Should Mike Brown change his coaching style?

I have to wonder what really works best for the Cavs. Should Mike Brown adopt to Steph Van Gundy's coaching style, using emotional power to rally the Cavs? Or is just best to stick to his guns, that is being the calm and collected coach he usually is. Of course, recently he let the Cavs have it, but he usually doesn't get angry. I have to wonder if Mike Brown is about to change as a coach. Is it for the best that he changes? This could be interesting.

The Age Factor-Cavs vs. Celtics

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.
