First Quarter Wrap: Celtics vs. Nets

Posted By Mike Petraglia On February 27, 2010 @ 1:40 pm In General | No Comments

The Celtics [1] stayed true to form racing out to a 12-2 lead. Unfortunately, their second-half form also came out when they allowed the 5-52 Nets to go on a 16-6 run to tie the game at 18.

Like Thursday night, the Celtics were on fire from the floor, shooting a blazing 11-for-16 to start the opening quarter and finishing 12-for-19. Kevin Garnett [2] made all four of his shots and finished with eight points.

Devin Harris, who is second on the Nets [3] in scoring at 16.5 points a game, nearly had that many in the opening period, netting 11, including all six free throws.

Nate Robinson [4] saw his most significant playing time in the first quarter in his third game with the Celtics. He came in for Rajon Rondo [5] and played eight of the 12 minutes and scored four points.

Keyon Dooling [6] drilled a three just before the first-quarter buzzer to give Nets a 29-27 lead.
