Today I'm going over the second meeting between the Celtics and Heat. In this game Ray Allen went off for 7 3's and 35 points in this contest. Rondo dished 16 assists with only 3 turnovers. This game was a total team effort. KG had a solid 13 rebound 16 point effort,and Paul added 25 points. Shaq would play only 21 minutes,and really was not the biggest factor. Shaq played only 21 minutes mainly from foul trouble,and he also returned to action after a five game departure. The Celtics lost the battle of the boards by two,and a key stat for the C's only 10 turnovers. You just don't want to turn the ball over against the Heat. Lebron and Wade want to run,and score easy baskets. Doc used a small rotation in this game. Baby/Daniels/Erden/Nate came off the bench. Baby played a solid game as he did on 2/13/11 against the HEAT. Close to 30 minutes in this game. Not great scoring numbers,but he grabbed 9 boards,and he played solid D.
Haslem was huge in this game missing only once from the field 9/10 for 21 points. I think if he's still out in this series good for Boston. If he play's,and Shaq is out. Well the Celtics may be in trouble. The Heat could use Haslem due to there front court issues. James went off against the Celtics for 35,and Wade struggled 2/12 from the field for 8 points.
The Celtics largest lead 20. In Celtics fashion they lost the big lead,and the Heat came close. The Heat cut the lead to 3 with a little under a minute to go in the game. Lebron tried awful shots down the stretch,and missed badly. Except a open 3 which he hit off the side of the back board. Enjoy the Recap video below.
