Now on to the game: Nate Robinson led the C's with 13 points to go with 2 boards, 2 assists, a steal and 3 of 5 shooting from beyond the arc. Jermaine O'Neal had 3 blocks and 2 boards but did not score in his Celtic debut. He looked solid on defense though and had a ferocious block on Amir Johnson (pic above) that really got the crowd up. But in my eyes the key guy tonight was Marquis Daniels. He dropped in 11 points had 3 boards an assist and a steal. He really got into a good rhythm and worked well with the 2nd unit. Two of his baskets were set-up beautifully by clean, crisp passes from Semih Erden who continues to amaze me with his skill-set. The starters all played roughly 20 minutes tonight, with the exception of Shaq who played about 16. He had another solid night with 11 points, 5 boards & 2 blocks.
It was great to get back to the Garden and see alot of friends that I had not seen since last season's playoffs. Here is some video and a pic I snapped from my seats. C's next play on Tuesday at Philly. Tip-off is at 7pm.
