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
