I listened to a clip from the Mut & Merloni show on WEEI.COM where Stephen A. Smith said that the Indiana Pacers are more of a threat to the Heat than the Celtics are but the Celtics can beat the Pacers. I like Stephen A. That's my man 10 grand but I disagree with this. What I will agree to though is that the Pacers are a threat to the Heat. But if the Celtics can beat the team that pose the most threat to the Heat, then why can't the Celtics beat the Heat as well?
What other team can take the Heat to the limit? What other team pose the most problems for them? What other team is closely matched? Call me a homer but I think the Celtics have a better chance of knocking off the Heat than the Pacers do if not as much of chance as the Pacers. The only thing I can give the Pacers over the Celtics is rebounding but the Pacers don't have players like KG, Pierce/Green, and Bradley that can bang with the opposing players on the Heat.
But what do you guys think? Was Stephen A. right? Or can the Celtics beat the Heat?
My first FanPost btw.
