Celtics Go Small to Start Second Quarter

Up 30-18, the Celtics [1] started the second quarter with an undersized lineup of Gabe Pruitt [2], Eddie House [3], Tony Allen [4], Glen Davis [5], and Leon Powe [6]. Powe, playing the five spot,  quickly earned his share of bruises by single-handedly taking on the Nets [7] under the basket on two consecutive possessions.

Rivers subbed Bill Walker [8] in for Pruitt around the seven-minute mark. The PG got his first rest after playing 16 minutes (6 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists). House shifted to the one and and Allen to the two, giving the Celtics more size on the perimeter.
