[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Going Back to Boston 1-1 : In their last two meetings the Cs have lost by an average of 17... yes I think the Cs played just about their best game... I love reading how the refs this, the shooting that, blah blah balh..... if the Heat played defense to the end of the game it would have easily been a 20 point win, just like last time they played......... the Cs supposed advantage were completely neutralized by an egomaniac at the point and a non-factor at the 5.... the Heat defense is better than the Cs defense.... sorry... Heat in 7 The main thing that most people here cannot even attempt to comprehend is that the Cs are not the Harlem Globetrotters and the opponent is not the Washington Generals. What I mean by that is that from one team to the next it is not a bunch of nameless faceless guys that should never pose a problem to the Cs. Somehow whenever things go poorly it is something the Cs have done and it could not possibly be something the opponent did, so Pierce's complete inability to participate has to be something Pierce or the refs did - not the Heat, if KG is a complete non-factor it is the refs or KG having a bad day - not something the HEat did. Rondo was supposed to be the key to the series and of course it was the refs blah blah blah.... it is never something external that may have caused the problems facing the team - Rondo tried to live up to the headlines and embarrassed himself off the floor but it must have been the refs or a bad day, it cannot possibly be that the other team actually has players that have names and faces and they are ummm... drum roll please..... better - at least today! So people that had a warm and fuzzy and a woody by beating the Knicks 5 straight times 3 of which were without 2 of their 3 best players somehow means the Cs are playing better and that the Heat should pose no problem. Guess what, the Heat are not the Knicks, there is no script, it is not the refs fault. I remember reading over and over again how they are playing better now and they will sweep the Heat and that Rondo is back to normal blah blah blah...... I seem to recall recently that the Cs are focussed now so that will mean destruction of the Heat because of course the Washington Generals, um I mean the Miami Heat are not focussed.........

one question. are you saying that the Celtics, with Rondo out of the game with 3 fouls for most of the game, kg scoring 6 pts and not attempting a foul shot..paul pierce being out of rhythmn almost all game and then being ejected in the 3rd, and us shooting something like 29% from the field in the first half, played their best game?? is that wat your trying to feed us?
the Heat played D the whole game, we went on runs, Rondo started pushing the ball and finding open men, Paul started being aggressive, but best of all, WE started playing defense. dont sit here and act like the heat just shut down everything we were trying to do and dominated us. we missed wide open layups, dunks, shots, and ft.
