Birthday Bash

RedsArmyAdmin February 22, 2009 Uncategorized 8 Comments

Rajon Rondo (32 pts, 13-18 FG, 10 assists, 6 reb, 3 stls) celebrated his 23rd birthday by dismantling the Suns. He got to the hoop whenever he wanted and made Steve Nash look 50 years old. When Rondo tailed off a bit in the 2nd half, Paul Pierce (26 pts, 6 reb) stepped up his game. Ray Allen (31 pts, 4-8 3FG) was deadly accurate all afternoon long.

The Celtics slapped the Suns and their fans back down to earth with this 128 – 108 win. Phoenix had scored 140+ in each of their last 3 games. But they were playing against the big boys today.

The Celtics took 14 more free throws than Phoenix in this game. There were plenty of moments in the 2nd half when the fans moaned and groaned after some calls. But Jeff Van Gundy was quick to point out, that most of the calls by the refs were good calls.

    Mr. Sarver,
    On behalf of all us Celtics fans, I would like to take this opportunity thank you for being a cheap, penny pinching prick and giving us Rondo for virtually nothing.
    Sincerely,
    C’s fans

    The greatest moment of Scal’s career was the post Game 6 interview. After that, he can do no wrong for me.

    Despite 19 TOs they beat the Suns by 20.
