Phil, you know I love a good comeback. So, thanks to the Celtics, in the spirit of 2002, came back from a 24-point deficit to mount "the greatest comeback in NBA playoff history" to win and go up 3-1 in the series. Eddie House straight housin'.
The third quarter, in case you turned it off early, featured a 21-3 run from the Celtics in which they silenced the Laker crowd and took the game over. After the third quarter, Phil Jackson said in a courtside interview, "Momentum's a strange girl." Phil, regarded as one of the greatest coaches in NBA history has always been applauded for his timely moves and ability to quell a comeback and kill opponents' momentum. Phil had no answer tonight...again.
Yeah, we love the comeback around here. Love it. Something nice about watching Jack Nicholson swallowing heart medicine like Tic Tacs as the Celtics ram it down Kobe's gully. David Cook, you can eat it. Vujacic, here's a hanky. You ain't been in the league long enough to get that call, homie.
