So the Celtics looked tired and disinterested in general, and got beat by the Heat earlier. But as I mentioned before, whatever the result of the East Finals is, that does not matter anymore in my DTTF picks. Due to instances in the earlier rounds, I already picked Paul Pierce (after Rondo got suspended), LeBron James (after a 1-2 deficit) and Kevin Garnett (on a Game 7). I already chose Rajon Rondo (32 PRA in Game 1), so I am already out of quality Celtic picks. The only lone quality picks I have are with the Miami in Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh (if healthy); and the rest are fillers.
- Dwyane Wade -- 32 PRA and being aggressive enough to pick up the slack off Bosh's absence. Not picking him yet, but will do when they visit Boston because he plays better on the road.
- Ray Allen -- 15 PRA and being ineffective. Yes he had big fourth quarters, but in DTTF we need him to go at it the whole game. Not picking him unless he gets one passable full game under his belt.
- Brandon Bass -- a third of DTTF groaned in agony after that 11 PRA showing in Game 1, when he failed to capitalize on the Heat's lack of size inside. What is worse than a filler is an inconsistent filler.
- Mario Chalmers -- I only expect about 19 PRA from him, but he is at least consistent at that PRA, with a few 20+ PRA now and then. In Game 1, he shot 0 of 6 from the trey and 3 of 9 from the field, and still got 18 PRA. I am picking him, and hoping he gets his shots this time.
