Throwback recap: Celtics vs. Bulls, Game 1 of the 2009 NBA Playoffs



Article Summary:

Rose and Noah dismantled the Celtics by themselves in this quarter, with Rose knocking down his mid-range shots and Noah rolling to the basket.

Fourth quarter

Stephon Marbury starts the quarter defending Rose, and forces what would have been a fantastic turnover for Boston had there not been a bail out call in favor of the Bulls. Noah fouls Pierce on the other end, who hits one free throw which means:


Remember Tyrus Thomas? Yeah, we lost a playoff game because he shot 3-4 in OT, drilling jumper after jumper.

The Celtics got an extra shot after an unsuccessful Pierce drive should have very clearly been called a turnover, but Ray Allen missed it.
