The Heat will face the Celtics in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. These are 2 very good teams but Butler's the best player on the court. Miami's coming off a big upset over the Bucks while Boston just ended a 7 game series against a Toronto team that I felt they should've put away in 6 at most. Boston's a very talented and athletic team but Miami's very talented too and While the Heat have a lot of talent too, play hard every time out and had more rest. The Celtics had quite a bit of rest too after their 7 game series thanks to some NFL action. Both teams have great roleplayers but this could be the 1 spot where Boston has the edge. However, I don't think they're that much better than their opponents and Miami has 2 big advantages in Butler and Bam. Theis has been playing well but I don't think he matches up well against Bam. This should be another great series but I have to give the edge to the Heat until I see something to change my mind about that. Let's take the points with the Heat.
