The Madness marches on as the NBA dog days of summer (and hopefully not) the lockout approach. In a bit of a surprise, yesterday's matchup was a bit of an upset, especially by the amount of votes that Pierce's Posterization of Kris Humphries defeated Big Baby's rejection of JaVale McGee. However, it might not nearly be as shocking as the 25th seed in today's matchup.
Seed #25: Jeff Green Chase Down Block on Gordon Heyward – In just his second game as a member of the Boston Celtics, Jeff Green played a fantastic game, but this might be his single most impressive play of the year. One of the reasons Green was brought here was to be able t help defend against the likes of LeBron James in the playoffs. Well in this play, he actually emulates the defense ofLeBron. The Celtics are clinging to a one-point lead with just under 10 minutes left to play in Utah. The Jazz are on a fast break and CJ Miles finds a streaking Gordon Heyward. Green pulls a LeBron with the amazing chase-down rejection.
Seed #40 – Ray and Pierce Bombs Tune out Jazz – It's the same game as Green's block and the C's still maintain a one-point lead, but now things are truly crunch time. With just over three minutes to play, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce decide they've had enough and drop a handful of bombs to seal the win and complete a 3-1 post all-star game road trip.
