No backing down…..

“That’s what happens when you start busting somebody’s (expletive). They get upset like that and resort to bush league tactics.” – Eddie House after Boston’s Game 2 win.

Magic Celtics Basketball

Eddie House didn't back down from Rafer Alston on Wednesday night.

If scoring a game-high 31 points off the bench wasn’t enough Wednesday night, Eddie House decided to give Boston’s Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Orlando Magic some juicy juice.

House not only helped the Celtics tie the series, he called out Orlando guard Rafer Alston, who slapped him in the head after House hit a jumper on him, in a post game interview done by TNT NBA analyst David Aldridge.

Now let’s recap.

Whether it’s Dwight Howard elbowing Samuel Dalembert or Rajon Rondo hitting Brad Miller in the chops, the referees have had their hands full trying to keep the rough play at a minimum in the playoffs. Now NBA commissioner David Stern recently said the referees are 90 percent right, maybe up to 93 percent.

So it will be real interesting to see if Alston is suspended for Game 3 in Orlando.

Should he?
