Game 6 First Quarter Blog thoughts

ORLANDO – Some early thoughts from Amway Arena. Doc Rivers , who stressed the importance of his big men to play disciplined before the game, sent an early message to Glen Davis . The hero of Game 4 would not return the rest of the quarter as the Celtics  shot out to a 25-22 lead after one, quieting a crowd that was already nervous.
At 10:41, after getting Boston’s first basket on a layup, Davis pulled out after committing first foul and replaced by Brian Scalabrine . At 9:29 Dwight Howard  dunked for his first basket. At 9:09, Howard with a put-back dunk. At 8:33 Perkins as shot clock expired. At 7:46 Howard gets easy layup then taunts and gets a technical foul.
Howard started 3-for-4 while the rest of the team started 0-for-9 before Rafer Alston  drilled a three-pointer midway through the quarter.
Magic were ice cold in first quarter and shot just 9-for-26.
