Yeah, he re-entered the game after the doctor popped it back in and, no, Dwyane Wade didn't hurt him by playing dirty. Wade was frustrated, Rondo gave him plenty of reason to be, both were tangling each other up pretty nasty.
KG was 5-for-11 within ten feet in Games 1 & 2, 9-for-13 in Game 3 (ESPN Stats/Info). The esoteric knowledge that big men playing big wins games is being let out of the bag. Don't forget crediting Jeff Green's isolation defense, along with excellent team ball denial (Jeff Clark, Celtics Blog). The Heat are gonna take a lot of crap for the isolations, but Boston made the pick n' roll impossible.
The Miami Big Three was pea-sized. Wade, LeBron James, and Chris Bosh combined for a season-low 44 points, their starting lineup was a minus-19 in ten minutes to lower the unit's +/- to an NBA-low minus-69. Tom Haberstroh found (Heat Index): "Bibby has shot 7-for-28 (25 percent) from beyond the arc in the playoffs, while Ilgauskas has shot 3-for-8 on long 2s. Combined, the two are a horrific 12-for-48 (25 percent) beyond 15 feet in the playoffs."
Bosh's postgame presser ending is awesome. "Psshhh, maaannnnn!":
Zach Randolph's heroics (21 pts., 21 rbs.) returned, leading his team to a 16-point comeback, but Tony Allen's defense on Kevin Durant was legendary. With Allen on him, KD went 0-for-7 in 4th quarter and OT (ESPN Stats/Info) after having come into the game only shooting 23.1% on Allen.
