Oh Captain my Captain!
Beat LA! Beat LA! Beat LA!
- The first half was all about the point guards. Rondo set the table, got hurt, and Nate took over.
- Master motivator Doc Rivers: Said all along that Nate would help us win a game in the playoffs. Never doubt him again.
- Paul Pierce's line: 31 points, 13 rebounds, 5 dimes, 2 steals
- Nice, somewhat quiet, 20 points for Ray. (well, those back to back 3's were pretty loud)
- Defense did it. Don't lose sight of that. Defense is why they won this game.
- Doc: "This starting five has never lost a playoff series." Yup.
- Dwight showed up, Vince was great... when they were down 20, nobody else stepped up.
- So, ...we can stop talking about the Bruins right?
- Sheed and Nate helped us win this series. Somewhere Danny Ainge is telling everyone around him "I told you so!"
- Nobody's talking about the refs today. thankgoodnessforthat
- A week of rest is going to do this team a lot of good. Sheed, Rondo, etc. could use the recovery time.
