Game 4: First quarter update
Posted By Paul Flannery On May 10, 2009 @ 8:42 pm In General | 1 Comment
After one the Celtics  are down 28-25, but it has been a noticeably different Celtics team than the one we saw Friday night. Rajon Rondo  has been aggressively attacking the basket and he is too quick for Rafer Alston  to handle.
Dwight Howard  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  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 . 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.
