Third quarter wrap: Celtics vs. Nets

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 [1] caught and fired a three-at the basket that just missed.

Brian Scalabrine [2] rebounded and fired to an open Nate Robinson [3], 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 [4] were within nine.

But the quarter ended on a sour note as Scalabrine airmailed a three and the Nets [5] led, 74-64. The combination of Courtney Lee [6] and Brook Lopez [7] is killing the Celtics. They have a combined 44 points.
