Game 3: Third quarter update
Posted By Paul Flannery On May 8, 2009 @ 9:10 pm In General | 1 Comment
After 33 minutes, the Celtics  were down by 18 points. Three minutes later, the Magic lead is down to nine and suddenly we have a very interesting fourth quarter ahead of us. Orland’s penchant for blowing leads late in games is becoming legendary and they have set themselves up for another test.
The change came when Doc Rivers  inserted Stephon Marbury  into the lineup and he began to pressure Anthony Johnson fullcourt. The shots that were coming so easy previously, were suddenly nowhere to be found and when Rajon Rondo  picked Johnson’s pocket and race down the floor for a dunk the Celtics had cut a humongous lead down to a manageable size.
All of this came without Dwight Howard  on the floor, who has been a force at both ends of the floor tonight.
