Definitely Miami. Celtics are always a scary team to see come playoff time. I think we match up well against the Heat. The series should be extremely entertaining and I could definitely see Melo going into beast mode against Lebron.
Playing Boston the last game of the regular season will likely present a very strange dynamic. The starters will see limited action but the scrubs could determine the 2 and 3 seed as well as the 6 and 7 seed and if the two teams will meet days later in the 1st round.
i went with boston.. the celtics are an old battered up team with a weak bench and little chemistry since the perkins trade. I feel like the heat are gonna go off in the playoffs and play to there caliber, i know the celtics finished weak last regular season but the team this year and the team last year are not the same, i dont fear them at all, but like the OP said, be careful what you wish for
Knicks will clinch the 6 seed assuming Orlando hangs on to the double digit lead vs Philadelphia. I might be wrong, but I think if Miami beats Atlanta and Boston ends up losing to the Wizards, the Celtics will lock up the 3 seed.
