NBA Eastern Conference Finals

Now let’s shift from the LeBron talk and focus on the 2 teams left in the Eastern Conference. We have the defending Conference Champs the Orlando Magic taking on the ageless Boston Celtics. I am inclined to pick Orlando to win this series, yet I do not believe it will be a walk in the park. The Celtics are peaking once again when it matters most, THE PLAYOFFS!!! Say what you may about the Celtics “upsetting” the LeBrons, but the better “TEAM” won that series. Boston is a very dangerous team, a very balanced team and should not be taken lightly. Orlando has yet to lose a game in this year’s playoffs, they are a strong 8-0!! They have yet to be really challenged and should be by the Celtics. This is not the same Magic team that made it to last year’s NBA Finals. They have a “healthy” Jameer Nelson and a rejuvanated Vince Carter who is taking the place of Hedo Turkoglu on this year’s roster. The addition of Vince and Matt Barnes might be the difference in this series, Barnes is an added defensive weapon to use on Paul Pierce as well as Mikael Peitrus. Orlando’s depth should be the key in this series, make no mistake Boston’s bench of Glen Davis and Tony Allen will come to play. If Boston is to beat Orlando, those two young players will need to make an even bigger impact than they did in the Cleveland series. Either way I am looking forward to 3:30 pm on Sunday to watch Game 1 of this exciting series!! Who do you think is going to win and in how many games will it take? I’m taking the Magic in 6.
