Ballin: 29-6-7 for LeBron, 15 and 15 for Rajon Rondo, 17 and 14 for KG, four threes for Ray Allen — lots of standard lines in yesterday’s game. So let’s give Udonis Haslem a shoutout for adding 17 rebounds to his 12 points. Cool for him. Still a terrible beard though.
Not so much: Not surprisingly, Paul Pierce fouled out of a big playoff game, his third disqualification in the last five games. More surprisingly, LeBron fouled out with about two minutes left, which is his first foul out since 2008. Best part is both of the sixth fouls came on dubious offensive fouls. Refs are just awesome.
Wrong Way Riegels: Great tip by the Celtics right here. Too bad the points went to the Heat.
Just grab the ball next time. That way we won’t have to endure a boring OT where only six points are scored. Take that suggestion with a grain of salt, but I think it’s pretty smart.
Do not worry: LeBron James on why he hasn’t tweeted recently — “‘My fans, I’m still with them, but I haven’t been on there.” OK, good.
Tough questions: It’s not often that LeBron has to answer questions about fouling out, which is probably why it’s so funny hearing him talk about it.
I gotcha: From an NBA memes standpoint, Rajon Rondo was this weekend’s MVP.
Other things: Chris Bosh might come back for Game 5, hopefully making this face … Congratulations go out to Amar’e Stoudemire, who just got engaged … The Bulls are targeting some names you’ve heard of, which means they probably won’t actually pay enough to get them … Rick Barry is styling …. Kaleb Cannolis is probably going to be the Blazers’ head coach
