Recap: Celtics one win away from the NBA Finals

Posted by shawn cassidy on June 5, 2012 at 11:20 PM




Nobody expected this, and in the first quarter when the Celtics fell down by 11. I didn't see a win. Rondo didn't have his best game tonight. But he still made some crucial plays. Rondo had some major mistakes, but in the end his decision making was just good enough. Paul Pierce had an up and down game. But with under a minute to go in the game. Paul hit a three pointer over James, and the Celtics took a 90-86 lead at that point. After that the game became a free throw contest. The Celtics pulled off the win 94-90.


Pieturs hit two big three's in the 4th, and without those. The Celtics lose this game. He won that playoff game I have been talking about. In game four Pietrus won the game with his two big offensive rebounds. But KG was the hero tonight with 26 points, and 11 rebounds. In the post game interview. He lashed out about his age again. And he continues to follow up every great performance this postseason. The Celtics will go home Thursday looking to close out the Heat. The Celtics are too good in my eyes to lose at home. They're too close to their goal.


The duo of Wade,and James scored 57 points, and Bosh who played just 13 minutes added 9 points. Bosh was instant energy, but the Celtics countered that. The Celtics played solid defense all night. The Celtics used the zone in the 4th, and than they switched to man-to-man. It really confused the Heat.

The Celtics looked ready to meltdown  midway through the third quarter. Rajon Rondo had a costly backcourt violation and soon after Brandon Bass got a technical for slamming the ball down after a traveling violation. I thought oh, shit!  The Heat are going to pounce. One more win C's!


I also expect that Rondo will win game six.


  • The Heat won the glass 49-39
  • Celtics won fastbreak points 9-8

You know C'slife that the media will continue to pick the Heat until the final buzzer in game six.

Great job Boston, especially KG! I am not going to sound the funeral bell for the Heat just yet, but Boston is playing out of their minds!

I am going to have heart with these close games. I was screaming at my Buffalo Wild Wings in Dallas/Fort Worth for the Heat to fail! Go Boston!

I loved the way Pierce took over running the offense in the late first and early second quarter, when you could see that Rondo was really struggling to get his head together.

I'll be so surprised if Rondo doesn't go ballistic in game 6.

i think his effort was there the whole game he was just missing his patented floaters and layups, but he made i think his pass of the season for him to pietrus to shift momentum and finally made a few layups, but man pierce so clutch right in lebrons grill, pierce is shooting 61 percent in the clutch in the postseason durants second chris paul third and rondos 4th with 51 percent i know the 2 guys i want with the ball late in games =].

To me, this was one of the best games I've ever seen from Pierce. Rondo had a weird night. He made terrible plays. Truly terrible plays. He couldn't hit anything - that's a concentration problem. But he never stopped trying, and he made a lot of great plays too. But to me, the key was the way Pierce took over running the team when Rondo went into a funk. That was pure heart and smarts on Pierce's part - a true veteran, supporting the team's leader with his knowledge and skills, and his ability to see what needed done.

Beautiful game, Paul. Pierce didn't shoot much better than Rondo, but like Rondo, he tried to do what was best for the team.

I hate frickin' Battier, but can we get him?
