Garnett is the KEY - Heat need 2/3 of their Big Three to compete and win

Scorers like Dwayne Wade and LeBron James can be slowed down, but over the long haul they're going to get theirs. The keys with them are forcing them into tougher, challenged shots and holding them to lower percentages. Ultimately, they're getting to double figures no matter what.
Garnett MUST hold down Chris Bosh, though.
I think the Celtics can plan to stop LeBron OR D-Wade, but not both. This means one of the two will have a decent night with 25-30 points no matter what. The other must be held below 20 points and 40% shooting.
But if Bosh gets going, the Heat become infinitely tougher. This must not happen. This is Garnett's series.
