If you happened to wander back into the NBA Playoffs for Game 2 of Boston’s first-round series with Chicago, you picked a good night. An epic battle ensued (a metaphorical battle, anyway; it’s my understanding that no one was killed, wounded or captured), culminating with a mighty three point shot from Ray Allen with two seconds left, giving the Celtics the win and evening the series at one game apiece.
Also, San Antonio got their act together and evened their series with Dallas last night. Tony Parker had 38 points in that game. Isn’t he married to Eva Longoria Parker? Kinda weird that they have the same last name, isn’t it? Eh, he’s French. Incest is probably another day at the office for that guy.
Tonight we’ll get one game closer to that Kobe-LeBron final when Cleveland plays Detroit in their Game 2 (8 PM, TNT) and the Lakers do same with Utah (10:30 PM, TNT). Oh, and I guess Houston and Portland are playing tonight, too. And then I’m probably gonna play with myself. Yeah, you might think that’s sick, but at least if my left hand gets pregnant, I’ll know who the father is.
There’s a video of highlights from that Celtics game after the jump.
