Besides the crowd being juiced up because it is the Lakers and because of Ray's new record the Celtics got a tremendous life from the bench play of Von Wafer. Just when I was nervous about the depth, Wafer steps up and provides a spark. I always thought of him as a perimeter gunner, but he goes to the rim with a certain anger and is definitely building some confidence as he is quickly becoming a key reserve for the coming weeks. In addition Nate Robinson left the court with a bruised knee and will be re-evaluated at half-time, which means it is Rondo for the long haul at the point with Allen, Wafer and Pierce sharing the 2 and 3 minutes the rest of the way. It's never easy as the lead has gone from 15 down to 7.... make that 5 after the Fisher pull up.
