    This is the moment of truth...

    The great early part of the season, injuries, the trade, the post-trade slide, resurrection in the first play-off series, and mediocre team offensive and defensive play in the Miami series. It all comes down to tonight. No team has ever come back from a 3-0 hole. As a result, either the real Celtic team shows up tonight, or it is over.

    As Rudy T once said, never underestimate the heart of a champion. This game will tell us what we need to know about the team. Tonight, they will show up.

    The starting five have all struggled in this series, whether it is age, or rust, or effort, or confidence, they have not played like we know they can. Defensive rotations have been slow and not crisp. Offensive passing has been slow and late. We have not been able to score in the paint on a consistant basis, and we have not been able to stop Wade.

    Shaq's presence could be the catylist for the offense. As he draws double teams, others will be open.

    KG will be pumped, as a result, I expect a monster defensive game from him. His offense may also suffer as a result. This will be one of the most personal games he has ever played, and one of the biggest, because the end is very near. KG should be the difference tonight.

    The Celtics are as tough as nails, and tonight, that will be enough for victory.

    KG played like a man among boys tonight.

    ...offense, defense, rebounding, every phase of the game.

    The second switch has been flipped.

    KG looked like the league MVP of 2004 tonight. Guarding everyone on defense, and dominating on offense. It may not happen again, but, it showed the iron in his spirt.
