After a stirring 14-0 Jazz run early in the first, the Celtics looked like they had this loss locked up. Then Utah found its mojo and scored 8 points in the 2nd quarter. A late-game Celtics push to score only 12 points in the 4th wasn’t enough to lose this game, and Boston ended up taking a devastating victory.
This game was actually very fun at times. We saw Vitor’s fall and the ascent of Kelly, the Jordan Crawford point guard experiment, and Gerald Wallace dragging ass like an itchy dog after bitching about effort for two weeks. And a win, to avoid the worst start in Celtics history. Nice to get one of those once in a while.
Grades to come!
