Heat Wave Comes Over the Celtics
On October 30, 2012 the Boston Celtics season started with a game against the Miami Heat and Celtics former player Ray Allen. Boston knew this would be a tough game facing Ray Allen and emotions would boil over. The Celtics put up a fight but it just wasn’t enough this game.
The game was not as close as the Celtics would have hoped. The end of the first quarter was 31-25 Heat. The Celtics clearly were not prepared for this game and it didn’t get any better for Boston fans watching. By halftime Miami had taken a 61-54 lead and the Celtics still were fighting the emotions of Ray Allen leaving. The Heat soon got a 12-3 run and held that comfortable position. Things didn’t brighten up for the Celtics and at the buzzer the Heat rejoiced with a 120-107 win.
The Heat were led by Dwayne Wade, with 29 points, and Paul Pierce scored 23 points for the Celtics. As a team the Celtics got a total of 48 rebounds and the Heat got a total of 41 rebounds. Players like Rajon Rondo came through with 20 points and 13 assists in an attempt to help the Celtics. LeBron James, a favorite for the Heat, pitched in with 26 points and 10 rebounds.
The Celtics now have a 0-1 record but hope to redeem themselves soon. The Celtics next game is on Saturday, November 2 against the Bucks. They also have over two months to prepare for their rematch against the Miami on January 27. Will the Celtics be ready for their next game? Will they be able to take on the Heat again? Do we have faith in our team this season?
