Jason Maxiell blocks Kevin Garnett slam, unreal

by james on May 28th, 2008

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

The story of game four of the NBA playoffs between Boston and Detroit was defense.

Detroit won with defense. Jason Maxiell, Rasheed Wallace, and Antonio McDyess ganged up to make it a long night for Kevin Garnett. He was very tentative as the game went on.

Check out this video of Jason Maxiell blocking a slam attempt by Kevin Garnett.

Although Antonio McDyess was the story of the game, this highlight was too good to pass up. Dyess did play out of his mind.

McDyess was the best player on either team — grabbing every rebound, hitting 18-foot jumpers, leading the Pistons to a 94-75 victory. McDyess scored eight points before the Celtics had a chance to check out the cheerleaders, let alone make a shot.


The series is tied 2 - 2 now and will head back to Boston. Expect Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen to shoot much better in Boston. The Celtics will be much more offensively aggressive in Boston.

Meanwhile, Chauncey Billups really had to tough it out with the bad hamstring and it showed. He could use a rest.

Boston probably takes game 5 and then it heads back to Detroit for a chance for the Pistons to make it a 7 game series.
