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  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  and Eddie House .
House picked up three steals and Marbury dogged Derrick Rose  into having a scoreless quarter. The Bulls  bench, namely Brad Miller  and Kirk Hinrich  missed all five of their shots from the floor and have not been a factor.
Even Mikki Moore  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.
