2010 NBA Playoffs – Cavaliers vs Celtics first round series was already settled. Here is now the second round best of seven series on where boys are separated from men. One of the talked of the town is the rematch between Cleveland Cavaliers versus 2008 NBA Champion Boston Celtics. The two team first meet on 2008 NBA Eastern Conference Final where Cavaliers was eliminated by Celtics in Game 7 do or die game.
This could be a payback time for Cavaliers. However this season playoff will not come easy, LeBron James and the Cavaliers have been on a two year longing to win their first ever franchise title. In other side Boston Celtics is proving their way that they can still put up defensive pressure when they need to do as they eliminated the hot Miami heat lead by Dwane Wade on the first round. Cavaliers was the reigning best team in the league, concerns for them not to gain the title is the right elbow injury of LeBron James the best player in the series. Another factor to be considered in Cavaliers is the presence of the old giant Shaquille O’Neal but going against Boston’s screen and rolls and ball movement sport analyst consider that he may be a defensive liability for the team.
Whatever the circumstances arises I believe that this rematch will surely go to the distance for another game 7 do or die game. Game 1 is schedule to be play on May 01, 2010.
For the record here are the team starting five. For the Cleveland Cavaliers: Mo Williams, Anthony Parker, LeBron James, Antawn Jamison and Shaquille O’Neil while for Boston Celtics: Rajon Rondo, Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Kendrick Perkins. So be ready for this compact action of 2010 NBA Playoffs – Cavaliers vs Celtics.
