Miami Heat at Boston Celtics

Tuesday October 26, 2010 7:30 PM EST

Line: Miami -1

It has been a long offseason full of moves and shifts and power in the Eastern Conference now lies with the Miami Heat. If they are looking to start out the season with a win, they will have to get thru the defending Eastern Conference champions. The Heat went out and renewed their squad, while the Celtics went out and added some pieces as well.

What to watch for:

  • The Heat went out this offseason and brought in 2 time defending MVP Lebron James, Chris Bosh, and Eddie House to name a few. This is a much different roster than last seasons, and the team will not rely on Dwayne Wade like it has in the past.
  • Speaking of Dwayne Wade, his hamstring is feeling better and practiced Saturday. The only question will be, how will this big 3 gel? Will they come out and click right away? Anytime you have stars like the Heat do, you should be able to beat just about anybody.
  • The Celtics have won three straight home openers. They went out and got the O’Neal brothers, Jermaine and Shaq. It will be interesting as to how this Celtics team will do against the smaller Heat big men. The O’Neal’s will have to pick up for the injured Kenrick Perkins who could be out until February.
  • Everyone will be talking age with the Celtics this year. Ray Allen is 35, Paul Pierce is 33, Kevin Garnett is 34, and Shaq is 38. Not only will people talk about how old this team is, but how young their leader is. Rajon Rondo has shown that he has the talent and now the leadership to guide this team. Rondo is only 24 and has some more maturing to do.

The Celtics may be old, but the season is young. The Heat have the new big 3, meaning the “old” big 3 will be out looking to lead the Celtics to a win. If this game were in Miami, I would have to take the Heat. Since this game is in Boston and it will be beyond loud, I’ll take the defending Eastern Champions with a point in this sports pick.
