    The Cavaliers (48-13) lead Boston (49-14) in winning percentage .787 to .778, though the Celtics took the lead in the head-to-head tiebreaker, 2-1, with an April 12 game in Cleveland remaining.

    Boston Dominated this game. If PP is not the best player in the league, i dont know who is. He completely shut down King James and took over on the O side of the ball.

    THE REFS DID EVERYTHING IN THEIR POWER!

    The Celts kicked serious ass today. No KG...Baby steps up playing good and then hes ejected...Leon dominates with Perk and Moore doing additional damage.

    The big boys were on fire.

    I know one thing the NBA better do something about the officiating. It really looked like they were on the take. The Celtics still prevalent, got to love it. their defense looked a lot better tonight still need KG back big time though.

    PP was unreal last night. Doc said KG will be back next week but I think they've done better than expected without him. It'll be great to have him fresh for the playoffs.

    Whenever there is a tight game, it seems Paul Pierce uses his will to score. He's not that fast (Bird) but goes to the hoop and he's golden. That quick turnaround shot had me cringing, but.............nothing but net.
    That block by Powe was a thing of beauty. Then scores on the other end.

    IF you're Cleveland, how do you feel after this game? Granted the game was in Boston, and the C's still have a formidable team without KG, but don't you have to win this game if you're the Cavs? It's games like these, and the one the Cavs lost to LA in Cleveland, that lead me to believe that the Cavs aren't good enough to win it all. Lebron can be contained in a playoff type game, by forcing him to play half court, and denying him the lane as much as possible. Lebron can't shoot with the purity that Kobe can, and until then, his team will need to be perfect to win the championship over the C's, and Lakers.

    Last night's win is what Championship teams do. Minus the Big Ticket, they flashed a giant FU at the Cavs, and ran them over.
