First quarter impressions:

A very physical game. Not just strength vs. strength but guys are getting mugged and slugged.

The 3-point shot is basically a novelty shot and is not part of the offense.

Celtics bench had McHale, Ainge while Maxwell and Henderson were the starters.

The pace is frenetic. I know it's a Finals game, but they are really getting up and down the court.

The Sauna Game - when the Celts took control of the series.
