Take the Celtics. After a sluggish start to Game 5 the Celtics really turned it on in the second half to take it to the Miami Heat. I like the Celtics to ride that momentum into Game 6, another do or die game for the C's. Daniel Theis had a really nice game for Boston the other night and he is key in busting the Miami zone. When he catches the ball in the middle of the Heat zone he becomes an instant threat because he's more than capable of knocking down the foul line jumper. The Heat have to show him respect and when they do that leaves open good shooters on the outside. The Celtics are at their best when they can get out and run so I look for them to push the pace and force Game 7.
