    I haven't seen a forum for this yet. Celtics and Miami start they're 2nd round match-up sunday. I'm picking Celtics in six. Thoughts? opinions? discuss.

    You'll probably get more responses when the series is underway. At any rate, Celtics for the win.

    Celtics half court offense was pretty lame against NYK. If we can rebound, get on the fast break and convert than we have a chance. Our bigs will have to be really physical down low and overmatch Miami who is pretty soft down there. I wouldn't mind seeing the big Shamrock sometime this series....

    I don't really get why the Celts had so much trouble against the Knicks... but they pretty much owned Miami during the season and they have playoff experience.

    Miami has the talent to make it a series, but it will probably be the Celts in 6

    I chose the C's in 6 as well. As long as we stay healthy and Shaq comes back for more than 6 minutes.

    Dude, stay in your lane. If Jermaine gets in foul trouble we need a big man that can hold his own.

    I think having Shaq will take some pressure of J and Baby. They can be more aggressive and not worry about fouls and that means we won't have to see Krstic at all.

    I'll go with the celtics in 6 as well. I also agree with Gymguy because it's been noted all season long that Miami is light in the pants at center and point guard and the Celtics will have to exploit that, which Philly couldn't do. That said, have two former all-star bigs (shaq and JO) will definitely give them an edge and it's been great seeing JO become a bit of a force on the defense end, albeit against the inconsistent Knicks.

    In other news...RIP Spurs. Zach Randolph is sticking it to them...no lube...OUCH

    I usually don't root for Boston, but I'd rather they win over Miami. And they have the skills to do it too.

    I know what happened to the Spurs? They just got out hustled. Grizzlies definitely wanted it more. All the top teams looked rather lackluster in the first round. I'm sure they'll step up the intensity deeper into the playoffs. I'm rooting for celtics. I want to see a Chicago/Celtics eastern finals.

    The sports forums are so lackluster on here, I stopped paying attention.

    With that said, I'll say Boston in 6. They are too experienced and too deep for Miami. Also look for Rando to run circles around Mike Bibby, but I agree the Celtics really need Shaq. That Perkins trade for them was an epic fail.

    The Spurs showed their age, and the Grizzlies were too big for them. Memphis vs OKC will be a very interestin series for sure. The Lakers vs Mavs series will be epic. Dallas has the size to matchup with LA, plus Kidd has the advantage over Derek Fisher, but Kobe will be too much. Lakers in 7. Chicago will probably beat Atlanta in 5 or 6.

    I'm going Celts in 7. For the Heat to have a shot at pulling this off Bosh has to be stellar. James Jones shouldn't be relied upon (nor Bibby) to bail out Bosh offensively.
