My First NBA Game this Season

Posted by doms | Monday, December 14, 2009 | , ,

Finally, I get to catch a live NBA game this 2009-2010 season.

It was a game between the Celtics and the Bulls who figured in the most memorable series in last season's NBA playoffs.

Considering that Kevin Garnet is back and the Celts added Rasheed Wallace on their roster, I was expecting the Celts to run roughshod the Bulls even at the latter's homefloor.

But for the first two quarters, the Bulls played good enough to keep in step with the Celts, aided by a subpar shooting of Paul Pierce. The Celtics finally got away in the third quarter.

Every time Coach Vinny del Negro is shown on the screen, I amusingly thought that he will call a Flying B play, kinda like Emilio Estevez in the Mighty Ducks movies. Hehehe!!!

I also got the first glimpse of Rasheed Wallace in green uniform, kinda tamed looking, and obligingly making a three just like his ol' Piston days.

By the start of the fourth quarter, all the Celtics starters except Rondo were cooling their heels at the bench.

Final score of this NBA regular season game: Boston wins 106 - 80
