NBA Playoffs 2012, Celtics Vs. Heat: Blogger Reaction To Game Four

The Boston Celtics knotted up the series at two games apiece against the favored Miami Heat with a 93-91 victory in Game Four of the Eastern Conference Finals on Sunday night.

After blowing an 18-point lead, Boston found a way to win mostly behind the brilliance of Rajon Rondo, and have now essentially made it a best-of-three.

Over at Celticsblog.com, the following was written and sums up Sunday night beautifully.

That was Game 4 in a nutshell -- the Heat fought all the way back from a 16-point deficit in the second half to force overtime at the TD Garden and give themselves a shot at a 3-1 series lead, but their comeback effort fell flat in the extra session. There were three big reasons: LeBron James fouled out with 1:51 left in the game, leaving the Heat predictably one-dimensional; Dwyane Wade (the aforementioned one dimension) passed up a wide-open Mario Chalmers for the game winner; and Chris Bosh, the man coach Erik Spoelstra has repeatedly lauded as the team's most important player, still hasn't donned his No. 1 Heat jersey in this series. For the moment, the three kings look like jesters.

After taking care of business at home, the Celtics have new life and a renewed energy. It'll be very interesting to see if the Heat can rise up and match their will in Game Five.
