First it was the Oklahoma City Thunder Thursday night surging for the win against the San Antonio Spurs. Now it’s the Boston Celtics who practically rose from the dead to overtake the Miami Heat, 101-91. I would like to be able to say that this was a game of Rajon Rondo headband revenge but it actually was a team effort with a lot of help from the bench. Keyon Dooling came off the Celtics bench in the first quarter to score 7 straight points. It was an exciting game for Kevin Garnett who scored 24 points and proved he can do 8 fist pushups in a row. Rajon Rondo scored 21 points for Celtics which is an obvious drop from 41 in the previous game but I think he’ll take it since they won.
It was a very sad second half for the Heat who at the start of the 4th quarter were trailing by 24 points. Even then I thought maybe they are going to do something amazing but alas all they did was close the gap some. LeBron James scored 24 points for the Heat. James seemed to be struggling when they moved him to the center position towards the end. Dwayne Wade scored 18 points but was missing a lot of shots. Not only was Wade missing shots but for the first time ever he didn’t make it the foul line. Which Heat could have used since they were shooting 10 of 20 from the line.
The Celtics plan was to keep the Heat from scoring and man did it work. Will it work again on Sunday for Game 4, we’ll see.
