Jackie MacMullan over at ESPN Boston wrote up a column early this morning making a compelling argument why the Celtics are going to win Game 3 tonight. She starts off with "We should know better than to count out this group when its back is against the wall." Below are her 10 reasons. Click here to read her full summaries.

1. They are playing at home 

2. The Heat have to perform on the road 

3. Pierce is due to bust out 

4. KG will get named called early and often

5. Shaq expected to play Saturday

6. Boston's bench versus Miami's bench

7. The Celtics still haven't played their best basketball

8. LeBron is human. At least we think he is

9. Rivers has so incessantly stressed the need for his team to attack the basket there's a chance his guys might actually listen

10. The Celtics understand their season on the line

    Winning 4 straight is not far off at all.
    Its likely. Its very doable - but the C's will HAVE to bring EVERYTHING THEY'VE GOT from here on out.

    Hopefully they can do it.

    Shaq is becoming bigfoot; I keep hearing about sightings but I never see him myself.

    Shaq can help the team, even if all he does is clog the middle and force Miami into jumpshots; hopefully Z does not draw him 15 feet away from the basket all night.

    The Celts still have a chance to win the series; they have the next two games at home and Miami is fully capable of 35% shooting night or a meltdown. I hope this series goes to game 7; it will feel like the NBA Finals.

    I like Jackie because she's not a homer and she's not a hater, she tries to be impartial and she's been around the Celtics for a long time.

    I thought the Celtics would take 1 in Miami out of those first 2 games but now that they're down 2-0 I bet the house that they come out and in game 3. To me, there's absolutely no chance of them losing this game tonight. I put everything on it, these guys don't want their last year as a real "big 3" to go down by losing to the hated Heat and their 3 divas.
