Boston Celtics topple Washington Wizards

by james on November 3rd, 2007

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

We held our breath.

How would the three great stars mesh on the hardwood court?

Good thing they meshed early and often, because holding our breath is not really our thing.

Boston Celtics 103 - Washington Wizards 83

One of the three stars could not be happier with the situation at hand.

“I’m at a place right now in my career, I couldn’t ask for anything better,” said Pierce, who led Boston with 28 points.

Garnett did it all — 22 points, 20 rebounds, five assists, three blocks and three steals — in a dazzling debut with Boston. He was introduced to a standing ovation and left to cheers that echoed from the rafters where the team’s 16 championship banners were hanging. source

We still hold our breath now and then, because Ray Allen had 17 points, which sounds good until you realize Ray averaged around 26 last year. In fact, Ray has averaged over 20 points a year for the last 9 years. Ray only took 10 shots in the game.

At this point Ray does not seem bothered.

“People were rocking,” said Allen. “I think they’ve been anticipating this for a long time. The people in Boston, having something on the floor they can root for and rally behind all year.”

Allen admitted he was nervous to start the game, but he got over the jitters to score 17 points in his Celtics debut.

“I had to take a couple of deeper breaths and just kind of go to what I do,” he said. source

Will the quest for a title keep all three players happy, no matter what kind of stats they come up with?
