Boston has some changes to make after getting handled easily in Game 1. Doc Rivers talks above about taking away the layups Miami got — the Celtics players talked about being more physical. What Rivers really needs to do is find a way to get more points on the board because this isn’t Philadelphia and 79 points will not have you in the game now.

Erik Spoelstra plays it safely right down the middle of the fairway with an iron off the tee — we respect them, we haven’t proven anything yet, they are a championship team that will be hard to beat.

    Spo is correct… Boston is a tough veteran team that has enough weapons to steal a game in Miami and if Rondo gets going they are very tricky… but with that being said if Miami and specifically Wade and Lebron continue to perform at the level they have been both offensively and defensively they should take the C’s down in 5.

    It’s best for him to “play it safe” right now. If he shows to much overconfidence or not enough, he risks planting the “if I dont take the last shot I can’t be blamed for missing.” seed in LBJ’S fragile mind. Way to go coach.
