Burning Down The House

New, comments

The Big 3 all came out strong and set the tone early.  They held the Heat to 10 first quarter points and maintained a lead hovering around the 20's all game long.  However, the story of the night was Eddie House and his flurry of 3 pointers.

Boston has now won 6 in a row headed into their matchup with the Magic tomorrow.

Update: Here are few belated post-game bullets.

  • Fast start, but the 3rd quarter was ugly.  If it wasn't for Eddie and Ray shooting thier minds out (and to be fair, they were left wide open) then this might have been closer than it was.
  • I love Paul's little baby-jump-hook he used when posting up smaller players.  For a guy that already has a deep bag of tricks, this is just one more thing to keep defenders on their heels.
  • Too many turnovers (21) again.  Sometimes it is because they are being unselfish (too many extra passes) and sometimes it is because they are being cute (fancy or forced passes), but a lot of times it is just pure sloppiness.  Not a good trend.
  • I missed seeing Dwyane Wade play at full speed last year.  He's just a great, great player.  If he gets a decent team around him again, watch out league.
