The Shaq and Rondo show...

The C's go to OT for the 3rd time this season and pull out a win over Memphis 116-110. I remember being at the Garden during last week's game vs the Bulls and telling a friend "if we can go 2-2 on this road trip I'll be happy." 3-1 with wins in Miami and OKC? Yessir.

Shaquille O'Neal came out of the gate absolutely insane tonight, scoring bucket after bucket on dunks and layups in the 1st quarter. He finished with 18 and 6, the best performance of his very young career in green. Rondo again put up ridiculous dime numbers with 17 assists. He has now had 15 or more assists in 7 of the C's 10 games this year.

Paul Pierce failed to get a shot up at the end of regulation, but still had a great night, leading all-scorers with 28 points, including some key shots in the 4th and 9 of 9 shooting from the line.

Nate Robinson was excellent off the bench, putting in 15 points and nailing 3 hoops from downtown.

The C's now have a much-needed 3 days off before they face the Wizards back in Boston on Wednesday. This will be the first game of the year where Delonte West will be eligible to play. His 10-game suspension ended after tonight's game w/Memphis. It will also be Boston's first taste of super-rookie John Wall. Should be alot of fun. I am debating on buying myself a ticket for this one. Tip-off will be at 7:30pm...
