It wasn't easy, but the Celtics are now 4 wins away from the Finals. Hail to the Truth (41 pts, 4-6 3FG) who single-handedly lead the Celtics to victory over Cleveland…97-92. Props to PJ Brown for two huge buckets in the final 3 minutes. As the playoffs approached, we were constantly reminded about LeBron's epic performance against the Pistons in last year's Eastern Conference Finals and warned about his ability to take over games and/or a series. I guess the big difference between last year's Pistons and this year's Celtics is Paul Freakin' Pierce. Nice try LeBron….maybe next year you can live up to the hype.
''The ghost of Red just looking over us,'' Pierce said when asked about his free throw with 8 seconds left. ''I think he kind of tapped it in the right direction. It sort of put a smile on my face.''
''Today it was basically get the ball to Paul Pierce and get the hell out of the way,'' Kevin Garnett said.
Here are some great pics from the game:
