GreenLight Madness: Celtics Top 64 Plays: Round 3 (#5 Seed vs #12 Seed)

Jay July 18, 2011 Uncategorized Comments Off

The 2011 post-season for the Celtics was short-lived due to a handful of unfortunate circumstances.  One of them is when Rajon Rondo was taken down by Dwyane Wade and thus dislocated his left elbow.  The first play in today's matchup displays the heart and toughness of one of the smallest players on the court, determined to help lead the green to victory.  Going against that is a spectacularly surprising baseline slam by Ray Allen.

Seed #5: Rondo Steals and Dunks After Elbow Injury – After getting taken down by Dwyane Wade and having his arm removed from normal musculoskeletal structure, Rajon Rondo returned and led the Celtics to their only victory against the Heat. This play he steals the ball with his injured arm, then sort of slams it home. Again, given the circumstances it was an inspiring and amazing play. Unfortunately it was also a huge factor in the C's downfall.


Seed #12: Ray Posterizes Bosh – Ray makes a post entry pass to KG who is being defended by Joel Anthony. As Ray passes, he cuts baseline and KG hands it off to him and simultaneously screens his man, Dwyane Wade. Chris Bosh recognizes this a bit too late and surprisingly gets posterized by Ray.
