Parker put up more points but Rondo had more assists and the Celtics pulled out a close, low scoring game with one of the league's elite.

  • Great to see KG out there in limited minutes.  He was rusty at first, but got his groove going in the 2nd half and that's all we needed from him.
  • Is Duncan hurt or sore or did the Spurs just go with Parker so often that Duncan was take out of the offense?
  • Add Ginobili and it is a different game.  Then again, add a healthy, full-time KG and that changes things a lot too.
  • Another quiet but rock solid game by Perkins.  Nice buckets within the flow of the offense and some excellent defense all night.
  • Ho hum, another 19 point game by Ray Allen.  He makes it look so effortless but you know how much work he puts into what he does.  Just beautiful to watch.
  • What a player Parker is.  Just scored almost at will tonight.  That is until the game was on the line and he was at the line.
  • Maybe Rondo and Parker don't like to be compared to each other, but I see a lot of similarities between the two.  I tend to think that Rondo is a better passer while Parker is a better pure shooter, but in general they are quite similar.
