The Boston Celtics are now down 2-0 to the Miami Heat after a 102-91 win by the home team. LeBron James poured in 35 points and seven rebounds and totally not quitting, for those of you who wondered whether he'd quit or not. Associate Dwyane Wade contributed 28 points, while associate Chris Bosh added 17 points and 11 rebounds.
The officiating in this one drew complaints, just as Game 1's did. One late sequence involved Mario Chalmers selling a Kevin Garnett swipe with a tremendous acting job, which was followed up by Doc Rivers earning a tech for protesting the charitable call. While Paul Pierce didn't get thrown out for being a bad friend this time around, Miami shot 14 more free throws than Boston did and definitely got some home cookin'. Ropa vieja, if you please.
Boston gets it's chance at a home court advantage of its own on Saturday night. If Rajon Rondo and company have any interest in making a series of it, they'll need to counter Miami's hot streaks and fast breaks.
