NBA Playoffs 2012 Game Thread: Eastern Conference Finals Tip Off in Miami

Wouldn't you rather look at this picture of Carnival celebrants than one of LeBron or Garnett? I thought so.

Memorial Day weekend concludes tonight with the opening of the Eastern Conference Finals in Miami as the Celtics face the Heat. Chris Bosh is still out indefinitely, while the Celtics have lost rising young guard Avery Bradley for the rest of the postseason due to a shoulder injury.

The Spurs beat the Thunder in game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, 101-98, behind Manu Ginobili's 26 points. It wasn't even a very impressive performance by the Spurs, they trailed much of the way, but then took care of business in the fourth like a well-oiled machine. San Antonio hasn't lost a game since April 11th, and keep in mind that includes a couple at the end of the regular season where they sat players since they had nothing to play for.
