(5:20 left in the half) BEAT LA! The chant is thunderous… the Garden is literally shaking (making me a bit concerned that I’m up on the 9th floor). We’re in a timeout after James Posey made another big three to put the Celtics up 43-29.
(47 seconds left in the half) Your defining shot of the game may have just happened. Kevin Garnett one handed a shot off glass as he was getting shoved to the floor. He slid backwards in the paint pumping his fist as the crowd went insane. After sinking the free throw, it’s 56-35 Celtics. Too soon to cue up Championship Gino? Maybe not as Perkins just swatted Lamar Odom, followed by a layup for the ailing big man to make it 58-35, and now it is beyond loud.
What a first half for the Celtics. Get that trophy shined up!
