Nice call Jeff Van Gundy.  The Celtics dominated the Heat again 112-107 behind a huge performance from Ray Allen. The score doesn't reflect what happened in this game. This was similar to their first meeting in that the Celtics dominated but made some mental errors that let the Heat back in the game. It was also similar in that Dwayne Wade was terrible again going just 2-12 from the field with 8 points. In fact, Lebron and Wade combined for 0-10 from three point land. This is without the best defensive starting center in the league in Perk.

Ray Allen was amazing tonight, going 7-9 from beyond the arc. This guy doesn't seem to age and I feel like he could hit corner threes till he's 70. Rondo was outstanding as always with 16 dimes and 8 points. What more can you really say other than he is awesome at life.  Garnett and Pierce were solid as well with 25 and 16 points respectively.

Lebron put up some good numbers with 35 points 10 rebounds, and 9 assists but I feel like he never really dominated the game. Chris Bosh is scared. He reminds me of Rashard Lewis last year in the Eastern Conference Finals.  This isn't Toronto anymore Bosh.  One guy that did impress me on the Heat was Udonis Haslem. I told my friend tonight that I haven't seen Haslem miss an open 15 foot jumper in his career and he didn't fail me tonight going 9-10 from the field. Give me a team of Haslem's over Chris Bosh's any day.

There was a Nate Robinson sighting tonight. He played a huge part in staving off a Heat come back. Ever since I saw this guy win us Game 6 of last year's Magic series I've given him the benefit of the doubt and I'm confident he will continue to get better as the year goes on. The guy is talented and it is just a matter of time before he starts hitting his shots.

The Celtics are a better team than the Heat. Basketball is a 5 on 5 game not 1 on 1. I'm not scared of the Heat. At the same time, the Celtics made some mental errors tonight that they can't afford. Don't go for the dunk Ray! The plays of the game were the Rondo dunk and Glen Davis put back. Great win for the Celtics. This team is without a doubt better than last years squad.

    No Celtic fan should ever be scared of the Heat as it is.

    Great win and we are only getting better... everyone who stepped on the court contributed...TEAM GREEN...BANNER 18

    Seems like you beat the Heat the same way you beat the Cavs. Out play them until the inevitable LeBron late game scoring drive. Weather that until he gives up, starts missing shots, or his teammates get sick of it and quit on him. Win the game.

    Also yes Z looks like Barracka in the pic.

    Still weird to see Shaq in a C's jersey. But weird in a good way.

    Another big win for the C's.

    There was some home cooking going on... thats for sure. Ray Ray's dunk at the end was a foul or at least a goaltend... some BS calls in that one. Robinsons Tech? Yet LBJ is yelling at ref's and its cool... he is LBJ!

    Rondo is just an amazing basketball player! And I agree about Ray Allen. He just doesn't seem to age.

    The double standards for the techs were blatant last night.

    Heat should've signed Shaq. I guess they didn't realize Joel Anthony is like 6'7, 195 lol.

    On the money Karl! If the Big Shamrock can stay healthy enough until Perk comes back we will be in good shape and stay out of the hospital ward

    Just came to my mind... Shaq played with Kobe, Penny Hardaway, DWade, James, Garnett, Pierce, Allen, Nash, Malone, Payton... Damn.
