Rajon has the nerve to hit D-Wade’s hand with his face
The Good – Rajon Rondo had a game for the ages as he scored a career best 44 points and played an iron man 53 minutes. He wasn’t just showing off his driving skills, as a lot of his points were long 2′s or 3′s. Rondo definitely played with a chip on his shoulder that should continue into Game 3.
The Bad – The refs were again absolutely horrible to the Celtics. 3 players for the Celtics fouled out, whereas no starter for the Heat had more than 3 fouls. Some of the calls down the stretch were clearly fouls against the Heat, but the refs decided to swallow their whistles while the Heat were on defense. In overtime Rondo was clearly hit in the head on a drive by Dwayne Wade on a layup attempt, but the refs decided it was a clean hit to the head. On the other side, D-Wade kicked KG to create separation for a layup, but instead of calling an offensive foul, the refs gave KG the foul for getting kicked. The argument that the Celtics shouldn’t have gotten calls because they settled for jumpers doesn’t apply to this game as the Celtics were driving the hole the whole game.
The Encouraging – The Heat have to come to the Garden and play in an environment where they shouldn’t get all the calls. Home-court has been nice to the Celtics this post-season as they are 6-1. Pierce should also play out of his mind as he couldn’t be happy with the way this game ended for him as he was fouled out in the 4th.
The Celtics will come out strong in Game 3, I guarantee it. They know that Game 3 is a must win for them, and I know they will play with a purpose. Hopefully the refs let them.
