The Boston Celtics led by the 35-year-old Kevin Garnett are showing the Miami Heat and the rest of the world they can still compete at a very high level. The Celtics were behind in the first quarter of play last night as it looked like the Heat were going to run away with game five, wasn’t enough to shake the Celtics out of a win. Garnett, Pierce and Rondo were able to hold their ground and come from behind to take control of the game and when the final buzzer sounded it was the Celtics who would get the win.
Doc Rivers was able to keep his Celtics team on track, the Celtics would show the world their experience in big games would come through as they won game five on the road in Miami. Paul Pierce would hit a key three-point shot with less than two minutes to go to give the Boston Celtics a lead that was too much for the Heat to over-come. It was the play of Garnett, Rondo and Pierce that kept the Celtics in the game. The Heat looked a little stunned as the fourth quarter started and the Celtics were able to take advantage of them.
Boston and Miami will play game six at the Garden in front of the home town crowd in a must win game if the Heat don’t want to see their season come to an end. The Boston Celtics know the task at hand, many think the Celtics will be able to close out the series with a win on game six.
