      Good to see LeBron James take down the Celtics.

      Seeing him laugh in KG’s face was one of my favorite things ever. If only it had been a Knick to do it it would have topped the list.

      That game last night went pretty much as expected. Celtics are scrappy and they always seem to hang around in games about a quarter longer than you’d expect, but ultimately I just don’t think they have can score enough to keep up in this series. Esspecially with Allen a complete non-factor. Miami missed about a dozen wide-open corner 3s last night and still won going away.

      There were a few glimmers of hope for Boston in terms of at least making it a long, interesting series. They were able to get to the rim fairly effectively in the half-court but they were getting blocked and missing shots and not getting foul calls. They should do better finishing inside going forward. Also when they went zone in the 4th quarter they were able to get the ball out of Wade and Lebron’s hands, even if they were conceding wide open 3s. Forcing Chalmers, Battier, etc. to beat you by making 12+ 3s between them may be preferable to the beating they were taking at then hands of Wade and Lebron the rest of the night. Those guys are locked in.

      I think the Heat will pull this one out, but the length of the series is very relevant for the finals. Another 44 minutes for Lebron last night, and it would have 46 if it hadn’t been garbage time at the end. They’re riding him and Wade hard and some off days before the finals would be huge for them.
