    Any predictions?

    I say Cavs in 5.

    I don't care if LeBron James is the best basketball player in the world. No. 1 seeds should NEVER be swept.

    The Celtics have one of the best home courts in the NBA, and Brad Stevens is great at making adjustments. I'll be disapppointed if the Cs do not at least win a game.

    Tonight should be their best shot at doing so.

    Also, the ECF will be LeGarrette Blounts' final appearance at the Garden. Will be a huge loss for the Celtics :(

    Out of any game in this series, the Celtics' best shot is to win Game 1 and capitalize on some rust with the Cavs. If they don't win this one, then no game looks winnable for them in this series. Good luck, though. I'm rooting for the Celtics.

    Game 1 is a must win, I think we get it and then lose next 4.

    Cavs in 6. We win one of the first 2 and win game 5 to force a six.

    One game we win cause the Cavs play below their level and one we win cause the Celtics have a great game from both their bench/starters.

    Because if you can compete with the best in the league it helps you going forward. And is entertaining.

    That being said this ends in 4.

    I'm going to say Cavs in six. I don't think it's quite as lopsided as some others here do.

    I'll go with Cavs in five. This Celtics team just doesn't have the offensive firepower to compete.

    Cavs have not fired a shot in anger in...how long? They have no reason to take Boston seriously.

    Celts have been grinding it out in tough series every other day last three weeks. They win tonight, going away.

    After that...

    I give celts a lot of credit but they're going to be crushed. Hopefully not totally humiliated, but most likely they lose in 4. Swept.

    Yeah I actually expect Boston to win tonight. After that, I expect Cleveland to rip off their head and **** down their neck.

    I will go out on a limb and say Cavs in 6 games. I think thats the ceiling for the Celtics this year. I would love to see this go 7 games but I honestly think there is less than a 15-20% chance of that happening.
