Celtics vs. Hornets: First quarter wrap

Posted By Paul Flannery On February 10, 2010 @ 8:41 pm In General | No Comments

The Celtics [1] started off hot, but the Hornets got hotter making eight of their first 10 shots in a back-and-forth first quarter that ended with New Orleans holding a 29-27 lead. Playing without Ray Allen [2], who was sent back to the team hotel with bask spasms, the Celtics turned the ball over nine times.

Paul Pierce [3] did play, however, and he led the Celtics with nine points. Rookie Darren Collison and big man David West each scored eight points for the Hornets. New Orleans coach Jeff Bower picked up a technical foul in the opening minutes.
