How Did the Celtics Go Up 3-2 with that Line-Up?


The Miami Heat are now deemed to be an unstoppable juggernaut by many. Yet the Boston Celtics managed to take a 3-2 lead over them in last year's ECFs, winning game 5 on the enemy's court, no less.

How did they do it?

Answer:

Some clutch shooting from Mickaël Piétrus, a big 3 from P-Squared, and some heads up plays from number 9.

I like to make fun of last year's second unit. But I will admit that in the playoffs,  Piétrus came up big on more than one occasion. I still say the Celtics' bench was pretty weak last season. We'll just have to wait and see who steps up to the plate with the game on the line when the two teams meet again on Tuesday.
