First quarter: Celtics-Wizards

Posted By Paul Flannery On March 7, 2010 @ 8:37 pm In General | No Comments

The obvious fear when playing a team like the Washington Wizards [1] at 8 p.m. on a Sunday night is that the Celtics [2] wouldn’t come out with enough energy. That was the story of the first 12 minutes as the C’s, and the crowd, sleepwalked through a 25-19 Wizards lead.

The Celtics dutifully worked the ball inside and got good shots, but they didn’t fall, going 7-for-21 from the floor. With favorable matchups at almost every position, the Celtics couldn’t seem to settle on a plan of attack.

The best idea involved Paul Pierce [3] who had his way with Al Thornton and scored seven points. Washington’s Andray Blatche [4], who has been a revelation after the Wizards’ housecleaning at the trade deadline, has eight points and five rebounds.
