Parker put up more points but Rondo had more assists and the Celtics pulled out a close, low scoring game with one of the league's elite.
- Great to see KG out there in limited minutes. He was rusty at first, but got his groove going in the 2nd half and that's all we needed from him.
- Is Duncan hurt or sore or did the Spurs just go with Parker so often that Duncan was take out of the offense?
- Add Ginobili and it is a different game. Then again, add a healthy, full-time KG and that changes things a lot too.
- Another quiet but rock solid game by Perkins. Nice buckets within the flow of the offense and some excellent defense all night.
- Ho hum, another 19 point game by Ray Allen. He makes it look so effortless but you know how much work he puts into what he does. Just beautiful to watch.
- What a player Parker is. Just scored almost at will tonight. That is until the game was on the line and he was at the line.
- Maybe Rondo and Parker don't like to be compared to each other, but I see a lot of similarities between the two. I tend to think that Rondo is a better passer while Parker is a better pure shooter, but in general they are quite similar.
