The winner will go on to play the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA Finals. James destroyed the Celts to the tune of 45 points and 15 rebounds en route to a 98-79 Celtics win.
Is Miami the team who dominated every facet of the game in Game 6 or the team that looked lackluster in losing games 3 thru 5? That is the thing on everyone’s mind regarding this game. We think the Heat will be really tough to beat, but we fully expect the Celtics to come out ready to play. We think the Heat will win, but will take the Celtics and the points on what seems like a very high spread so before getting down on game seven read online sportsbook reviews.
