Heat wins in OT!

The Miami Heat outlasted the Boston Celtics and won in overtime 115-111 to take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference Finals. Rajon Rondo was a maniac, playing the entire game as well as the overtime and finishing with a stat line of 44 points, 10 assists and 8 rebounds, but it was not enough. After the game there was a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth by the Celtics Danny Ainge about the officiating. It was lopsided, no doubt about it, but that is the game of basketball. The series now shifts to Boston for the next two games and the Heat had better be ready for some ostensibly objective officiating which I am sure will favor the Celtics to tip the scales back, at least initially. It would be nice to sweep, but we at least need to win one up there. The Celtics, no matter how old and how tired, will not go without a fight.
