For any of you out there who thought the Celtics are dead in the water, well, your wrong. And before I say anything else, let me just say that Rajon Rondo, as talented as he is, has the clutch factor. He wants the ball in his hands, and is deadly right now in the playoffs. Shocking thing is, Rondo is apparently a shooter now, hitting long jumpers consistently that he rarely even ATTEMPTED during the regular season, let alone sink. On another note, if Garnett and Pierce can step up and play in the ballpark of their prime, the Celtics are the better team (and that’s no guarantee) . And I’m saying that without even including what Ray Allen can potentially provide. LeBron and Dwayne Wade are outstanding, I know. But the rest of the Heat team is pedestrian, and I wouldn’t be surprised if this series evens out to 2-2, then 3-2 Celtics.
