The city of Cleveland owes us one giant favor. The Celtics trumped their opening night victory over LeBron's new team, by losing to his old team.
The Celtics frustrated me all night long. Leading by 5 heading into the 4th quarter, I repeatedly said to myself – this is where we put them away. Nope. Never happened. The Cavs outscored Boston 27-14 in the final 12 minutes.
Hey Mike Brown, you should have played JJ Hickson (21 points, 8-11 FG) a lot more during last year's playoffs.
I missed Anthony Parker's shot clock beating time-keeper assisted three pointer that put the Cavs up 89-86 with 2:27 left. But judging by Donny Marshall's reaction in the post game show, it was a bad call.
Last night's clutch time heroes, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, combined for just 4 points in the 4th.
Jermaine O'Neal looks "Mikki Moore bad." His line: 2 points, 2 rebounds and 6 fouls in 12 minutes.
As for the positive, Glen Davis had 14 points, 5 rebounds in 33 minutes. Kevin Garnett (9 points, 15 rebounds) looked explosive (at times) on the boards.
