    I had more enjoyment out of the first round series than i do with the Cs playing the 76ers...it's just boring IMO when you play the 76ers..not sure why.

    The Celtics are playing stupid basketball as the Sixers are boring. Game 7. Can you believe it?

    Didn't help that the whistles seemed to be in favor of Philly last night either. But I agree, the C's did enough to lose that game on their own. Even without the phantom whistle here and there. Bad news for them should they advance. If the Heat win tonight, they get one more day of rest than Boston does. That said, I firmly expect the whistles to be in Indiana's favor tonight. A Game 7 = more money in Stern's pocket.

    Unfortunately Kontra, your last point appears to stand true given the NBA Playoff landscape.

    BEAT, maybe. But destroy? Probably not. Especially not without Bosh.

    There's no doubt that they're tired but I don't think you're giving your team enough credit. I think they have enough left in the tank to make a run for it.

    Thats why I think Miami will win. Their D is excellent but so is Miami's. Considering the way things have transpired in the playoffs, I think Miami will have a much easier time scoring on Boston than Boston will Miami.

    thats 1 of the many reasons why boston may only win 1..because i dont see them winning in miami

    even if they beat miami..they would be destroyed in finals..so i would rather them lose to miami and see miami get destroyed

    West gets home court no matter who represents them. That has to be meaningful somehow.

    The series is boring because both teams ranked in the top 5 for PPG against. The sixers perimeter defenders are bothersome but our interior is baby food besides Elton Brand. I will give Lavoy some credit though he has played KG as well as can be expected. We have no answer for him when he is rested and ready to play. Nobody likes a defensive struggle these days.

    It's like a lesser Spurs vs Pistons. Sixers mirror the pistons as we don't have a 20ppg scorer and its offense by committee.

    Miami has Spectacular Perimeter D they have so much speed and length out there.... their Interior D is not spectacular. The Spurs and Thunder both have better interior Defenses. David West and Hibbert would have destroyed had they had a pass 1st PG. Miami had no answer for them.

    The play of Collison, George, Hill and Barbosa cost the Pacers that series. Despite their huge inside advantage, these guys decided it would be smart to press the ball and shoot from the perimeter all series. It must have driven Vogel nuts.

    It's all about flashiness (or lack thereof)..........the 76ers do all the little things well. They player solid/scrappy defense and dive for loose balls. That will keep them in ballgames but certainly does not offer much to viewers in terms of entertainment factor.

    The same is true for all other defense oriented teams in sports.
