Boston Celtics fell short!

I couldn't wake up early this morning to watch the game. So i visited the NBA's official site to look at the stat and bocscore of game1 of the Magic-Celtics series. Honestly, even though I am rooting for the Celtics, I expected them to loose game1 by at least 10 points. But, surprisingly, the final score was 95-90 in favor with the Orlando Magic. I was like, "Damn! So close!"

The Orlando Magic used a balanced attack with 5 players in double digit, led by Rashard Lewis with 18 points. Dwight Howard has a double-double with 16 points and 22 rebounds. Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 23 points and Rajon Rondo logging in an almost triple-double, with 14 points and 10 rebounds and 8 assists. Game2 will be on May 6, 2009 8:00pm ET.

What disappointed me was that the home crowd were booing the Celtics. Maybe they couldn't help it seeing the Celtics down with 28 points. But what can they do, they didn't have enough rest going to this game that is only 1 day and had a tiring first round series with 4 overtime games with 7 overtimes all in all. But then again, it's no excuse to lose a game. Let's win game 2 Boston! Let's bounce back!
