Less than 48 hours after beating Queen James and the Cleveland Cavaliers..The Boston Celtics defeated the Detroit Pistons 88-79 in the first game of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Scoring was led by Kevin Garnett , 26 points.
Paul Pierce threw in some beautiful fall away shots and had 22 points.
Rajon Rondo had 5 steals and 7 assists to go along with 11 points
Kendrick Perkins had 10 rebounds and really helped to control the boards.
We are still waiting to see Ray Allen step up ( 9pts) but I saw glimmers of the old Ray in this game.
The Boston Red Sox followed up the remarkable No Hit performance by John Lester , a cancer survivor, on Monday. With another fine pitching performance by rookie Justin Masterson who notched his first win in the Majors.
For Jason Varitek's it was his 4th No Hitter as catcher and it should put him in the record books and maybe even the Hall of Fame.
The last 2 No Hitters pitched in the Majors were pitched by Red Sox Pitchers!!
Tonight the Red Sox faithful will get their first look at Bartolo Colon on the mound, the 35 year old pitcher will start against the Kansas City Royals tonight in Boston.
