If you needed to see a game to reinforce your positive feelings about the Celtics this was it. In the first half the C's allowed 57 points, and looked creaky. But outscoring the Sixers 62-32 in the second half put a tremendous calm over me. Leon Powe came out of the woodwork, and the offense was clicking better than it had in quite a while. See, not all is shambles without Rondo! We have to remember that San Antonio has been flirting with .500 the last twenty games, and that Phoenix overtook L.A. in the standings only last night. A very good team does not disappear overnight and go away. But sometimes it sleeps a little. Everything was vibing in the second half tonight, but what might be the most uplifting is the constant; the second half D made up for the lousy D of the first half. 89 points when it looked like they were gonna give up at least 100 is a tremendous improvement. At any rate, it was nice to see dominance again.
