These last 4 games have really given us fans hope that this last run may go a little deeper into the playoffs then we may have thought. Even with the injuries of Wilcox, Jermaine, Pietrus, and Ray Allen the celtics have managed to lead the Atlantic Division as we approach the end of the regular season. But Sunday we face the biggest challenge we have had since facing the Sixers for the first time this season where we got killed. We face the Big 3 of Miami for the third time this season. This game means a lot because it shows how well the Celtics stack up against one of the beasts in the NBA.
I am assuming that Ray Allen will be able to play but I expect him to have reduced minutes coming off of injury and because of the rising of our young guard Avery Bradley.
Anyway, I am hoping to see the KG from 2008. Yelling, Shoving, and I lot of trash talk is what I want to see from KG. He usually in the past has had Bosh's # and in the last few games he has shown dominance toward his opponent. Bosh on KG is obviously the best match-up we have against the Big 3. If Garnett can get in Bosh's head and destroy that match-up we will win. I actually wouldn't mind if KG got a flagrant on Bosh as long as its not in Crunch Time!
Rondo will have a double-double and over 12 assist
KG will have 20/10 numbers and 2 blocks
Between Rondo and Bradley they will hold Dwayne to under 15 points and Chalmers under 3
