Paul Pierce scored a career-high one point and Dwyane Wade posted a career-high field goals made to field goals attempted ratio of 6/17 as the pride and glory of the Boston Celtics defeated the star-studded Miami Heat earlier this afternoon.
Of course, I hope all of you see the irony in the first line of the post. The Celtics beat the Heat to go up 3-0 against Miami for the season series, and you have to give the bulk of the credit to the diminutive, scintillating floor general of the Celtics, Rajon Rondo, for his 11 point, 10 assist, 10 rebound performance while Truth — Paul Pierce — failed to show up.
Chris Bosh and LeBron James chipped in with 24 and 22, respectively. However, James and Wade combined for ten turnovers (4 from LeBron; 6 from Wade) and those stats, along with “Big Baby” Glen Davis scoring 16 points, allowed for the Celtics to nip the Heat 85-82.
But this is the regular season, and the regular season means jack squat when the playoffs roll around. While the Celtics are 3-0 against Miami, the playoffs could turn that stat into mush. Though I doubt it.
In other news, the Orlando Magic beat the purple and yellow off of the Lakers in the following game. It was a good day to say the least.
