Bench Bombs

(8:42 to play) The bench is pulling away from the Lakers. Old Man Sam added a big hoop and James Posey just popped a 3 to give the Celtics an 86-78 lead. The crowd is jamming to Rock and Roll Part II and there is NO sign of Jack Nicholson so far, despite lots of “You Can’t Handle The Truth!” clips on CelticVision.

The Garden is rocking and I’ve got to get rolling. I’ll post some final thoughts after the game (and our post game show). Enjoy the finish!

UPDATE: The Celtics won 98-88 on the strength of an inspiration performance by Paul Pierce. His incredible return just moments after being carried off the court will certainly earn him a place in Celtic lore. The knee is strained, he says, and he’ll see how he feels at practice tomorrow. I wouldn’t count on Pierce to let it get in his way.
