The Eastern Conference: Where Not Every Game Counts
Everything is locked up for the Celtics playoff-wise so Doc Rivers has started resting the starters and giving the bench guys plenty of minutes.
The Celtics (62-15) defeated Milwaukee (26-51), 107-104 in overtime last night in Wisconsin.
I watched about two minutes of the game (it was that exciting) so I don't really know why I'm bothering to write about it. Anyhow, KG led the C's with 21 points in 20 minutes. Tony Allen (17 points), James Posey (16 points, 9 rebounds) and Leon Powe (14 points) were the stars off the bench.
Paul Pierce had 14 points, Ray Allen had 11 points and Kendrick Perkins had 10 rebounds. No starter played more than Ray Allen's 22 minutes.
Michael Redd led the Bucks with a game-high 25 points. Andrew Bogut had the rare triple-double, 15 points, 15 rebounds and 10 turnovers. Desmond Mason scored 14, Ramon Sessions and Bobby Simmons both had 13 while Royal Ivey notched 12.
Both team had 23 turnovers so it truly sounds like it was one of the classic games of the '07-'08 season.
Only five more games of this garbage. The regular season ends next Wednesday and then the real games begin a week from Saturday. The Celts get right back at it tonight in our nation's capital against the Wizards, who have also clinched a playoff spot.
