After hanging around for a half, the Boston Celtics disappeared in the second half of their Eastern Conference finals opener vs. the Miami Heat.
Before we vault Miami into the NBA Finals, however, let’s remember that the Celtics have had some stinkers in each of their first two playoff rounds and have bounced back rather nicely.
The Celtics have the experience and character to get back in their series with the Heat, but there are a number of things they have to do on both ends of the floor, as I discuss with Cinesport’s Noah Coslov in the above video clip.
In the Western Conference, the Oklahoma City Thunder have to find a way to sustain their level of play for four quarters, as the San Antonio Spurs have done throughout this postseason. Noah and I talk about what to expect in Game 2 tonight in San Antonio.
