The Night started off with a bang in AmericanAirlines Arena as the Miami Heat received their Championship Ring and went on to defeat the Boston Celtics in a 120-107 victory. All eyes were on the Miami Heat as they recently added some big name veterans to the teams (Ray Lewis and Ray Allen).
Both Players proved to be big assets as they made key baskets while Wade and Lebron were getting rest. The star of the Night was Mario Chalmers who seemingly broke down the Boston Celtics Defense and found players for easy baskets. Mario Chalmers finished the game with 11 assists.
The Boston Celtics looked like a new team on Opening Night as they ran the floor and played a much faster pace offense. The additions of Jason Terry and Courtney Lee appear to be paying off already for the Celtics.
As the season goes on, look for the team to gel even more and get easier baskets with Rondo running the point like no other guard in the league.
The King himself, Lebron James, Left the game at the 3rd quarter with Leg Cramps, he returned then shortly left again for the rest of the game. It doesn’t appear it was serious injury. Look for him to bounce back quickly as he has his entire career.
