Third Quarter Wrap: Celtics vs. Cavaliers

Posted By Jessica Camerato On February 25, 2010 @ 10:14 pm In General | No Comments

Third quarters have been causes for concern for the Celtics [1] this season. The good news for the C’s is they didn’t blow the lead. The not-so-good news for the Celtics is the Cavs got back within one.

The C’s entered the third quarter up eight, 56-48. But the more LeBron James [2] got to the basket, the smaller their edge got. The Cavs trailed just 74-73 heading into the fourth.

James scored 12 points in the quarter and got to the line seven times. (He made four attempts.) Ray Allen [3] led the Celtics with seven points in the quarter, but Rajon Rondo [4] added just one to his total (15 points).

The Celtics have contained James’ teammates so far, but no lead is ever guaranteed with a clutch player on the court late in the game.
