First things first. The official soundtrack to this post.
I almost checked in to bed last night at halftime. The Celts looked sluggish and demoralized. I figured they’d mail it in the second half and we’d be all tied up heading into Sunday’s Game 5 match up.
But for some reason I couldn’t turn it off, and they kept inching closer to erasing the Lakers’ 24-point lead.
Props to Paul Pierce for completely shutting Kobe Bryant down. Dan Wetzel wrote a great piece about how Pierce told Doc Rivers that he wanted to be assigned to Kobe at halftime, and how that sparked the team’s comeback. Word.
Great game. I’m glad I stayed up for it.
