SOMETHING TO PONDER
The Miami Heat have carried themselves like a championship-level team all postseason. But one problem for Miami could be their inexperience. Three of their eight best players are either rookies or second-year players who’ve never been to playoffs before, let alone the Conference Finals.
The Celtics have a young team too, but this isn’t their first rodeo. Boston is a perennial playoff squad and went toe-to-toe with LeBron James in the Conference Finals just two years ago. And when it comes to the playoffs, experience matters. In terms of how much it matters, well, we’re about to find out.
