Did anyone ever think we were gonna lose that game? Serious question. Thought for sure Pierce was going in but you wanna take it OT? Fine we’ll take it to OT. Doesn’t matter. The moment it was announced Ray Allen was playing I knew it would be easy as pie. Been looking for scoring off the bench and Jesus delivered in spades. Compile that with Rondo being Rondo and getting his 7th playoff triple-double and it wasn’t even an issue that Pierce decided to take the night off. Not that he didn’t deserve it after his game 2 performance.

Bottom line is this team wins with grit and balls. Ray toughing out an injury and the team winning a defensive battle in OT is fucking grit and balls.
