Smart Money Is On The Celtics To Finish Off The Heat in Game 6 Tonight!

By Bobby Toulaine -- The Miami Heat continue to mystify.  The are explosive.  One on one -- it's hard to beat Dwayne Wade and La Bron James.  But it is a little like two super stars playing against five NBA quality players on a team against them.  Maybe that will change if Chris Bosh plays extensive minutes tonight -- because Miami kind of built their team such that -- at their best -- both James and Wade play off of Bosh -- and when he's not in there -- the Heat are a little like having two Allen Iversens on your team, except they split ball time, so neither one really reaches their full individual potential. .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       . But with Rajon Rondo quarter-backing the Celtics, its a little like a Peyton Manning on the basketball court.  He's a talented player in his own right, obviously, but he makes everyone around him better than they are by themselves -- just by the positions he puts them in on the floor and the opportunities in motion  that he creates out of thin air -- and the threat that he individually creates. .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        . Based on what I've seen so far, though, I think I would have to go with Garnett, Rondo, Ray Allen, and Paul Pierce -- seasoned veterans with the heart, precision, and tenacity of champions.  I just think they will be the last team standing in that series.
