THIS IS A NIGHT FOR BOSTONIANS!
The Bruins win, the Sox score 17, and the Celtics win one in Cleveland.
The Cavs only lost 6 times at home all season. So this is a truly impressive accomplishment for the C's. Now, LeBron is hurt. But he still scored 24. And I don't remember anyone shedding tears for the Celtics when KG was busted up for last year's playoffs.
Rajon Rondo scored 13 and had 19 assists. Yeah, 19. But the real story of this game was the bench, specifically Rasheed Wallace. He contributed 17 points in his 18 minutes. The bench combined for 27 total points, and all five starters were in double digits.
LeBron is hurt. He's human. And the Celtics can take advantage of it. You never root for injuries, but let's be honest here, when your opponent's best player is dinged up, it's an advantage for you. It'll be interesting to see how James plays in Boston.
There's a lengthy layoff, as Game 3 will be played on Friday night.
Again, what a fantastic night for Boston sports!
