Category → OKC-Heat – For the NBA Championship
By Bobby Toulaine -- The Boston Celtics outplayed the Miami Heat like the seasoned champions they are -- for a little over three quarters — then the young, athletic and talented Miami Heat asserted themselves — hit the bit shots — and the Celtic’s shots floated and clanked — like there was no finish to them. Like the product of aging, tired legs — in the seventh game – 4th quarter of a long and physical series.
When the sm0ke cleared, the big three of Le Bron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh had scored the final 31 points for the Heat and eliminated any chance for the Boston Celtics to make one final run — by playing hard — scoring from everywhere — and turning opportunistic stops on defense into the final, convincing margin of victory — 101 – 88 — to end the game — and possibly end the fabulous, championship run of Boston own big three — Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, and Paul Pierce — with Garnett and Allen having played out their string — Pierce and Rondo still under contract for next year.
So for now, the elusive quest for a championship ring by Le Bron James is still alive — and headed for what some believe will be the ultimate challenge for the Miami Heat — a run and gun game with the young guns from Oklahoma. Young, talented, fast, physical, determined, willful — and some say — unstoppable. But if they are — the Heat may be the ones who can do it. It should be interesting. But I wouldn’t bet big money on it, if I were you!
