Boom Goes The Dynamite

"Anybody got a BROOM?"

The Celtics are making a habit out of making teams give up.  I think it is time to start giving the Celtics their due respect for their part in that.

LeBron is a deserving two time MVP.  Dwight is a deserving Defensive Player of the Year.  But the Celtics are a legitimate Championship contending team.  Their defense is ridiculous and relentless.  It makes teams feel like they can't breathe.  After a while, teams just stop trying.

I'm revising my pre-series prediction.  Celtics in 3.  "Anybody got a BROOM?"

  • Rondo's dive on the floor steal, get up, layup should be shown to kids at basketball camps for years to come.  That's the definition of a Tommy Point.
  • Big Baby showed more heart than the entire Magic team tonight.
  • I love the balance of scoring.  6 Celtics with double figure scoring and none over 20.  Who ya gonna stop?
  • If anyone locates Rashard Lewis, tell him to just stay home.
  • Stats don't even mean much in a game like this, but Dwight Howard's -29 in plus/minus is pretty eye popping.
  • Ok, one more stat line: Ray Allen had 14 points, 6 assists, and 6 rebounds.  That's a Rondo type line.
Beat LA! Beat LA! Beat LA!
