ďOH, LEBRON PASSED! HE SHRINKS FROM THE MOMENT!Ē

ďWADE COULDNíT HIT THE BIGGEST SHOT WHEN HE NEEDED TO!Ē

OK, moving back to the real world, where fairytales arenít spun on the dreams of angels and people are taking it one game at a time giving 110 percent, thereís something thatís going to be lost in the incessant nonsense you will be hearing all day tomorrow.

Boston won that game. Miami didnít lose it. Boston won it. It was Boston that came out and smacked the Heat in the mouth out of the gate, taking the life out of them in the first half, and pounding the shovel on their head. It was the Celtics who responded to a second-half collapse and rallied to force overtime, then made the plays to win.

And most importantly? It was Boston who triple-teamed the best player on the planet and made him pass, and the Celtics who got a hand up in Dwyane WadeĎs face to keep him out of the lane . Boston committed three defenders to James and attacked his angles. James had Pietrus going to his left. But the Celtics have always played James so well to that side of the floor, he opted to go middle. And thatís when two more defenders jumped him. The result was a bad pass to Udonis Haslem and a contested fadeaway from UD resulting in overtime.

There, the Celtics ran the right coverage at Wade. Wade was going to shoot. That was always clear. But instead of allowing him inside, where heís a dangerous scorer, they did enough to work him into a 3-pointer. Wade is 2-of-7 from three in this series, and 28.7 percent from three in the playoffs. Thatís defense. Forcing your opponent to take an uncomfortable shot from a place they canít hit.

Rajon Rondo attacked. The officials were involved. Kevin Garnett was big. But the reason Boston is headed back to Miami with a whole new series and all the momentum?

Bostonís defense stepped up. It wasnít the Heat failing. It was Boston playing better. Miami wasnít worse.

Boston was better.
Celtics took a close one and Bosh is reported to come back for game 5. Will he have an impact?

Huge win for OKC in game 5. Hope they can close the series out in game 6.

Boston's got a great chance to close it out in Boston, really hope this doesn't have to go back to Miami but man this gives me some serious relief knowing they can beat Miami at home in the Playoffs.

Celtics with a big win over Heat. Them and OKC just need 1 more W.

I really want to see Durant get a ring. Easily one of my favorite players in the league.

He is by far my favorite player. Such a chilled guy and just a killer on the court.

Lebron went off on the Celtics big time. Game 7 back in Miami. Really hoping they pull it off so we can see Lebron and Durant go at it.
