Article Summary:

Collins played collegiately with the Stanford University Cardinal, with whom he earned NABC Third Team All-American and First Team All-Pac 10 honors in 2001.

He was drafted 18th overall by the Houston Rockets in the 2001 NBA draft, but was immediately traded with Brandon Armstrong and Richard Jefferson to the New Jersey Nets for Eddie Griffin. He play stints with that team, the Memphis Grizzlies, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Atlanta Hawks before he signed with the Celtics as a free agent in 2012.

The Californian played 32 games with Boston before he was dealt to the Washington Wizards with Leandro Barbosa for Jordan Crawford, having averaged 1.2 points and 1.6 rebounds per game with the team.

The game was the Celtics’ third-lowest score in franchise history and an opponent’s third-lowest scoring game as well.
