The Celtics got best player in the world’ed tonight as LeBron James put up 45 points on 19 of 26 shooting and added 15 rebounds for good measure.
The Celtics were never closer than hanging around at any point during the game. The offense was a series of lowlights. Paul Pierce went 4-18, an uncomfortably familiar line for him this series. Kevin Garnett seemed tight and out of rhythm all night and finished 6-14. Ray Allen was only 3-7. Even Rajon Rondo forced passes where angles didn’t exist and slopped the ball around for 7 turnovers.
The Celtics deserved to lose this game and the Heat deserved to win it.
So, we’re headed to game 7 in Miami on Saturday night.
Hope you didn’t have any other plans.
