53 minutes were played in last nights game with Miami and Boston. Rajon Rondo played all of them...Kevin Garnett played 45..Ray Allen and Paul Pierce played 43...LeBron played 48 minutes...D.Wade played 44...im just tired thinking about this.
Pick it up in the closing seconds of the 4th quarter. Ray Allen tied the game at 99 with 34 seconds to go in the game. Next possesion for the Heat, LeBron missed a lay up got the offensive rebound and then, it was that time again. The LAST SECOND SHOT. LeBron gets the ball back at the top of the key with Rondo guarding him; dribble...dribble...dribble...pull up from the right elbow...and CLANK!!! OVERTIME
From there on, you can call it the D.Wade show. He scored 8 of 23 points in OT. Including a 3 point play where he was fouled by Garnett and while Wade was on the ground and proceeding to stand up the two ballers from Chi-Town starred each other down. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Mtn-sT5VBM
Rondo scored all 12 of Boston's points in the overtime period. He finished with 44 points, 10 assists, and 8 rebounds in the game, One of the most unbelievalble performances ive seen by a point guard or anybody period in the playoffs. The only thing is, they lost. In the postgame conference Rondo said, "We lost, simple as that."
This was Miami's fifth straight game in which they outscored its opponent by double digits in the 3rd quarter. In each of the previous 4 games, Miami never trailed in the final period. Miami was down by 15 in the1st half and by as many as 11 in the 3rd quarter, before a pair of 3 pointers by James started a comeback. Wade made consecutive jumpers midway through the 3rd to shake off a slow start to his night. Moments later, Wade set up Haslem for a 3 point play with 2:55 left that gave Miami its first lead, 73-71, since the opening minutes. Game 3 is in Boston Friday at 8:30 on ESPN.
