It's Demolition Time

Honestly the Celtics are going to be tired tonight. They just got taken to the limit in a grueling 7 game series with the younger, faster, and just dumb enough to think they have a chance baby Bulls. Well this will just be another reason for everyone to doubt the heart of this team (Which I think the Celtics have displayed more this year than last. If you can imagine having more heart than the '07 World Championship team). Honestly the Magic are bigger and stronger down low. Besides Perkins the Celtics don't have anyone who can bang bodies with Howard. Honestly Howard is a specimen, but we have seen dunk champions both good and bad come and go in the playoffs.

Ultimately Perk will have to limit Howard. Otherwise I see Ray Allen continuing his strong performance in this year's playoffs. Paul Pierce may suffer the most since he looked tired in Game 1 versus the Bulls. Rondo will have to regain some of his confidence after losing his ability to take it to the hoop in games 6 & 7. I think he will and is the second most vital part of the Celtics recipe for success against the Magic. He should be up to the challenge and I don't see "Skip to my Lou" a.k.a. Raefer Allston locking down Rondo for any period of time. I'll miss Tommy Heinsohn's A++ game this round since the games will be on TNT/ESPN, but the Celtics mystic will remain.

In the end I think the Celtics will have to get some help from the 6th man. The crowd has been up to it thus far. The Gahden will be rocking and rolling tonight. It's Demolition Time!
