House on fire!

As expected of the defending champs, Boston Celtics took game 2 with a 112-94 over 3rd seed Orlando Magic. Eddie House caught on fire and poured in 31 points on 11-14 shooting and making all 4 3-pointers. Rondo added a triple-double, his 3rd triple-double in the playoffs and is tied with Celtics legend Larry Bird on making 3 triple-doubles in the playoffs in one season, with 15 points, 18 assists and 11 rebounds. Dwight Howard had 12 points and 12 rebounds while Rashard Lewis added 17 points and 10 rebounds.

The Orlando Magic never led in Wednesday's game trailing by 15 at halftime and as much as 26 in the second half. The small guys, Rondo and House, stepped up with Paul Pierce playing only 15:42 minutes because of foul trouble.
