Just a few notes of interest I thought I’d pass along…
First let’s check up on recent Celtics playing in new lands with new teams and different hopes.
The beloved Brian Scalabrine is with the Bulls and here is his stat line in his first game against the OKC Thunder in game the Bulls lost 106-95:
Brian Scalabrine – Chicago Bulls
Scal played 10:37 shot 1-1 for 2 points with an assist and a rebound. His plus/minus was –1 in that time which was much better than team mate Ronny Brewer who was –12 and 0-6 shooting in 15 minutes of time.
Eddie House – Miami Heat
Celtics: played 26:30 scoring 8 points, on 3 of 8 shooting, and 2 of 4 from the arc, 2 assists, a steal.
76ers: played 21:39 minutes scoring 3 points on 1 of 3 shooting (1of 2 from the arc) with a rebound and an assist.
Bill Walker – New York Knicks
Toronto: played 10:25 scoring zero points on 0-6 shooting with 2 rebounds, a TO and getting blocked twice.
Last but not least the inestimable Tony Allen…
Tony Allen – Memphis Grizzlies
Atlanta: played 11:04 also shooting 0-6 with a rebound, assist, TO, steal and 4 fouls, zero points
From time to time we (meaning I) will check up on them.
