    A great playoff series so far, tied at 2-2 each.

    Looking forward to another good game. Rondo sure has been on fire, now if we can get Pierce and Allen to have a hot night too...

    The thing that worries me most is the front line depth. Powe and Garnett are out for the season, and Pierce and Allen have been playing way too many minutes for several months now.

    True, Pierce looked absolutely exhausted by the end of Sunday's game.
    I truly hope that Rivers no longer has Pierce try to drive inside for a clutch point, it's been ineffectual this entire series as the Bulls just jam the inside lane.

    As well, I hope it's not just me, but Mikey Moore kind of sucks. For that size, the man can't rebound on a consistent basis and produces too many damned fouls...

    Finally, what do people think of the Celtic's chances reaching the Eastern Conference Finals? Personally, if they get there, I just don't think this team has the depth to overcome the Cavaliers...

    Pierce looked about dead in game 2. Could tell the minutes were really adding up. I've been having a blast watching the playoffs tho. My wife has turned into Pierces number one fan. Never before did she act like she liked basketball, but she thinks shes Pierces coach/cheerleader when hes on the floor.
    How about ole Big Baby Davis LOL hes improved dramatically over last year to this year. Good to see him step up to the plate.

    Pierce has almost nothing left. Allen needs to step up more. Rondo has been playing out of his mind (pretty much averaging a triple double this series). Someone on the bench needs to step up.

    Yeah, I like the Celtics too, but this is pretty clearly a knock against Deus. Take it outside if you wanna cat fight.

    Celtics down 4 points after 3 quarters.
    Noah is the next Rodman/Ben Wallace - a scrappy rebounder and defender who drives the other team nuts.

    Just 8 minutes later... Celtics down 11 points.
    Not sure if they have enough fuel in the tank to come back.

    Down 3 now with 5 mins left, Ray Allen just fouled out on a completely bogus call. The Garden is furious at the refs.

    Overtime now. What a wasted opportunity.

    With 1 minute left, Doc inexplicably puts in Marbury. Then Pierce brilliantly set Marbury up for a wide open 3, which he passes up and passes to Rondo for an awkward shot. Then, on the very next possession, Marbury gives Gordon a wide open look which Gordon makes (why was Marbury trying to block his view back out?).

    Only a clutch Pierce play with 10 seconds left ties the game and sends it to overtime.

    Perkins and Rondo are really coming through in OT though. Marbury is still clueless, he just bricked a shot that didn't even hit rim.

    Whew, great comeback win by 2.

    Perkins: 19 rebounds, 7 blocks
    Rondo: Another near triple double and 28 points.
    Pierce: basically carried the entire team, hitting 5 straight clutch shots to win

    Pierce's step back mid range shot is unstoppable...unless they finally decide to double team him. Still you give him those shots one on one and he'll drain them 80% of the time.

    And good lord Tony Allen take a breath of relief. He has such a knack for committing game changing fouls.

    Anyone fear possible retaliation against Rondo for that hack a miller play?
    Did the guy lose a tooth afterall?

    Great game nonetheless...

    Marbury was completely worthless and almost cost us the game multiple times. Why Doc put him on the floor at the end of regulation or in overtime, is mind boggling. It's clear he chokes, is afraid to shoot, and is basically playing tight since he knows he's a career loser and doesn't know how to win.

    How ridiculous were some of the shots in the last stanza of regulation that Pierce, Rondo and Gordon made.

    Great series. Shame KG isn't out there.

    Rondo...carried the team and kept them in it while waiting for Pierce to come alive...again. Thank God they won, and Thank Rondo for playing some great ball again. The refs sure seem a little biased the last 2 games LOL

    I hope next game Allen and Pierce start out better, instead of waiting for the 2nd half to come alive and start playing. Rondo gets my vote for MVP of the entire series thats for sure...
