Celtics-Jazz Game Blog: Second Quarter

Posted By Jessica Camerato On December 15, 2008 @ 6:12 pm In General | No Comments

Before the start of the second quarter Kevin Garnett [1] pulled Rajon Rondo [2] … and a ball boy … aside to demonstrate an offensive scheme. KG ran over the move three times while the ball boy had a quiet smile on his face.

– There’s a man two rows from the court wearing a Sebastian Telfair [3] jersey. Either he’s a diehard fan or he scored on the sale rack.

– Talk about a true second unit: Gabe Pruitt [4], Tony Allen [5], Brian Scalabrine [6], Glen Davis [7], and Leon Powe [8]. I’m waiting for Patrick O’Bryant [9] to check-in and then it’d feel like a real fourth quarter blow out.

– The Scal experiment has been short-lived tonight. Ray Allen’s back on the court with 8:30 left in the game, looking to push the Celtics [10] lead back up to double-digits. Here comes KG … and Rondo. Doc’s going for defense with Ray and Tony Allen, Leon Powe, Garnett, and Rondo.

– With the Celtics starters on the court the Jazz [11] have tied it up at 37. Doc Rivers [12] said it would be difficult to control the ball tonight and the Jazz have the Celtics playing sloppy.

– Here’s the problem: the Celtics aren’t hitting their shots and the Jazz are having their way in the paint. The Celtics shot 6-for-18 from the field and scored just six points in the paint in the second quarter. The Jazz, on the other hand, scored 10 points in the paint. It’s tied 43-43 at the half and still anyone’s game.
