The win against Miami was not an easy one, with the outcome only decided in the closing minutes of the game.
This seems to have been the pattern of the past few games, with the Cs coming through at crunch time. Once again, Paul Pierce didn't have to play Superman and carry the team on his back.
Kevin Garnett was the dragon slayer this particular game, as this was definitely his finest game to date this season. Hopefully, it's a sign that he's turned the corner, and that his confidence, along with a deadly mid-range jumper, is finally back in form, to go with his defensive ability.
Fortunately, our Cs atrocious three point shooting was only exceeded by Miami's at least as atrocious shooting from beyond the arc, which balanced that out.
Perkins played a fantastic game, and has been getting progressively better. There is one area in which he and Rondo will have some serious improving to do. Both of them should have to stay behind after a game where they've missed 1/2 their free throws and have to shoot free throws until at least one of them hits ten in a row: of course, that means that they could be up all night on occasion, but I guarantee their game free throws will dramatically improve after a few sessions like that.
