SPEAKING
``We both tried to will our team to victory and, just like Dominique Wilkins, I ended up on the short end and the Celtics won again. I think the second round of the postseason, Game 7, these fans will finally have an opportunity to forget a little bit about what Larry Bird and Dominique Wilkins did and remember what Paul and LeBron did.'' - LeBron James after Cleveland's 97-92 loss to Boston on Sunday on a matchup between Bird and Atlanta's Wilkins 20 years ago. James finished with 45 points and Paul Pierce had 41 to lead the Celtics.
