First Half Notes

Couldn't have a better start than watching the Pistons drop game one to the 76ers.  Now it is up to the Celtics to avoid falling into the same kind of trap.

  • Pierce started off hot with 3 triples in the first quarter.
  • Perkins fell into his old habit of picking up early fouls.
  • Rondo didn't back down from Bibby one bit, taking it at him strong.
  • It is concerning that the bench gave up a 14 point lead (down to 2) and needed Garnett to bail them out.
  • They finished out the first half strong.
  • Ok, except for the last play where Pierce threw it to nobody in particular for a turnover.

FYI: More highlights are coming after the game and a game recap is coming sometime later tonight.
