Boston Celtics fans are nervous about this series, and justifiably so. The shocking dogfight with the Atlanta Hawks gave everyone who cares about the Green & White an uneasy feeling, and now they must deal with LeBron and the James Gang.
On paper, the C’s have an infinitely better team than the Cavs; but the games aren’t played on paper, and LeBron has shown a frightening ability to conquer superior teams nearly by his lonesome.
Tonight, the series tips off in Beantown, and the Celtics will be looking to get off on the right foot since the road hasn’t exactly been friendly to them so far in this postseason.
For the Cavs, the key is for LeBron’s teammates to play solid defense, and do enough damage on the offensive end and hope that he can take over down the stretch. This, obviously, is a lot easier said than done.
