Absolutely amazing.

The Celtics just took game 4 from the LA Lakers 97-91, but that's only a small part of the story. The real story is The Comeback. The Celtics were down by as much as 24, down by 20 in the third quarter and beat the Lakers on their home floor.

Everyone contributed to this. Pierce had 20. Ray Allen had a couple of brilliant baskets down the stretch. KG had 16 and 11 boards. James Posey was huge off the bench with 18 points and Eddie House played well also.

Most importantly, everyone played defense in the second half. The Lakers only scored 33 points after scoring 58 in the first half.

Does anyone even remember all the trouble the Celtics had winning on the road against Atlanta and the Cavs?

I never say anything is impossible after the 2004 ALCS, but being up 3-1 with two games left at the Gahden makes me feel pretty good about the Celtics chances.

Banner number 17 would be a pretty nice Father's Day present, wouldn't it?
