T-Mobile Recap: Obliteration

Never in my wildest dreams did I think tonight's game would be so easy. The Celtics rolled over the Heat 106-77.

Glen Davis (23 points, 7-14 FG, 9-11 FT, 8 rebounds) was spectacular in KG's absence. Ray Allen (25 points, 7-9 3FG) was a long range assassin.

Following a 23-23 1st quarter, the Celtics blew this game open with a 21-0 run in the 2nd quarter. Miami went 8 minutes without a basket.

With a 16 point lead at the half, I was a bit concerned we might see a letdown. Wrong. The Celtics rattled off another huge run, this time it was 18-0. Ray Allen drilled 5 threes and tallied 17 points in the quarter.

There was a 16 minute stretch in the 2nd and 3rd quarters where the Celtics outscored Miami 44-8.

The Celtics out-rebounded the Heat 50-33. They held Miami to 38% shooting. Jermaine O'Neal (2 pts, 1-10 FG) was hideous. Q-Bitch (5 points, 2-7 FG) was MINUS 33. Bahahahaha!!!

Credit to Perk (13 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 blocks) who came out strong and played tenacious defense on O'Neal.

Tommy Heinsohn did a great job of keeping this game in perspective. He said the Heat will likely play with the same urgency in Game 3 that we saw tonight from the Celtics.

More to come…

  • Would have love to have seen the last 7 minutes or so. What does Stern do next suspend KG and Pierce?

  • ssshady35 aka ANGRY TURK

    You think Q will start shit again? WOW great game. This is exactly what they needed, thanks Q!!

  • rodger

    Total bull shit switching to another game thats already on another channel I live in illinois pay for dish network nba leauge pass then the 2nd game of the playoffs comes on tnt and i cant watch it all im pissed off any one know of a replay later i called tnt and complained this is bull crap.

  • Loved the win, hate TNT more than I thought I could hate a network in my life. What the hell was going on switching to the Portland/Phoenix game?? I get that on NBAtv already. That was infuriating. I guess David Stern didn’t want to see Wade get embarrassed? This is even more frustrating than the changing of games last season when the Patriots shut out the Titans. God forbid we get to see the Celtics truly dominate when a virtually meaningless game is already playing on another channel.

  • Glad I am not alone.

  • why did doc only play 11? as college former 12th man(as freshman)it just made me wonder? any one know?

  • Bas Rutten Jr.

    Q-Bitch. Uh, yes! Easily the best nickname Red’s Army has had yet. Simple and to the point, I like it.

  • jared

    Celtics set to Search and Destroy…
    Friggin Awesome.

  • JShuttlesworth

    Anyone else less than enthused with sheeds -12 in a game we won by 29?

  • Ace-One

    Ticket Stub!

  • DRJ

    One, just one, negative sign coming out of this game: Davis managed to talk about himself in the 3rd person at least 5 or 6 times in the post-game interview. Bad sign. But… luckily, KG’s back for next game. Whew 🙂

  • Sal

    Am I the only one still gripping my pillow tonight in fear of a seven-game series? I’m just saying, I feel like I saw this movie two years ago. Boys, beat them in game 3, please, so I can stop being so gunshy.

  • DRJ

    Btw… I believe THE SWITCH HAS BEEN FLIPPED. How can I know after just 2 games? (Well… you can’t ever KNOW know, not till the banner is flying… still…) It’s fair to say, because of their defense. Whether or not Ray or anybody else hits shots will always vary… but their D can be there every game. And they haven’t played this kind of defense since… well, a long time ago. Now they’ve done it for the last 6 quarters.
    Looks like a flipped switch. 2 down, 13 to go.

  • Shawn-cvd

    Who cares…Celtics won. Sheed WILL contribute huge in about half dozen of these games in our march to 18. He wasn’t needed tonight (or even for this series really).

  • Shawn-cvd

    The Heat may have something to say about that. Look for Boston to split in Miami and close this in five. As likely is KG destroying Beasely in game three and C’s sweeping this thing. A seven game series is not happening.
    BTW if you wanna stop feeling gunshy read ANYTHING Dr J posts.

  • Shawn-cvd

    I’m pretty sure you want us to win 16 games.

  • Shawn-cvd

    Loved the craptastic play of Q-Bitch. His drives were just awful as the Boston fans gave him an earful.
    Davis was incredible. He posted what’s arguably the best game of his career. A slight edge has to go to that game winner in Orlando.
    Should Mr Stub continue this inspired play and should the C’s continue their Ubunto revival tour TNT will have to go to replays of “Law and Order” for the last seven minutes of the fourth quarters in NBA Finals games.

  • DRJ

    LOL – yeah, I had 15 in mind from the last game. Lol. Yeah… 16 total would be just right. 🙂

  • DRJ

    Agree. They can’t come back from the beat-down they just took. It’s hard to imagine how anybody could. Cs took the heart right out of that team… even their coach was heard on the sidelines asking an assistant something to the effect of… “is there anything else we can do?” and sounding quite hopeless.

  • Time for a Blockbuster Trade Baby!

    Lets not get tooo excited there buddy! Its just one game. There were moments during the first half when the d was all over the place.
    I think game 3 is key. We got to win it. Put these jokers down and rest up for LBJ.

  • WTF! I live in Russia and pay the NBA money to watch the Celtics. If I wanted to watch some other game being shown on another network.. I WOULD WATCH IT. THE PEOPLE WANTING TO WATCH THAT GAME ALREADY WERE!!

  • dave cowens

    There’s nothing better than watching Ray stroke the nylon. I know that sounds a little kinky, but fans know what I’m talking about. He was on fire.
    The good thing about Sheed getting in foul trouble is that it forces Doc to play the Landlord, and good things tend to happen when Shelden gets minutes.

  • Shawna

    The defense last night was absolutely beautiful. I LOVED this game. I’m with Tommy though…I do believe Miami is going to come out with a sense of urgency. Game 3 is absolutely key. I firmly believe we can do this though, I know this is like deja vu of 2008 but not really. I’m thinking they can take Miami in 5 though I’d love a sweep.

  • Awesome game. Definitely gonna revel in it for a day.
    Then Tommy nailed it.. it’s just 2-0 now. But I want to enjoy the b-smack for a while first. That was just awesome.

  • mikey

    when Celtics win the title this year, they will be up about 100 in the 4th against the Lakers, and they will cut the game off to give a preview of the 2010-11 Cavalier season. nba you hate the Celtics too much, people notice these things.
