Ray Ray!!!!!

Check out Noahs reaction to Rays game winner.

Ray's three with 2 seconds left gives the Celtics a 118-115 win over the Bulls. It was the final shot in a magnificent duel between Ray (30 pts, 28 in the 2nd half) and Ben Gordon (42 pts, 6-11 3FG).

Ray's three pointer with 25 seconds gave the Celtics a 115-113 lead, but a Gordon jumper tied it back up with :12 left.

What a ballsy effort/performance by the kids. Rajon Rondo (19 pts, 16 assists, 12 reb, 5 stls), Kendrick Perkins (16 pts, 12 reb, 2 blks and Big Baby Davis (26 pts, 9 reb) all played great games.

The Bulls blocked 14 shots and it seemed like 12 of those were on Paul Pierce. The Truth (18 pts, 8-19 FG, 8 reb) did not play well tonight. In the postgame presser, Doc said it appears as if Paul is looking for a double team that isn't coming and that is making him tentative.

The Celtics just can't shake the injury bug. Leon Powe sprained his left knee (it was the right knee that kept him out for several weeks) in the first half and did not return in the 2nd half. He went to the hospital for an MRI. Rondo took a nasty fall in the first half and sprained his ankle.

Perk and Noah (13 pts, 8 reb) mixed it up several times tonight. Noah caught a T for yapping at Perk in the 3rd quarter. It's clear to me Noah is trying to make his bones as a "tough guy" in this series.

  • Nate H.

    thank… god…. im so happy

  • Finally. That was some hell of a game!

  • I love how every time the Bulls scored 2 baskets in a row little orphan Collins wet himself and every time the Celtics made a run he said not word one.

  • Josh

    I’m in my early 30’s and almost had a heart attack… I hope Danny wasn’t watching…

    Look at all the Celtic HATERS. Not even fans of the opposing team, just hating the Celtics.

  • Mooz

  • clumsy

    Jesus saved us!!!

  • Sal

    All the Ray-haters, GTFO.

  • I bleed green in L.A.

    Collins had a mini-orgasm everytime Gordon his a shot. Ray, Rondo and KG need to kick Paul in the butt to wake him up. PAUL, its the playoffs, we kind of need you right now.

    Thank good that was a hell of a game. Celtics need to step it up on defense if we want to win in chicago.

    First, we must acknowledge that Chicago is an excellent team, destined to be great soon… probably by next year (if not already). If it’s not Rose, it’s Gordon. They hit some tough, tough shots today, and it looks like they can keep doing it. Plus their D is superb, no question about it.
    Second, things do not look good for the Cs this year.
    – Without Rondo, they’re hopeless. So if he gets injured, it’ll be total lights out. This game was in hand till he got injured. Luckily he fought it off. Rondo right now is more valuable to this team than anybody else. He is their sine qua non.
    – We definitely will not go far in these playoffs is we get one half with NEITHER Paul nor Ray, and the other half with only one of them (as was the case in both games so far). We are going to need BOTH Paul and Ray to show up to every game, every quarter. It’s the playoffs. If you’re not gonna bring it now, just go home and quit wasting our time. Paul sucked, the whole game. No energy. Nothing. Ray was invisible in the first half. Perk, Baby… no problem.
    – I sure hope that last play was not the one called in the huddle. Because it was ridiculous… when you need a 2 for the lead, you don’t shoot a low percentage 3 under pressure. I can only assume that it was a busted play, and Ray was the 3rd, 4th or 5th option.
    – That’s two games now where Marbury has been useless. He tried a bit harder today, had a little more energy, but still came up with almost nothing. We have no backup PG. The entire fate of this team now rests on Rondo’s shoulders.
    We were lucky to squeeze this one out, against a very good team playing inspired ball. Nevertheless, we may not get out of the first round. We may not get out of the 2nd round, if we get there. Hard to imagine us getting out of the ECF. Really, really hard, the way these 2 games have gone.
    Still… anything’s possible. (Good to see KG in non-zombie mode.)

    Great shooters always bounce back!!!!! Glen Davis the work on your jumper has paid off big time!! Rondo is the man!!
