The conference finals are going strong in both the Eastern and Western Conference.
The Celtics are in a 2-0 hole against the Miami Heat. Quite frankly, the Celtics are looking old, and the Heat are being powered by Lebron James and Dwayne Wade. I never want to rule out the heart of the Celtics, but sometimes their aging bodies cooperate. Game 3 is tonight in Boston, and I’m pulling for the Celtics.
The Spurs are up 2-1 over the Oklahoma City Thunder. I still hold out some hope that the Thunder can take this series, after two close games in San Antonio, and then a 20 point drubbing of the Spurs last night. Congratulations to the Spurs for an unbelievable 20 game winning streak coming to an end last night — they’ve defied the critics and expert predictions with that incredible streak, with their stars that aren’t getting any younger.
