The Age Factor-Cavs vs. Celtics

Posted on: May 1, 2010 3:56 pm

On the whole, the Cavs are a much younger, deeper team than the Boston Celtics. Seeing how Boston has old players such as Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and Rasheed Wallace, you would have to think that these guys might not have as much endurance as players like LeBron James, Antawn Jamison, Mo Williams, Anthony Parker, and Delonte West.

What the Cavs need to do is they need to use a full court style offense. Take advantage of Boston's aged lineup, wear them out. If the Cavs do that, this series could be over very quickly.

What the Celtics need to do is force the Cavs to play a half-court game. The Celtics know that age is against them. They have to prevent the Cavs from running around. If the Cavs get a lot of fast break opportunities, the Celtics are in trouble right away.If they slow the Cavs down, this could easily turn into a six or seven game series.

The only advantage age gives Boston is the level of experience they have. Boston is know to have a really good defense. I think the fact that this is "renewed rivalry", this will be a very interesting series.

The Age Factor-Cavs vs. Celtics

this will be a very interesting series.
It should be, but the Cav's should take the Series in 5 maybe 6, just because they are Boston but, they're also OLD too.

Should be a great Series!
