Game 4: A strategic shift

Posted By Paul Flannery On May 10, 2009 @ 9:49 pm In General | 1 Comment

The Celtics [1] came out for what might be the most important half of their season intent on putting the game in the hands of Paul Pierce [2] and Ray Allen [3]. They have been running high isolation pick and rolls with Pierce at the point and Allen setting the screen.

Pierce, who scored 18 points in the first half, kept it going in the early minutes of the third quarter making a pair of jumpers and getting to the line. Allen, who was held to just four points on four shots also made a couple of pull-up jumpers. It’s a pretty radical shift in strategy but so far it’s paid dividends.
