Play team ball and we win.

No hero ball.

Trust your teammates.

P.S. Play Time Lord, Brad.

The key of course is will the Celtics continue to play well against the zone or will Miami come up with some other wrinkle to put the Celtics off their game.  I think the Celtics have figured out the zone and the success they had against it should continue.  Now they just have to out play them overall.

Secondary storyline is how well Hayward bounces back.  Will he be on an upward trend and be even better or will the initial euphoria of being back wear off and the lack of conditioning and timing show more.  Miami will now have a better idea of how to handle Hayward so that could make it a little harder for him also.

In the end, this is a big game.  This is a huge step for one of these teams making the finals and really being the surprise team of the NBA (unless Denver beats LAL I guess).  This is good stuff.  Can't ask for more as a fan.

Referees:  Scott Foster, Tony Brothers, Tre Maddox

We have the evil duo of Foster and Brothers in this game.  With Scott Foster as the lead ref, it's hard to tell what we will get in this one.  At times he calls games one sided and is a tyrant with the whistle, calling every little thing and at other times he calls it evenly and lets them play.   Tim Donaghy described Foster as a company man who will do what is asked of him to keep his seniority among refs.  Foster was part of the 2010 Finals game 7 officiating crew that called the final quarter completely different than the first 3 quarters and very one sided for the Lakers with 21 free throws for the Lakers and 6 for the Celtics in the final 12 minutes.  He was voted the worst referee in the league by the players and coaches in an LA Times article.   The Celtics are 8-2 with Foster in their last 10 games and 3-0 in the playoffs so far with him calling the game.  Miami is 5-5 in their last 10 and 1-0 with Foster in the playoffs.  He was lead official for Game 7 vs the Raptors, which was one of the best officiated games of the playoffs.   He is definitely an x-factor.   

 Tony Brothers brings angst to every team's fan base when they see him on the officiating team.  He was voted the worst ref in the league by 24.5% of the players in their recent survey.  With Brothers, you never know what you will get.  Sometimes he calls everything on both teams.  Sometimes he lets both teams play.  And, sometimes he calls a game one sided for one of the teams. Basically, he is just bad.   Hopefully we get the Tony Brothers that lets them play both ways in this game.  Usually when fans of any team sees Brothers calling their games, they cringe.  Both teams are 5-5 in their last 10 games with Brothers. He called Games 2 and 6 of the Toronto series.  The third ref Tre Maddox hasn't been particularly good or bad in the past.

i agree. if the celtics win this one it means the heat cant handle a celtics team with hayward and the celtics win the series. miami barely won the first two games when hayward was missing.

celtics win this one by being VERY aggressive on defense and attacking the basket on offense.

gooooooooooooooooooooooo celtics!!!  ;D

Must win

I expect Heat to try to ram the basket early and try to pick on Theis

Also try to pick on Walker

I want Walker to stick to guarding Crowder

I'd feel better about this game if we could eliminate those stretches where we completely forget how to defend a pick-and-roll.  How many dunks does Bam have in the last two games? 

That has really been the only consistent source of easy buckets for the Heat.  Take that away as well as we're able, continue to grill Robinson and Herro at the other end, and let's go.  Keep attacking the rim!

I'm just gonna turn the game off at the 3rd quarter my brain can't handle the lottery team that is the 3rd quarter Celtics.

..........

I feel like Brothers wasn't that bad in the last couple of games (tho we lost them), it's more of an evil eye at this point. Probably))
Foster is interesting, NBA really values him :blank:

I'm not sure what to make of this 3Q woes. Usually, 3Q is when teams make adjustments during the halftime break and players prepare mentally for the 2H. But we should be good in both cases... I'm more positive towards 3Q going forward.

I'd feel better about this game if Brad had integrated RW3 into the rotation, so that we can sustain assault that is surely to come from Bam.  Theis and small ball will fall short I fear.
