The Celtics really have done everything that they can over the course of the last two games to just barely stick around with the Heat. Were they the better side in Game 3? Absolutely. But do we think that Ray Allen is going to be able to play 38 minutes without being a humongous defensive liability? Do we think that Paul Pierce is going to go off for 24 points again? Do we think that Kevin Garnett is going to be able to take care of the bigs for the Heat on both sides of the court? No. No. And no. In the end, Miami is still the better of these teams, and Dwyane Wade probably isn’t going to go the entire game without getting to the charity stripe. LeBron James isn’t going to shoot 1-of-5 from the stripe either, and the team as a whole won’t go 10-of-20. Even going 17-of-20 would have made that game a heck of a lot closer on Friday night. In the end, Miami is the better team for sure, and we think that the oddsmakers are spot on with the fact that the Heat have become the favorites for this game after being mediocre in Game 3.
