2012 NBA Playoffs: Eastern Conference Finals Predictions

(2) Miami Heat vs. (4) Boston Celtics
Quixem Ramirez
Interestingly enough, Boston won three out of four games against Miami this season by an average of 9.8 points per 100 possessions. Their field goal percentage was 50.5% and they converted on 16-of-21 (76.2%) corner 3-pointers. I don’t feel confident about my pick but I’m picking Miami regardless of what stats tell me to the contrary. Prediction: Heat in six.
Joe Bendiez You might as well slide the Heat in to the Finals. There’s no doubt in my mind Miami will take this series. And it’s because they are a great team, but look at the Celtics. They struggled to knock off the Sixers and Hawks, and there is not much they will be able to throw at Miami to contain Dwyane Wade and LeBron James. Miami will be well rested for whoever comes out of a potentially long Spurs-Thunder series. Prediction: Heat in five.
