Default EC PLAYOFFS; ROUND 2: (1) CLE CAVS VS (4) BOS CELTICS

STARTERS:

CLE

Mo Williams
Anthony Parker
Lebron James
Antawn Jamison
Shaquille O'Neal

BOS

Rajon Rondo
Ray Allen
Paul Pierce
Kevin Garnett
Kendrick Perkins

KEY ROTATION PLAYERS:

CLE

Delonte West
Anderon Varajao
Zydrunas Ilgauskas


BOS

Tony Allen
Glen Davis
Rasheed Wallace


Key Matchups:

The biggest key to this series is obviously how the Celtics defend Lebron, whether they dont converge as much on the isos and pick and rolls, or if theyre gonna try and make the others make plays and shots.

But the 2nd biggest thing is Jamison/KG. If KG can still move well enough to guard the screen rolls/pops, and also BOS will need to get him the ball more in the post and he needs to take advantage and win the matchup outright for the Celtics to have a chance.

This is also the series BOS got Sheed for, so its time for him to make his money for the first time this year.


PREDICTION:

This series really is unpredictable in that its hard to tell if the BOS team that showed up i nthe 1st rd is the real BOS team or the one from the reg season. Was it just because they played a 1 man army in the 1st rd they looked so good? If Boston can continue their great roadplay then this series will go 7. I think Cavs in 7, and then BOS will rebuild in the offseason. I really hope the Celtics beat the shit out of them and do win somehow though.

I'm really not sure about this series.

Lakers vs. Cavs
Lakers vs. Boston
Lakers vs. Orlando

All of those would be heated finals.

I wonder who's the better PG? rondo or williams?

I thought about it hard on who's better talent wise, statistic wise, and if they were switched would the team be better or worse?

Woot woot! Go Cavs! Was slightly worried at the beginning ... hope LeBron's elbow holds up.
