I really don’t have a preference with who wins the Lakers vs. Mavericks series. I do, however, really care who wins the Heat vs. Celtics series. I desperately want the Celtics to win. If the Heat beat the Celtics you can pretty much put them in the NBA Finals. If they win the NBA Championship, and I have to see Lebron and Wade celebrating I’ll seriously cry.
Things aren’t looking good for both the Lakers and the Celtics. The Lakers have looked terrible for the most part, including last night’s choke job to the Mavericks. The blew a 16 point lead, and looked indifferent like they have all postseason. My guess is something is internally wrong in their locker room.
The Celtics, on the other hand, look old. Don’t get it twisted, beating the Knicks with ease means absolutely NOTHING. The Knicks put forth the worst effort I’ve ever seen in my life. My guess is they just had a bad game, but it was a bad game that raised flags in many areas. The Heat looked younger, more athletic, faster, hungrier, all of the above. The Celts know they need to improve in Game 2 if they don’t I’m going to be very upset.
