GreenLight Madness: Celtics Top 64 Plays: Round 3 (#7 Seed vs #23 Seed)

Jay July 19, 2011 Uncategorized Comments Off

As we have learned that the Celtics and Knicks may face each other on Christmas Day (assuming a deal gets done to end the lockout), it's evident by this tournament that these teams had some memorable moments this past season.  Most of them were in favor of the C's, including this trickery by Rajon Rondo.  Matching up against Rondo is one of Kevin Garnett's posterizations this season, this time at the expense of JaVale McGee.

Seed #7: Rondo Dances on the Baseline Finds Ray for Three – Rondo first sneaks over Amare Stoudemire for an offensive rebound from a Paul Pierce miss, and touch-passes it to Jermaine O'Neal who misses the lay-up. Then, he hustles in for another offensive rebound, dribbles around his back and between the legs while dancing on the baseline then finishes it off with a pass to Ray for a baseline three. Beautiful.


Seed#23: KG Posterizes McGee – The Celtics are clinging to a mere three-point lead with just over a minute remaining in the first half. Rajon Rondo is calling for what looks like a basic "Floppy" play for Ray Allen. The Wizards seem to snuff this out at first, but Ray uses a quick screen-and-roll option and bounces a pass to KG who posterizes McGee.
