Herald Wait lifted from CelticsNo slippage with Rajon Rondo FL's Take: Rondo was awesome in his playoff debut. It seems as though right from the beginning, people were questioning Rondo and he has answered every question emphatically. Celtics return playoff aura to GardenCeltics crowd pumps up volumeFL's Take: Hopefully, the Celtics can get just as pumped up playing on the other teams courts. I know we have home court advantage and don't have to win on the road, but it sure would be nice to close out series early by winning in their buildings. Hawks swear they’re not done after oneTrade no big deal to Joe Johnson Celtics big fans of post season playPistons misfire FL's Take: This is the first big upset of the playoffs. The Sixers are playing great and the Pistons are arrogant. This may wake them up to the fact that they actually have to try to win a series. Lakers, Gasol put on show of Pau-ERFL's Take: The Nuggets lack of defense is making the Lakers look very good.

Apparently, KG does too. Leon's dunk sure did fire him up. I can see Leon playing a big part in these playoffs. He is one of the most underrated players in the league right now.

It's about time for the Rondo can't shoot talk to go away.

FL's Take: Ray is often the open man. He moves well without the ball and most teams choose to double Pierce and KG and that leaves Ray open in many cases. Fortunately for the Celtics he makes them pay more often than not. 1986 C's take 1-0 over BullsFL's Take: I just love these looks back to the 1986 season and the parallels with this season. I hope that the parallels extend all the way to the title.

But, I hate to lose him. I don't think this team is near as good without his defensive coaching. I would love to see the Celtics do whatever it took to keep him but realize that is probably isn't possible.
