Game 4: First quarter update

After one the Celtics [1] are down 28-25, but it has been a noticeably different Celtics team than the one we saw Friday night. Rajon Rondo [2] has been aggressively attacking the basket and he is too quick for Rafer Alston [3] to handle.

Dwight Howard [4] picked up two early fouls, but the Magic got a lift from their bench, particularly Marcin Gortat who came in for Howard and scored six points. The Celtics got caught in a strange situation when it looked like Kendrick Perkins [5] picked up his second foul for an illegal screen. Perkins went to the bench, but after the substitution had been made the refs changed the call to Paul Pierce [6]. Without Perkins in the game, Gortat was able to get two offensive rebounds over the smaller lineup and converted the second into a score.

Orlando started the game shooting 3-for-12, but with the second unit in the game, they made seven of 11.
