Celtics vs. Heat Game 2

The Boston Celtics did everything they could to stop Lebron James and Dwyane Wade from scoring and neutralize their talents. In the end, the Heat won in overtime 115-111. Wade had 23 points and James had 34 and Mario Chalmers added 22 points to help Miami go ahead 2-0 in their east finals series. I think Father Time has caught up to the Boston Celtics. They might go out in four or five games. Miami has got the personnel moves now to help the super star duo in James and Wade to make timely shots. Mario Chalmers made a good contribution on offense and Shane Battier and Ronny Turiaf made great strides to the Miami Heat team in shot makes and defense. What you witnessed in this Game 2 was the unstoppable star force of Dwyane Wade and Lebron James. You can’t hope to stop Wade or either James from getting their points. You have to make them earn it. Indiana learned it by earning flagrant fouls against Wade and getting technical fouls by getting in James’ face. It didn’t work. You do your best job to neutralize James and Wade offensively and on the defensive end, you have to make James and Wade work more on defense than on offense. You also have to make James and Wade’s Heat teammates score more than either Wade or James can. Give Miami’s superstars different looks at scoring around the basket. I was shocked that Rajon Rondo didn’t step up more big-time to help Boston win the game. He hit two amazing back-to-back three pointers to help Boston come close to tying the game in overtime. Rajon Rondo had a game high 44 points and 10 assists.

  1. Hey man,

    Just came across your blog and really enjoyed reading your NBA stuff. We currently have quite a few NBA writing openings on the FanSided network, and I think you’d be a great addition to our team. If you’d be interesting in contributing for one of our team sites or general NBA sites, let me know and we can discuss further details.
