Celtics-Nets Game Blog: Second Quarter
Posted By Jessica Camerato On January 14, 2009 @ 8:14 pm In General | No Comments
FIRST HALF NUMBERS: Celtics  lead 51-41 at halftime thanks to 52.6% shooting from the field. KG leads all players with 14 points (6/8 FG) and Ray Allen  has 10. The Celtics have also attempted 12 treys (4/12 3PG) compared to the Nets  four (1/4). They slowed down Devin Harris in the second quarter (5 points) and limited his passing to just two assists.
Second Quarter Notes
– The second quarter gets underway with Ray Allen … Paul Pierce  … Big Baby smiling from ear-to-ear after draining a three from way past the arc. That was Davis’ first trey of his NBA career.
– Pierce is in with the second unit (Davis/Powe/House/Pruitt). Vince Carter , who threw himself on to the Nets bench earlier in the game, is on the court. He’s a little hobbled but still aggressive at the hoop.
– Kudos to Big Baby for his effort on the boards. He may not be grabbing every missed shot but he is in the mix each time the ball goes up.
– Back by popular demand (allegedly), Celtics Slow Dance 3. It’s another slo-mo video montage of memorable dance moves from the Garden set to LoneStar’s “Amazed.” I’ll give the prize to my personal favorite, Soulja Boy Junior.
– Brook Lopez  is back in with Davis and Powe as the Celtics big men. Doc Rivers , who has been watching Lopez since high school, said the key to guarding him is keeping him off the glass rather than trying to get your own rebounds.
– No look pass from KG to Big Baby for a three-point play. I hope the fans sitting courtside were looking when Davis jumped into them chasing a loose ball. Davis has four fouls in 12 minutes, not including barrelling over spectators.
– Who said Rondo didn’t have a jumper? He drained a 20-footer as the shot clock expired. If only he could do that every night …
– KG ended the second quarter with huge “think about this at halftime” dunk.
- At the half … Celtics 51, Nets 41
