Bring On LeBron!

What a defensive performance by the Celtics in Game 7 today against the Atlanta Hawks.

Everything they haven’t done in this series, they did here; helping each other, communicating, smothering Joe Johnson, and playing physical (just ask Zaza Pachulia after Kevin Garnett put him on his butt).

Of course, we still don’t know if this team can win on the road in the postseason. But Mike Dowling points out that Cleveland is probably a better matchup for Boston. Instead of athlete after athlete, Cleveland offers LeBron James and a bunch of flat footed types, including the slow Zyndrunas Illgauskas, Wally Szczerbiak, and the aging Ben Wallace. Look to see a lot of “Sideshow Bob” Anderson Varejao and his high energy game on Garnett if he eats the other big men alive.

Here’s the schedule for Round 2. Cheap plug alert: Game 3 is right here on Channel 5 Saturday night.

Game 2 – Thu May 8 Cleveland at Boston 7:00PM ESPN
