I think the team who comes out of this will be the one that just simply out works the other team. We are going to have to win the rebounding battle and make sure 70 % of their shots are well contested. We have the advantage when it comes to Doc vs whatever that other guys name is, and we have had time to prepare. Hopefully when the team has been going over film Arroyo has been right there helping Doc figure out ways to exploit those nancys that are waiting for us to come to their house and turn the Heat Down.
I don't see Green being much of a factor just need him to not turn the ball over give us a few points and a few rebounds.But, I also see it as a chance for Green to step up if he is given the chance against Bosh. Bosh is clearly over rated, I don't have anything to back this up but I feel like he has big nights when other teams defensive rotations aren't on point and he is left open. If Green is at the 4 and KG at the 5, and Green steps it up and becomes the fly that Bosh cant swat we have the oppurtunity to neutralize Miami's bigs. Don't get me wrong JO and KG will get the job done but neither can play 48 minutes a night. Bottom line with Davis is he is going to have to play big, and not let Miami's bigs make him look like a punk which could happen. I will expect him to be the Big Baby that shuts us up from time to time and have two or three big games in this series. This series is also going to be his best chance to rack up the charges. Delonte could be big him and Rondo have a great chance to wear down Bibby and Chalmers early in games. Plus there is the issues between West and Lebron( that I'm not sure are real) that could push Delonte past the pain and help him give us what we know he can.
Ray seems to do a good job against Wade, and hopefully he will continue to be hot from three. I said before the playoffs started Ray would set a record for most threes in a game in the second round or ECF then break his own record in the Finals( I hope its this series) we can all tell he is feeling good, and has had some time to practice. KG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! to me is going to have to make Chrissy dread going up against him there is a good chance that he could get into his head and put him way off his game leaving him inefective for most of the series. I expect solid play from Jermaine O'Neal. He will be waiting for Lebron and Wade to try to take it to the rim. He is going to be a huge factor in how all this plays out. Just make them regret letting you leave, because you now know that all those banners in Boston are alot brighter than the South Beach sun. I don't know where to go with Pierce vs James its going to be good. Rondo we need you to outshine James like you know you can. Alot of us have been saying they dont have an answer for him, I expect to see James guard him some with Wade on Ray, and Jones on The Captain. We can expect our bigs to get into foul trouble early in some of these games. So, if the Big Shamrock is going to suit up now is the time. I for some reason over the last couple of days have been doubting Shaq's injury. Maybe its just hope that he will come out of the tunnel, and for the rest of the Playoffs be the man we saw for five minutes in Detroit.
When it comes down to it I would have to say advantage C's, and not because I walked away from the final 40 seconds of that game in L.A I cant forget no matter how hard I try. Not because this is the most emotionally invested post season of my entire life, and not because no matter where I look all I see is the color green. I have been waiting for this ever since that whiner Wade ( I want to smack him every time I see that look on his face when the refs dont see it his way) became the best recruiter in basketball.
Have fun playing in the sand guys while we are on our way to take the Bulls by the horns. Oh and Eddie thanks for the help on # 17 I know you are sitting on the floor in the corner of an empty room rocking back and forth saying to yourself, I don't want to do this, I don't want to do this. I understand if you don't show up, and I don't blame you. If I had the same thing on its way to my house that you do I would be scared too. Wade, Lebron I know you guys don't respect who, and what this team is. I'm glad you don't it will be our biggest advantage. See you ladies on Sunday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
