Well it all comes down to one game for the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat. The winner of tonight's game will go on to face the Thunder for the championship of the world.
Miami has struggled throughout the playoffs, which can be attributed to Chris Bosh being hurt for the majority of their Celtics series and the failure of their role players to step up when they need them the most. Despite their lack of execution on the offensive end, they have managed to bring the series back to even thanks to the stellar play of Lebron James.
He put the team on his shoulders and had one of the best playoff games in his career in game 6. He went on to score an amazing 45 points, and they will need the same type of production from him if they want to come out the victors tonight.
The Celtics have just as much to prove tonight. They have played exceptional well until game 6, and Doc Rivers says this is the year that they win another championship. Their cause is certainly helped thanks to the stellar play of Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett. They have been pivotal in this series, and Garnett has yet to show his aging stature.
They had an awful night in game 6. Paul Pierce had an awful night only scoring 9 points, and Garnett did as well only scoring 12. They will need these two to pick it up in game 7 if they want to prevail. Rondo lead the Celtics in their 79-98 loss scoring 21 points, but he will need to decrease the amount of turnovers as much as possible to give them a chance.
Game 7 is up for grabs for both teams. It will come down to every possession, every hustle play, and every loose ball that hits the ground. It will be interesting to see who wants it the most. Will the Heat be able to have the same type of night from Lebron as they did in game 6? Will the Celtics change defensive strategies in order to force the ball into someone else's hands? Only time will tell, but it has the makings to be a classic. Stay tuned.
