Last night Scalabrine returned to the Garden floor as an assistant coach with Golden State (quick sidebar -- when Jordan Crawford checked in late in the 1st quarter for his first appearance back in Boston since being traded in January, the moment was met with dead silence. I honestly think I may have been the only person in the building clapping). There's not much to watch for from an assistant coach during the course of a game; the most excitement we got from Scal was seeing him walk out onto the court during timeouts.
With the seconds winding down at the end of the 3rd quarter, the Warriors were pummeling the Celtics by the score of 84-54. It was time for Golden State to empty their bench, and the famous "Scal-a-brin-e" chant broke out once again among the longtime Garden faithful. Unfortunately Scal did not rip off his suit (like Clark Kent becoming Superman) to reveal a jersey underneath and enter the game.
