At the start of the fourth … Celtics 89, Suns 58
– Rajon Rondo starts the fourth quarter with 23 points, five rebounds, and seven assists. Now is a good time to remember the Suns drafted Rondo with the 21st pick in the 2006 NBA Draft and traded him to Boston. Celtics fans everywhere are thanking the Suns for that generous move.
– Second unit plus Scal is in: Pruitt, House, Davis, Powe, Scalabrine. For the Suns it’s Barbosa, Lopez, Amundson, Barnes, and Tucker.
– There’s a “We want Walker” chant starting near Section 20. The Celtics are up 31 with 11 minutes to go … a perfect situation for the rookie to get some PT.
– Gino is warming up backstage.
– Patrick O’Bryant wiped out Goran Dragic at the top of the key. Dragic is 6’4.
– Final score … Celtics 104, Suns 87
