The Celtics could have come out stronger.
They sure as hell could have finished better.
But Dwyane Wade had a transcendent game. That whole looking at his hand thing after nailing those threes is going to be on his permanent highlight real. He took the game over in a way that only a few guys ever could and he did what everyone thought he would do… win Miami at least one playoff game.
He's done that. Congrats on getting out of your system, Dwyane
On Tuesday, Quentin Richardson will still think he's on fire, and Beasley will climb right back into his shell in front of a hostile crowd triple the size that he's used to (aside: really Miami fans? Christ you suck.), and you'll go reaching for your magic pixie dust again.
But it's all gone. We don't buy that shit in Boston.
At least you got to put on one last big performance in Miami before running out of town.
