There Are Some Weird Matchups

On the Celtics’ side, Kevin Garnett is technically guarding Shane Battier, though he’s really guarding the empty spot right around the free-throw line.

On the Heat’s side, LeBron James is still on Paul Pierce, but Shane Battier (who guarded David West against the Pacers) is on Brandon Bass, not Kevin Garnett. Garnett, so far, has had his way with Ronny Turiaf.

Both teams like to run off missed shots, so matching up in transition will be critically important.
