So that's how Orlando felt after Game 5.
The Celtics scored a whopping 29 second half points. Their last points of the game were scored by Rajon Rondo at the 3:46 mark. Orlando erased a 10 point Celtics lead halfway through the 3rd quarter to force a game 7 Sunday night.
I honestly thought this thing was over when Paul Pierce scored 6 straight for the C's to retake the lead. But then there were turnovers, fouls, two missed free-throws by Pierce, more missed shots for Ray… and no more points.
Ray Allen's line: 2-11, 0-7 from 3, 5 points. Jeez.
I'm just too frustrated by this game. It hit me like a Manny Pacquiao left hook. I never saw it coming until the very end, and now I'm floored. Never should have come to this. The Celtics squandered a ton of opportunities with careless turnovers.
I'm done for tonight. I need a drink. Everyone have fun with the wild, emotional overreactions in the comments. Go nuts with them. Get them out of your system. Let's regroup and look at this rationally tomorrow.
