The Celtics Are Back!

The Boston Celtics and Miami Heat have been very entertaining over the last few days with their intense play. Some say the Celtics were too old and the Heat will contend for the championship. This year’s playoff run has left the Heat with a very opportune chance to win it all. The Chicago Bulls, with the number one seed in the Eastern Conference, lost Derrick Rose (the former MVP of the league) in an early playoff run from a torn ACL. The injury created an opening for the Heat to pass the best team in the East.

LeBron James is still searching for his first championship win. He has been called a prodigy since he was a teenager, having been selected number one overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2003 NBA Draft. Now he is with the Miami Heat alongside two other superstars Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade – “the big 3.” Tonight the Heat play the Celtics in a decisive game six in Boston trailing three games to two.

Don’t rule them out.

The Celtics have been under the radar over the last few weeks as the media portrayed them as too weak with lingering injuries. They ruled them out from a potential championship run.

In Game 5 Kevin Garnett came up huge with 26 points and 11 rebounds. The rest of the team struggled offensively but pulled it out down the stretch with huge shots by Paul Pierce and Mickael Pietrus. Rajon Rondo also contributed with 13 assists as Pierce finished with 19 Points.

The Celtics are now at a huge advantage playing at home tonight with veteran players who have been in this position in the past. The Heat on the other hand are lacking veteran players and have crumbled down the stretch many games over the regular season and playoffs. Although the Celtics are only a 5th seed, don’t rule them out as potential champions.
