The Boston Celtics may have dropped their opening day matchup to the Miami Heat this year, but that doesn’t mean the C’s aren’t still one of the few teams who have LeBron James’ number. Regardless of what the NBA odds may have predicted at the time, the Celtics have gone a combined 6-2 against Miami over the course of the last two regular seasons.
This Sunday, when the two teams meet for the first time since October, they’ll do so coming from very different vantage points. While the reigning champion Heat have thrived in 2012-13, to the point where they’re overwhelming favorites in the NBA futures, the Celtics have been struggling to answer lingering questions all season long.
Has the window closed on the aging Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce? Will Ray Allen’s absence — who now suits up for, of all teams, Miami — prove to be the difference in Beantown?
As a result of those questions, the once-formidable Boston juggernaut now has just 25-1 odds of winning the NBA championship.
