Celtics-Wizards Game Blog: Fourth Quarter
|01.02.09 at 7:22 pm ET|
The fourth quarter kicks off with New England Patriots QB Matt Cassel helping Lucky out with a slam dunk. The standing ovation was so loud there was no telling the Pats has been eliminated from the playoffs.
- It’s garbage time with both second units on the court. Davis/Powe/TA/House/Pruitt vs. McGee/Songalia/Crittenton/Young/Dixon.
- Pruitt and Young were college teammates at USC. Young was a first rounder in the 2007 Draft, Pruitt went at #32. So far Young has seen more playing time but Pruitt has a ring, so you take your pick.
- The Garden is still surprisingly packed with the Celtics up 90-62 halfway through the fourth quarter. After a 1-3 road trip, the fans can’t get enough of winning again.
- Gino’s on … O’Bryant’s in … it’s almost closing time.
- After yesterday’s talking-to at practice, O’Bryant’s alley-oop dunk got KG to his feet.
- Teammates no more: Pruitt got swatted to the ground by Etan Thomas. Young walked by … and kept on going. It’s true, basketball is a business.
- The nail is officially in the coffin. Scal hit a trey with three minutes to go, putting the Celtics over the 100-point mark.
