UPDATED UPDATE: The Sixers beat the Cavs in OT.
UPDATE: Apparently, I published this blog too soon. The Cavs/Sixers game is tied and headed to OT.
The Bulls. Yup – Chicago choked hard against Toronto while Philly beat a Cleveland team that dressed Brad Daugherty, Craig Ehlo and Larry Nance. Looks like I have to rewrite the Celtics/Sixers playoff preview I wrote today for Dimemag.com.
I believe the Bulls will be a tougher out for the Celtics. This series could go 5.
For a meaningless game, the final 5 minutes of this 4th quarter was very exciting. Eddie House scored 17 of his 20 points in the final quarter to lead the Celtics back from an 8-pt deficit. Eddie finished 6-9 3FG and beat Danny Ainge’s team record for three-point field goal percentage for a season.
Leon Powe (18 pts, 13 reb) is back. As you can tell by the above photo, Ray and Paul sat this one out. Rondo and Perk played a total of 20 minutes.
