Ray Allen Hits Game Winning Shot in 2nd OT vs. Bobcats (MONEY!)

I had a hoops game last night so I wasn't able to catch most of the Celtics game against the BobKittens but I did make it home in time to catch the 1st and 2nd OT. I'm not sure why the hell the game was so close but I will take that win.  You hate close games against inferior teams but it happens over the course of an 82 game season. 

The Bobcats are actually a much improved team under Larry Brown this season. I wasn't sure he would be able to handle the lack of talent and young players on this team but he has done a nice job. Watch out for these guys in the next few years if they can pick up some more talent in the draft or through trades and free agency. They are no longer a joke as they were just last season.  They can compete with almost anyone as they have proved against the Celtics a few times this year. 

Ray Allen has been killing it softly over the past 2 months.  He is ON FIRE!  We needed someone to step up while Garnett has been gone and Ray has been that dude. Pierce has continued to play strong (as always) and has been carrying the team on his back. He was the one who set up Allen for the three in the corner by driving to the hoop and drawing the defense.  That's how you do it!

I would love it if Pierce didn't have to exert so much energy just to keep the team in these games though. I hope KG recovers quickly for the playoffs so that this is a non-issue. Nice win!
