Here we go, the last game of the Eastern Conference Finals, and as up and down as this series has been, this game could get out of hand quickly if one team takes control. Let’s do the seven questions preview for this one?
1. How does Boston win this game?
I think for this game Boston needs to play hard nosed defense and let Rajon Rondo take over the game. Look for his teammates and score as well. He’s going to have pull a game two performance and hope Boston ends up on the winning side.
2. How does Miami win this game?
Let Lebron James take over like game six, and hope his teammates help some along the win.
3. Does Lebron James have a monster game?
This is the question that matters most. If Lebron has anything close to what he did in game six, then this is for the Heat to win. But if Boston can slow him down some, there’s going to be a battle till the end.
4. Who steps up for Boston?
I said it up in question one, but again Rondo needs to step up and control this team as much as he can. He’s a floor general out there, and can will this Celtics team to a win. I would love for Kevin Garnett to have a good game as well. 20 points 10 rebounds should help out a lot. That’s probably asking a lot out of him at this point. But it’s game seven, so gotta put it all out there.
5. Can Dwayne Wade catch fire?
Dwayne Wade has been up and down this series, but if he’s up this game, then Miami has a good shot. Especially if Lebron is on his game. They are the two best players out there, and like in the Indiana Pacers series, they take over, the Celtics are done.
6. What defense comes to play?
The old saying is defense wins the championship, so whose defense wins this game for them. I think Boston has the better defense, so they need to step it up and slow down the Miami offense. Miami’s offense in the half court is not always the best, that’s the key to Boston winning. Don’t allow transition points and fast break opportunities.
7. Who wins the game?
Well, because I don’t want to see the Heat in the Finals, I’m going with Boston. I don’t think I picked a side either way because essentially I”m indifferent to both teams. And I think Oklahoma City Thunder are winning it all in the end. But I’d rather see Boston put down this Heat team, than the other way around. If Lebron goes off, it’s over for Boston. So they have to slow him down, and hope their offense moves like it should.
