The Cavs pounded the Celtics on Sunday, crushing them from the start and going on to win it 107-76. I guess the frustration for Boston was manifested in Ray Allen’s tussle with Anderson Varejao in the 3rd quarter. Let’s go to the video:
That one referee was right under the basket so I’m not sure how he missed it. As Brett Pollakoff at FanHouse pointed out, Allen’s elbow should have warranted an ejection. This marks the second point in a week that a body part of Varejao’s was featured here at LBS. Anyone else think it was interesting that Andy was unfazed by the nut shot?
Some people are brushing this game aside as inconsequential. With KG out and nothing at stake for seeding, I could see why people would consider this game meaningless. Still, I think it does prove that the Cavs can dominate the Celtics. With home court on their side and Garnett at less than 100%, I’m confidently going with Cleveland to reach the finals. I’d love to see the Cavs win it all and have LeBron stay in Cleveland for that matter, too. We’ll see how things unfold.
