It looked like the Boston Celtics might totally sweep the shit out of the Miami Heat but I knew the Heat would return. The Heat came from a 18 point deficit to tie with the Celtics and push the game into overtime. But is just wasn’t enough the Celtics won 93-91.
The usual things happened in the game Paul Pierce fouled out with 4:22 left on the clock. At least Pierce stuck around to watch the rest of the game this time. And boy was he happy because he got to see MVP LeBron James foul out with 1:51 left in overtime. It was only the 4th time in James’ NBA career that he fouled out of a game. He couldn’t have picked a worse time to have it happen. It was James’ 3-pointer that tied the game and sent it into overtime. Without him everything fell to Dwayne Wade. With just 21 seconds on the clock Wade went for a 3-pointer that would have won the Heat the game. Instead of having that instant amazing moment the ball bounced off the rim and the Celtics tied the series, 2-2.
The big weapon for the Celtics is head band sporting Rajon Rondo is proving he’s in it to win it. No Rondo didn’t score the most points tonight for the Boston Celtics but he did have 15 assists. This makes 25 assist over the past two games for Rondo. Without Rondo setting up shots the Celtics would be screwed against the Miami Heat’s scoring machines-James and Wade. For the Heat James scored 29 points and had 17 turnover. Wade (we are getting towards the end of the article have you forgiven him yet?) scored 20 points.
Pierce scored 23 points for the Celtics before his departure. Kevin Garnett had 17 points and no push ups. If this trend of everyone only winning home continues the Heat might have a chance of coming back in Game 5.
The media got obsessed with Chris Bosh returning. There is no proof that he is coming back at all.
