Angels for Celtics?

Celtics wins game one. Paul Pierce was the man of the hour, coming back after a knee injury in the third quarter to carry the Boston Celtics into that 98-88 Game 1 pulsating win. It appeared like a dramatically heroic moment for Pierce, but to Lakers coach Phil Jackson, the scene was more theatrical than inspirational:

"Paul got carried off and was back on his feet in a minute," Jackson said. "I don't know if the angels visited him at halftime or in that timeout period that he had or not, but he didn't even limp when he came back out on the floor. I don't know what was going on there. Was Oral Roberts back there in their locker room? He certainly carried some energy back on the floor for them."

Ho-ho. If we go by Phil Jackson, it seems even the angels were commissioned to be Celtics fans, and they even hired a faith healer to boot. It seems likewise that the game strategies in this finals series are being hitched up several notches. It will be very interesting to watch game 2. Some feathery fans certainly would be watching too.
