Recap: Celtics scrubs beat Heat scrubs in scrubby game


Sasha Pavlovic's hot shooting propelled the Celtics to a 78-66 win over the Miami Heat. I repeat, Sasha Pavolvic's hot shooting propelled the Celtics to a victory.

Sasha had 12 of his 16 points in the 4th quarter as Boston outscored Miami 28-16. The C's scored more points in the 4th quarter than they did in the entire 1st half.

In case you were in a coma all day, you should know LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, Mickael Pietrus and Greg Stiemsma did not play.

This game was hideous, especially the 1st half. It was a turnover fest.

Paul Pierce had 8 points and 6 turnovers in 18 minutes. He should have taken the night off.

Marquis Daniels played with confidence and it showed – 13 points, 5 rebounds.

Sean Williams was active – 5 points, 4 rebounds, 2 steals, 2 blocks – but he's an adventure on offense. 

Keyon Dooling suffered a cut under his right eye, courtesy an elbow rrom James Jones.

The Hawks also won tonight, but the Celtics can still secure home court in 1st round. They need to beat Milwaukee Thursday night and have Hawks lose to Dallas. 

Box score

"That was one of the worst games I've had to witness. You guys should all shower to get the stink off of you." – Heat forward Shane Battier.
