One Game We Watched Last Night: Atlanta Hawks vs. Boston Celtics
Hawks: 87, Celtics: 86
Al Horford and his freshly healed pectoral muscle is starting to become a real thorn in the side of the Boston Celtics. Horford's emotional return is more than just fluff, in fact, as it was his big body that prevented Rondo from getting up a potential game-winning shot on the final play.
Speaking of Rondo, I love that he shoots threes now. You know who else made a three last night? Kevin Garnett!
You know who can't shoot threes? Ryan Hollins. But he can provide some serious energy minutes off the bench. Boy, that guy loves being out there on the basketball court in a Celtics uniform.
What else, what else? Oh yeah, how come Walter Ray Allen misses foul shots now? Not okay.
One Game We Didn't Watch Last Night: Orlando Magic vs. Indiana Pacers
Magic: 87, Pacers: 105
This was probably Stan Van's last game as head coach of the Orlando Magic. Or it wasn't, we'll never know. So even though we didn't watch, we did make sure to tune into his post-game presser because that's where SVG shines magnificent. He didn't disappoint. As one reporter introduced the premise that this past season was tough for Van Gundy both on and off the court, SVG interrupted. He said that wasn't true, that the past year has been good for him off the court because his wife likes him most of the time.
