Fast Break: Celtics vs. Cavaliers
Posted By Jessica Camerato On February 25, 2010 @ 10:48 pm In General | No Comments
Well, it happened again.
The Celtics  blew a one-point fourth quarter lead and found themselves looking at a double-digit deficit down the stretch.
The Cavaliers  simply had more hustle and more energy when it counted. They outscored the Celtics 35-14 in the fourth to take away a 108-88 victory in Boston.
Player of the Game: LeBron James  carried his team the entire game. He had scored 32 of the Cavaliers 73 points after three and finished the night with 36.
Turning Point:The Cavaliers took a 75-74 lead off of a J.J. Hickson bucket and never looked back. Even with James on the bench, they stretched the lead and created a cushion for James when he returned.
- Marquis Daniels  played 24 minutes starting in place of Paul Pierce . Despite battling the flu, he played strong defense against James early on and helped the Celtics maintain their first half lead.
- Kendrick Perkins  and James got involved in a tiff in the fourth quarter. Perkins took offense to James’ foul, and Anderson Varejao stepped in to interject. Varejao got whistled for a technical.
- It was a night of debuts at the Garden. Former Celtic Leon Powe  played his first game of the regular season while newly acquired Marcus Landry made his debut for the C’s.
