Good win for the Celtics. Looks like they are indeed back as a top-notch NBA team.
I'll say this. If Cleveland had another seriously legitimate offensive threat besides LeBron, it could've swung the other way. It reminded me of the Knicks only having Ewing. Yeah, I know the Knicks had some "pretty good" second options, but never an "assassin". Cleveland looked the same to me. In the last two minutes I watched a couple of Cavs pass up the best shot out of uncertainty, and put it back to James.
If a decent team gets a hold of him during free agency next year, look the eff out. This kid is SO for real, a winner.
But, today it's Boston. They clearly have a shot at it all, and should compete with these guys for a few years.
Pierce was awesome. He too, is a winner.
