Kemba Walker shared his expectations for the Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics.
The star of the Celtics is expecting ‘a dog fight, a war’ between the two teams.
“It’s going to be a dog fight. It’s going to be a war. I’m looking forward to it,” Walker said, per Chris Grenham of Forbes.
“We’ve just got to be locked in. We’ve got to do it all for a very long time, especially defensively. Those guys have so many different ways they can score the basketball.
We’re going to have to be really locked into their shooters, really locked into Jimmy, obviously Bam [Adebayo], who’s just a different kind of big who can do pretty much everything.
So, we’re versatile, but so are they. We’re just going to have to figure ways out to get stops consistently,” Walker said about the challenge of facing the Heat, via Tim Reynolds of AP.
Walker will play in the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time in his career. Game 1 is on Tuesday.
