Is the Boston Three Party about to end?

It's PLAYOFF TIME, so I don't think I even have to tell you to... JUMP!
Day 21 Rewind
LA Lakers 92, Dallas Mavericks 98 (Mavs lead 3-0)
Silver Screen and Roll vs Mavs Moneyball
I am shocked that the defending world champion LA Lakers are down 0-3 to the Mavs. If there's any team that can come back from that it's Phil Jackson, Kobe Bryant, and crew. If there's any team that can choke away this lead it's Dirk Nowitzki's Mavs. Still, I'm looking for the Mavs to advance to the 2011 Western Conference Finals in 2 more games or less. Very impressive work by the Mavs. I didn't think they had it in them.
Chicago Bulls 99, Atlanta Hawks 82 (Bulls lead 2-1)
Blog-a-Bull vs Peachtree Hoops
I'm impressed the Hawks got this far and I'm still not counting them out. I bet the Bulls are sure glad they didn't take Michael Beasley #1 overall in the 2008 NBA Draft. Derrick Rose. Derrick Rose.
Onward to today's action...
Oklahoma City Thunder @ Memphis Grizzlies (Series tied 1-1)
Welcome to Loud City vs Straight Outta Vancouver
2pm PST | ESPN
All I can say is that aren't you glad we're watching these two teams instead of the Spurs of San Antonio Snore fame sweeping the Nuggets?
Prediction: Memphis comes up with the W to give the hometown fans a (minor) break from the flooding drama.
Miami Heat @ Boston Celtics (Heat lead 2-0)
Peninsula is Mightier vs CelticsBlog
5pm PST | ABC
You can be sure the Celtics aren't going down without a fight. This game is going to be intense. If LeBron, D-Wade, and the Heat really want this, they're going to have to bring it.
Prediction: Celtics by 10
