Game 5: Marbury comes alive
|05.12.09 at 10:06 pm ET|
When Rajon Rondo went to the bench with his fourth foul midway through the third quarter, Stephon Marbury lasted just four minutes before he was yanked in favor of Eddie House.
Look who’s back. Marbury checked back in at the 8:49 mark of the fourth quarter and proceeded to score 11 points in just under three minutes. The problem for the Celtics is the lineup they have on the floor–Marbury, Eddie House, Ray Allen, Brian Scalabrine and Glen Davis hasn’t been able to keep Dwight Howard and Tony Battie from getting easy baskets on the other end.
With 5:55 left the Celtics trail 83-74 and Marbury will be going to the line for his 12th point.
