Survive and advance
From what I could see following on the gamecast and by word of mouth, this wasn’t one of the prettier Game 7 victories in Celtics history, but they found a way. They found a way via a great run at the end of the first half. They won with Eddie House banging out one clutch three after another. They won with KG again in street clothes. They won with grit, pure and simple. They won with the Bulls finally proving to be human in crunch time. What a series. This is why you fight for homecourt.
Now they just have to contain Superman, A K A Dwight Howard in the next round.
As for the Red Sox, a split at the Trop would be pretty sweet the way this four-game series started.
