* For what its worth – LeBron had the “eye of the tiger” early

* Yes, I know Pierce hit a big shot
* Heat, other than James, was 18-50 from field

* Surprised they left James out there for 45 minutes
* Celtics 1-14 from three point land
* Pierce’s shooting percentage by series: Atlanta 42.9% (terrible) / Sixers 40.2% (God awful) / Miami 33.9% (fraud)

Interesting comment from Paul Pierce re-told by Jeff Van Gundy – “We want to make this a bar fight” – isn’t that where he got stabbed?
Daniel Nava is hitting .306.
Tim Thomas flopping away from the game next year – he is reminding me of Dave Cowens in many ways – remember the big red head’s sabbatical and driving a cab?
