Shaq saves the day....

The Beast wishes crowd Happy Thxgiving
When Delonte West went down near the end of the 1st half tonight, things looked really bad in Boston. The C's were really struggling and the Nets were in control. But at the beginning of the 2nd half, as we learned D.West's wrist was broken, the C's started to turn things around.

Behind Shaq's game-high 25 points, some clutch-shooting by Ray and Nate, and some all-around balling by Marquis, the C's beat a determined Nets team 89-83 tonight at the Garden. Delonte landed hard on his right wrist late in the 1st half, and the C's announced later in the game that he did in fact break it. There is no timetable for his return.

Classic Shaq
"What's that? You want more?"
This game was a struggle for the C's. The Nets, coming off a good OT win over Atlanta last night, kept fighting and never gave in.

The Captain put in 18 points, Nate and Ray both hit clutch 3's down the stretch and Marquis had an all-around solid game. He had 4 points, 4 assists, 3 rebounds, 2 steals and a block. It seemed that he was always in the right place all game long.

The Celtics are now off for Turkey Day and return to action Friday at the Garden for a rematch w/Toronto. Tip-off is at 7:30pm. Have a great Thanksgiving everyone.
