The short-end version of what took place is simple. The Heat were socking it to the C’s last night, holding a 89-78 lead midway through the fourth quarter. It seemed like a foregone conclusion until the traveling team starting to mount a comeback and finally grabbed a short-lived four point lead with less than a minute remaining. Short-lived because the Heat tied the game @ 99 with 5.5 left on the clock. Celtics ball.
Then what happens?
DWade swipes the ball & dunks. Proverbial nail in the coffin, right?
Obviously wrong, otherwise this post probably would’ve ended there. With .2 left on the clock, Glen “Doc” Rivers draws up the play and behold.
The game goes to OT, the Celts take the momentum and the W on the road. And NBA action continues to be fan-tastic.
