3. Wilcox’s Rude Slam
Chris Wilcox gently reminds you that he is actually very athletic despite his facial hair.
Someone from the coaching staff forgot to remind him that the Celtics don’t dunk anymore.
2. KG Gets Howard’s Spit Out of Here
This is what a brilliant defensive mind KG has: he knows Howard’s going to take this hook before he even lifts his hands. See how he jump-stops just before Howard makes the turn to go up for the shot? Imagine being able to anticipate a dude’s move like that. Ya can’t!
(Should’ve been a goaltend. Oops!)
1. Twaun Finds Twine
This was my favorite of E’Twaun Moore’s four threes, mostly because it gave the Celtics the lead and was the emotional climax of the evening, but partly because it makes a really loud thwap as it goes through.
Headline writers must love guys like Moore whose last names are homonyms with very common words. Tonight they were like, “E’Twaun Moore had eight points in the fourth? Awesome. ‘Moore the Merrier,’ ‘Moore to Love,’ ‘Have Some Moore.’ That’s three. Peace.”
0. Avery Bradley Smorgasbord
Just a horn of lowlight plenty served up by Avery Bradley tonight! So many unforced boners to choose from. Ultimately I couldn’t decide which of these turnovers was funnier. I was paralyzed.
BONUS RYAN ANDERSON FREAKOUT
Earlier tonight I was trying to remember if Ryan Anderson was Mormon. I have concluded that he is not.
