Boston Celtics Take Commanding lead 3-2

Paul Pierce came back from a miserable performance in the series, helping the Boston Celtics rout the top seed Cleveland Cavaliers, 120-88. The first half was tight until the Celtics went on a run in the third quarter leading by as much as 21 points. Ray Allen carried the Celtics with 25 points, Pierce made his presence felt after struggling in the series had 21 points and 11 rebounds for the C's. Kevin Garnett also made a big impact in the game scoring for 18 points to complete the Big 3 that once capture the NBA Championship in 2008. Rajon Rondo was his usual self finishing with 16 points and 7 dimes while Glen Davis was monster on the post scoring 15 points. The loss was a disappointment for the top seeded Cavs with Lebron James slowing down and the rest of the Cavs struggling. James had only 15 points on 3-of-14 shooting, including that zero field goals in the first half. Antawn Jamison, the player acquired form Washington to help the Cavs, had only 9 points to show. The only bright spot for the Cavs is the performance by the "Big Diesel" Shaquille O'Neal making his presence felt in the paint scoring 21 points on 7-of-11 shooting. Boston Celtics will try to end the series at home on Thursday night.
