Game 7: The return of the bench

Posted By Paul Flannery On May 2, 2009 @ 9:30 pm In General | 1 Comment

So, who had the Celtics [1] bench in the X-factor pool? In the first half the much-maligned reserve unit shot 6-for-9 from the floor and 4-for-5 from 3-point range to score 18 points and completely turn the game around with their defensive energy, particularly from Stephon Marbury [2] and Eddie House [3].

House picked up three steals and Marbury dogged Derrick Rose [4] into having a scoreless quarter. The Bulls [5] bench, namely Brad Miller [6] and Kirk Hinrich [7] missed all five of their shots from the floor and have not been a factor.

Even Mikki Moore [8] contributed with a timely charge, four points and two rebounds. The Bulls were 3-for-14 from the floor in the second quarter and that had a lot to do with the defensive effort from the second unit.
