Leon leads Celtics Past Heat

The Boston Celtics had a record setting game Sunday by holding the Miami Heat to an NBA record low 17 field goals in their 88-62 win.
The MVP for this record setting game was of course Leon Powe once again. Leon lead the Celtics with 17 points and a career high 13 rebounds. I wish I could say that was Leon's career game, but I can't. Leon wasn't even on fire like he can often be. That was about half of what Powe is capable of doing on any given night. But despite it not being his best game, I still have to give a tip of the hat to Leon for a great performance. I certainly see Leon being a 20/10 guy in the near future, and I hope his minuets will continue to increase as the regular season comes to a close.
Great job by Leon's supporting cast as well. The starters got a lot of rest in this game, and the bench did a fine job shutting down the Heat, despite the lack of quality players.
