First of all, the Celtics are up 2-0. Second of all, the Celtics are up 2-0. Third through tenth of all, the Celtics are up 2-0. That was a pretty shocking collapse and lack of focus in the 4th quarter, but when the other team lets you get up by 24 points in the 4th quarter, you can get away with that. Point being: that was an aberrant stretch and when they got themselves together, they got the game in hand. Fuck Phil, fuck Kobe, and fuck the LA nonchalance in explaining away these two games. Punch em in the mouths in LA, fellas. Aside from that stretch when they stopped paying attention (and they need to stop that), the Celtics dominated. They'll get a few less calls in LA, but if they play their game, they can get at least one in LA.
As far as Leon goes, the only people who are surprised by this performance are people who just started watching the Celtics in the playoffs. At the risk of repeating myself: this was a 20-10 guy in the Pac 10 (both league highs), and he's been doing it in the minutes that he's gotten in the NBA for 2 solid years. Attaboy, Leon. Attaboy, Rondo (16 assists - the most in an NBA Final game since Magic in 91). Attaboy Paul. And attaboy Ray for getting in that asshole's head.
