Celts Advance With Win Over Heat

The boys in green got the job done tonight with a solid win at the Garden to make a date with LeBron in the second round of the playoffs. Leading by 8 after a quarter they never really looked back and managed a reasonably comfortable 10 point win over the Heat. Rondo looked good with 16 and 12, just 2 boards shy of a triple-double on the night, while Pierce, Garnett and Ray Allen all scored in double figures as well.
LeBron, however, almost certainly will not be going down in 5 games like the Heat did. The Celts need to take the next few days to get mentally prepared for what is gonna be a much tougher series than the one they just got out of. Still, this is a series that they are capable of winning. They have beaten the Cavs before this year, so a series win, especially if they can steal game 1 or 2 at the Quick, is not out of the question, especially if they can keep up the form that they showed against Miami.

To get you all in the mood for more playoff Celtics basketball I give you the one, the only...Tommy Heinsohn!
