Not a typographical error in the headline, but according to Sasha Andrade of the "Local 10 News Saturday Morning" on Miami ABC the Philadelphia 76ers are now the orally pleasing "Philadelphia 69ers."
With 4:16 remaining in Saturday night's deciding Game 7, Paul Pierce fouled out and things looked bleak for the Boston Celtics. Then Rajon Rondo took over. The pesky point guard put Boston on his back and rattled off nine points in a row after Pierce fouled out. Rondo finished with his second triple-double of the series, 18 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists and each is represented in the video above. Rondo's ninth career triple-double plus Kevin Garnett's 18 points and 13 rebounds helped propel the Celtics to an 85-75 victory over Philadelphia. In the final seconds of the game with the Celtics leading comfortably, the Boston crowd chanted, "Beat the Heat!," which the Celtics will need to prove starting Monday night in Miami. This will actually be the third consecutive season that the Celtics and Heat square off in the playoffs. In 2010 the Celtics beat the Heat in five games in the first round and the Heat won in five games last year in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
