Quantcast



The Boston Celtics made some line-up changes against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night, partially because of a left toe injury to Marcus Smart, and partially because head coach Brad Stevens was looking to shake things up a bit. The C's started bench players Amir Johnson, Jared Sullinger and Isaiah Thomas in place of David Lee, Tyler Zeller and Marcus Smart. However, they fell short in the final seconds of the game.

One of the most memorable plays of the night was Jae Crowder's full court shot, which was intended as an inbound pass in the waning seconds of the 2nd quarter, but ended up going in. Unfortunately the bucket did not count, but it did trend on Twitter.


Isaiah Thomas led Boston in scoring with 27 points, followed by Avery Bradley with 21. Jared Sullinger flirted with a double-double, scoring 9 points and grabbing 11 rebounds.
