In with the new: Heat blow past aging Celts in Game 1
The fresh young legs of the Miami Heat took it to the retirement-bound Celtics in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Monday, beating Boston 93-79.
The Cs had no answer for LeBron James, who toyed with Boston on his wnday to grabbing 32 points and 13 rebounds.
Miami’s victory has people thinking that even without an injured Chris Bosh, the series will be over before it even begins.
@TheHerd the celtics can win, only if they have a time machine.

However, there was a lot of talk that the game was poorly officiated.
