Game 1: Third quarter update

Posted By Paul Flannery On May 4, 2009 @ 9:54 pm In General | 1 Comment

After playing uninspired ball in the first half, the Celtics [1] came out stronger in the third quarter, but failed to cut into Orlando’s lead all that much and trail 78-62 heading into the fourth quarter. Rajon Rondo [2] led the charge, scoring 10 of his 12 points in the quarter, with all of it coming at the free throw line. He even challenged Dwight Howard [3] with a tough drive to the basket, but the Magic made five 3-pointers in the quarter, which kept the C’s at bay.

The Celtics are still shooting just 38 percent from the floor, while Orlando is at 49 percent. It’s a simple game sometimes. They need to make more shots and force the Magic to miss if they’re going to get back into it.
