with 13 points. Rajon Rondo was held down to just seven points on 3 of 8 field goals.

    The Celtics has now lost 10 of their last 19 games.


    (MIAMI news highlighted only this only win, forgetting the 3 straight losses they got from the Celtics)

    The Celtics will dominate this series.  If it goes seven games the Celtics will lose this series.  Celts in five.

    MIAMI — They have come to the Heat from different points on the NBA sea, but some share a common experience. At different times they have been Ahab to the Celtics [team stats]’ Moby Dick and they remain bent on revenge.

    The Celts eliminated LeBron James and Cleveland from the playoffs in 2008 and ’10. They took down Dwyane Wade and the Heat in the first round last season. Mike Bibby and Atlanta fell in seven games in 2008.

    Wade offered a wry grin after practice yesterday.

    “We don’t like them,” he said. “Simple. None of us.”

    James added harmony.

    “Yeah, man, they ended all of our seasons,” he said. “So we all decided to join forces.”

    “It was all for Boston,” added Wade.

    “Like Captain Planet,” said LeBron. “We put our rings together.”

    Then realizing the profound lack of earned jewelry, he looked at 2006 titleholder Wade and said, “Put your ring together.”

    In truth, the Prefab Five met here for greater glory than what’s available in a second-round series — even if they conquer the defending Eastern Conference champions. But in that the C’s have represented the most consistent standard on this side of the league since their core formed in the summer of 2007, it’s fair to say they’re the whale between the Heat and their hopes.

    James and Wade have spoken about wanting to get where the Celtics are.

    “It’s always a challenge playing against them,” LeBron said. “When you talk about mentally strong, they’re one of the strongest teams that we have in this league because they’ve been through situation after situation after situation — in hostile environments on the road, at home, being down during games in the fourth quarter and being up.

    “They’ve been through every situation together. It’s not just one guy being on the team. Not like me being on Cleveland and being through a situation, D. Wade being here and being through a situation. Them guys have been together.

    “They’re one of the better teams when it comes to that, so we have to be mentally strong, as well. At the same time, we know that we have to execute our game plan, which gives us the best opportunity to win the game, and not get too much caught up in what they’re doing.”

    In a series rife with delicious duels, both clubs are wise enough to know that a group approach is needed to problem solving. Even when one player goes off, it’s likely as a result of others doing their jobs to provide the openings.

    I almost feel sorry for the Heat.  Lebron is about to face his nemesis once again.

    Eddie House proud to be a Heat.




    Free-agent guard Eddie House signed this summer to join the Miami Heat and their three big stars: LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

    House, 32, knows something about playing with a Big 3, because he won a title playing for the 2007-08 Boston Celtics in their first season with Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen. The Celtics beat the Lakers in the 2008 NBA Finals in six games.

    "I compare [this Heat team] to the year I went to Boston when the Big 3 got together," House told. "But this is going to be even bigger. This is going to be Boston on steroids."

    This will be House's 11th NBA season and he's played for nine different teams. Despite jumping around, he's made a living off his three-pointers,  for his career.

    But that title year with the Celtics was memorable. "In Boston, everybody was after us.... We were playing hard-fought games every night. This is going to be even crazier. We're anointed champs [in Miami] from the beginning, and we're not the champions."

    House didn't play in the 2010 Lakers-Celtics finals because Boston traded him in February to the Knicks as part of a deal for Nate Robinson. "That stung a little bit," House said, "to get ... sent to a team that has no shot.... That kind of hurt."

    Remarkable quote from House:    "We're anointed champs [in Miami] from the beginning , and we're not the champions."

    I agree that it would be very difficult for the Celtics to win a game 7 in Miami.
