Order is restored to the universe.

The Celtics have returned to the spot they occupied for much of the time between 1957 to 1986, crushing the Los Angeles Lakers 131-92. The game was never even close after the first quarter as the Celtics led by 23 at the half. The Lakers pretty much gave up halfway through the third quarter, as Ray Allen took a completely uncontested three. None of the Lakers even bothered to try to stick a hand in his face.

The Celtics played a total game - offense, defense, hitting the boards, hustle. The Lakers were totally outmanned. The Big Three lived up to the example of their predecessors; Allen with 26 points, including 7 of 9 threes; MVP Paul Pierce with 17 points and 10 assists and KG added 26 points and 14 boards.

I feel especially happy for Pierce. This his 10th year with the Celtics and there were a lot of bad years mixed in there. He stayed with the team and really joined the pantheon of Celtics legends tonight.

Well, it's late, although I think it will take a while to fall asleep. The duck boats will be rolling later this week!
