Most Celtics fans seemed pretty convinced that the Celtics would win but it wouldn’t be easy. The Heat made sure of that in game 1.
At this point nothing would surprise me. I could see the Celtics winning the next 4 in a row. I could see the Heat sweeping Boston (though I would be a little surprised by that). I could very easily see these teams trading wins until game 7 which would come down to a quadruple overtime thriller with the ball in the air with a chance to decide the game.
Tatum and Brown are the obvious choices for the Larry Bird trophy, but Jimmy Butler looms large at the moment. It would be hard to see anyone else taking the trophy but you could make an outside argument for Marcus Smart if he builds upon the high assist numbers from game one.
Enjoy the rest of the series! (or at least survive it)
