Jessica Camerato of CSNNE.com talked to the Celtics newcomers after the game about their first experience with Gino time as a Celtic. Click here for the full article on CSNNE.

Troy Murphy: For the first time in Murphy’s career, the sight of Gino meant his team would not be in trouble after the game. “I’ve been on a lot of Gino experiences before, just on the other end, so it’s good to be on this end of it tonight,” he told CSNNE.com. “It’s really not good [as an opponent]. You know you’re going to have a long practice the next day and you’re going to watch some film and the coach is going to be cursing, so it’s not good.”

Carlos Arroyo: Mention of Gino was news to Arroyo after the game. He was so zoned in on hearing Rivers’ timeout talk that he was unaware of the party atmosphere going on around him. “Gino? I had no idea about the Gino thing,” he told CSNNE.com. “But this is good, right? I didn’t see KG dancing -- I was focused.”

Jeff Green: A fan wearing a Gino t-shirt informed him of the significance of the video. “It was cool. I didn’t get a chance to see the whole thing because Doc (Rivers) was drawing up something, but it was good to be on the winning end of that and not seeing it on the opposite side of the court,” he said. “It feels good. I’m glad we finally got one under our belt. I think that’s something that we needed to continue our pursuit to make the push to keep this number one seed.”

Nenad Krstic: Krstic, who admitted he liked disco music, did not know about the meaning of Gino, or even watch the video. “No, I’ve never seen it,” he said. Guess that’s good for him, considering he’s never been on the losing end of it either.

Sasha Pavlovic: The victory celebration gave Pavlovic a deeper sense of appreciation for being a member of the Celtics. “I’ve seen him before. I’ve seen him when we’ve played against you guys in the playoffs,” he told CSNNE.com. “It’s fun, it’s unbelievable. I love it, I love it. It was just a great experience for me and guys are great. I’m just enjoying it now.”
