Words suck so let’s catch up with a few choice highlights from games two and three.
Here, Brandon Bass engages in some reputational counter-programming, not only rotating to cut off a drive but rising up to reject a Spencer Hawes dunk.
One of the great things about Paul Pierce is the audible yelp he emits when dunking, being fouled or pretending to be fouled. Here are the two game three dunks that – alone – raised expectations for banner number 18 across New England.
Including Kevin Garnett, the C’s suddenly find themselves with three centers. Here Rondo finds both of KG’s backups for alley-oops. The first, to Greg Stiemsma, is pretty but the second, to Ryan Hollins, has a nice bit of misdirection and perfect, measured timing from RR.
