Celtics Collapse, Heat In Full Control

Too easy. Way too easy.

It is going to be a long 4 day wait till game 3.  Is this series over?  No.  We still have a chance to get things going at home.  Are the Celtics in a huge hole with few encouraging signs?  You bet.  I'm not slamming on the panic button just yet, but I'm about as discouraged as I can get after 2 games.

Other comments:

  • 60 points from Wade and LeBron.  They are who we thought they were.
  • Jeff Green contributed points early but was abused on defense.
  • Rondo bounced back with a better effort, but it wasn't enough.  That's not a good sign.
  • The Heat athleticism is just mind boggling.  I don't know why the Celtics don't use more pump-fakes to turn them into paratroopers.
  • Every time the Celtics made a run and took a small lead, the Heat went on their own run and knocked us back on our heels.
  • How much was Paul's ankle hurting him?  Only 13 un-Pierce like points and LeBron looked very comfortable no matter who was guarding him.
  • Only 7 shots for Ray Allen?  Another failure in ball distribution.
  • Gotta hand it to the Heat, they are beating us at our own game (defense, execution) and they have youth and athleticism to boot.  Hard to beat that.
  • Is this a changing of the guard?  I sure hope not but it isn't looking good right now.  
  • Here's hoping some home cooking turns things around or it is going to be a loooong summer.
