The Miami Heat are two wins away from booking their ticket to the NBA for the second consecutive season.
Although, Boston came out full fire in game three , expect tonight’s game to belong to Miami. The Heat have something to prove, and they aren’t about to let the Boston Celtics even up the series. If Miami could pull in a win tonight in Boston, it would be big.
The key to tonight’s game is Kevin Garrnet. If Miami’s big men can contain KG and Rajon Rondo the game is theirs. Yet, thats only half of the key to winning the game. The other key, rebounding! Every single game that has happened thus far the winner has led the game in rebounding, so it only makes sense to focus on it right? Well, it should be interesting since Heat forward Chris Bosh will be out once again, with that abdominal strain that has kept him inactive for the two series ( this series and the series verse Indiana).
With Bosh out, Dwyane Wade and Lebron James can expect nothing less than extra tough defense from Boston. As we saw Wade has been getting double teamed and it starting to effect him shooting only 9 of 20 resulting in 18 points in Game 4; that was his second poorest performance this post season. He can’t have games like that especially with Bosh out!
Mario Chalmers has come out big for the Heat this post season when it comes to his offense, but his defense needs a little tweaking. Mario has been matched up with 3 point specialist and NBA leader in 3 pointers Ray Allen. When it comes to his defense he’s a little slow off that first step and Allen has no problem hitting down those 3’s. Miami’s biggest problem is Rondo. They can not. I repeat can not let him have such an easy game scoring triple doubles.
The game is in the Hands of the Heat, can they expose the aging Celtics?
