How To Bet On Celtics Heat –Celtics Look To Ride Momentum

Posted by Craig Parsons on 6/4/2012 8:19:27 PM

Paul Pierce could do nothing but watch as Miami Heat guard Dwayne Wade got a clean look at a potential game winning three-ball in the ding seconds of overtime in game four. Fortunately for Pierce, who had fouled out earlier in the extra frame, Wade missed the open look and the Boston Celtics held on for a 93-91 victory that evened the best-of-seven Eastern conference final at two wins each. Pierce will be back in the lineup for the Celtics as the series shifts back to Miami for what has been reduced to a best-of-three, and after draining 23 points in game three will need to be a key factor for Boston once again if it is going to have any chance at heading back home with the sport betting online chance to clinch the series.

Even with 23 points, Pierce wasn’t the Celtics’ best player, a distinction that belongs to Rajon Rondo, who once again came through in game four with 15 points and 15 assists. Rondo has emerged as the driving force on this veteran Boston team, and there is no doubt his comment about the Heat “crying in transition” will add even more fuel to the five of the series.

There may have been some strategy behind Rondo’s comments about Miami crying, as mind games have definitely played a role in this series with players like Kevin Garnett and Lebron James. However, Rondo’s contribution has been about much more than the mental aspect of the game, as the young point guard has emerged as the key to the Celtics’ playoff drive after spending the past couple of years in the shadow of Garnett, Pierce, and Ray Allen. While the game was won in overtime, a strong start was still the key for Boston, and that will be the focus once again as the atmosphere changes for game five.

Wade and company understand how close they came to bringing the series back home up three-games-to-one, and while the overall outlook has changed, the goal remains the same. Lebron James had never fouled out in a Heat uniform until game four, and if he had been available for those final minutes in game four it could have ended differently. Lost in this series is the fact that Miami is playing without its best big man in Chris Bosh, but for as much as the Heat have played well without him, the Celtics have to continue to force the issue down low to help slow down the home team.

The longer this series goes on, the more it would seem to slide in favor of the Heat, which are the younger team of the two. The Celtics will play this game as though they are on the verge of elimination knowing that a win would mean the chance to end the series at home in game six, and while they may not get the job done against a talented Miami squad, they should be able to at least keep it close within the betting spread.
