Boston Celtics at Miami Heat

12/27/11

8:00 PM Eastern Time

TV: TNT

American Airlines Arena in Miami, FL

2010-11 Records:

Boston: 56-26 (3rd in the Eastern Conference)

Miami: 58-24 (2nd in the Eastern Conference)

Players of interest:

Boston: Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce

Miami: Lebron James, Chris Bosh, Dwayne Wade

Why you want to watch:

A rematch of the 2011 eastern conference semi finals that saw Miami take
out Boston quickly in 5 games. There have been minimal changes since these
2 teams last met in the playoffs. Boston has lost Jeff Green and Glen Davis
and replaced them with Brandon Bass and Sasha Pavlovic. Miami acquired
Shane Battier in free agency and an impressive rookie thus far, Norris Cole
in the draft. The core players, Boston’s Garnett, Pierce, Rondo & Allen and
Miami’s James, Bosh and Wade, are unchanged. Miami is coming off an
impressive blow out win in Dallas with Lebron leading the way with 37
points. Boston is coming off a narrow defeat to the Knicks on Christmas
Day. Boston might be without Paul Pierce for a 2nd game as he is being
listed as doubtful for tonight’s game.
