Garnett Steals It! Celtics 109 Magic 106

 

ESPN Box ScoreMagic BasketballOrlando Pinstriped Post

Down the stretch, the big three delivered.

Bad Things Are About To Happen To J-Rich

Ray Allen knocked in two huge fourth-quarter three pointers to quell the building Orlando momentum as the game raced to a finish. Allen ran around screen after screen to get open for a team-high 26 points, on scintillating (and increasingly typical) 8-11 shooting.

After taking a total of 0 (zero) fourth-quarter shots until the final minute, Paul Pierce finally knocked in an and-one elbow jumper to put the C’s up for good. Then he swatted away a late-game three-pointer on the defensive end.

And Kevin Garnett, returning after a 9-game absence from a strained calf, put in 19 points and 8 rebounds in 31 impressive minutes, including a potentially game-saving steal of a Jameer Nelson pass on the second last Orlando possession of the game.

By the time, they got the ball back for their final shot, it was too late.

The Celtics had this one wrapped up.

So, while it was by no means easy with Dwight Howard unloading on an overmatched Celtics’ frontline to tally 33 points and 13 rebounds, Boston passed this test without Kendrick Perkins and Delonte West (both of whom, we might add, could have addressed a couple of major problems tonight).

But we’ll get into those later on.

For now, enjoy the win.

    What a fantastic game, and a fantastic finish. Paul with the huge and 1, and KG with the clutch play on defense.

    I love this team

    We saw tonight exactly what Garnett brings to our team! Not just great plays, but leadership, confidence, passion, aggressivenes,s and much more! Things not found on a scouting report! Celtics are gonna cause havoc for teams come playoffs when at full strength!

    Go C’s!!!

    Really nice win. But can someone besides KG get a damned rebound. 2nd chance points kept Orlando in this one and also kept Gino from making an appearance tonight.

    • Devin_in_Maine

      Perk will help in that area.

    Well this win worked great as a salve for yesterdays loss by the Pats. Stung a few times putting it on, (Nate among other things), but I'll take a win anyway they come.

  • thetruthhurts

    i havent been this excited about a team in a while. they show times of absolute brilliance. IF they are healthy come playoffs, they will be unstoppable.
