The third quarter featured the first energy moment of the game.
With just one second remaining on the shot clock on an inbounds play, Rasheed Wallace  caught and fired a three-at the basket that just missed.
Brian Scalabrine  rebounded and fired to an open Nate Robinson , who drilled a three of his own with 1:35 remaining and the crowd came to its feet. Moments later on missed shot by New Jersey, Robinson came down and put pack a missed shot and the Celtics  were within nine.
But the quarter ended on a sour note as Scalabrine airmailed a three and the Nets  led, 74-64. The combination of Courtney Lee  and Brook Lopez  is killing the Celtics. They have a combined 44 points.
