Game 5: First quarter update
Posted By Paul Flannery On May 12, 2009 @ 8:31 pm In General | 2 Comments
What can you say about a quarter in which the home team shoots 6-for-22 and the visiting team’s All-Star center grabs nine rebounds and scores zero points? The operative word here is “bizarre.”
The Celtics  came out with a lot of energy and seemed a step ahead of Orlando, but after getting an early 8-4 lead, it’s been all Magic. Orlando has been aggressively helping on any and every Celtics drive to the basket and that has let to a lot of kick-out jump shots. Make that a lot of kick-out jump shot misses.
Ray Allen’s cold shooting has continued (0-for-4) and Rajon Rondo  and Paul Pierce  are each 1-for-4. The Magic, meanwhile, have relied on Rashard Lewis and Hedo Turkoglu  who scored 14 points and combined to go 7-for-9 from the floor.
