Exciting finish to what was one of the 100-200 NBA games that just don't pan-out during the season. Full house, great crowd and two teams ready to compete. But, tonight, it just didn't happen...
Ray Allen missed a gimme and the 76ers took off on the break only to have Iguodala turn the ball over after an offensive charging foul. (Good call).
Down the other end, the Celtics ran the clock, failed to execute once more, but guard Rajon Rondo improvised and hit a turn-around pop from the corner to put the Celtics up 109-105.
It's not over 'til it's over, they say, as Iguodala nailed a three to bring it to 109-108 with 3.3 left. The 76ers fouled Ray Allen who drilled the two free throws for a 11-108 lead.
