Know thy enemy, by most accounts the Celtics have overcome the Miami Heat in most NBA power rankings. With a win last night, the Celtics have edged the Heat in the standings.
Injuries are going to happen in every NBA season and much is said about a team from which the manner they deal with the adversity. The Celtics were able to rely on their reserves to keep the team afloat whilst some key members nursed injuries and are 7-3 in their last 10 despite losing KG for nine games.
Chris Bosh has already been ruled out of tonight’s game with an ankle injury, Dwayne Wade expects to play, but may be limited with a knee injury and LeBron James is leaning towards playing tonight despite missing a few games and not participating in this morning’s shoot around.
The Heat are not made to withstand any sort of injuries to the Big 3 and are currently riding a three game losing streak. They’ll face a tough Atlanta team tonight.
As a Celtic fan, each loss is a step closer to a better seed in the playoffs and we wish the Heat’s Big 3 a full recovery, we just hope they’ll rack up a few more losses along the way.
