The Boston Celtics took down the Miami Heat in their season opener last October, much to the surprise of the many who had them pegged as almost certain NBA finalists.
The situation hasn’t exactly improved ever since.
Although the Heat have put together a solid 2010-11 campaign - one that has seen them rise to the top of the NBA pile and then back down again (they currently trail the Chicago Bulls in the East) - they’ll have to prove that they can defeat Boston if they hope to compete for a championship this summer.
In three meetings so far, the Celtics have swept the board, winning by eight, five and three points in October, November and February respectively. Can Miami avoid the season sweep with a win this Sunday?
