The Celtics got worked by the Magic last night, as Jameer Nelson went nuts from behind the arc, Dwight Howard threw down some nasty dunks, and even J.J. Redick got hot for a stretch. The Magic offense was hitting on all cylinders for sure.
In a bizarre game that was called horribly both ways, “Big Baby” got a concussion and was so shaken up he fell over. But an even bigger loss was Kendrick Perkins, who was called for 2 technical fouls — the second of which was the worst technical call I have ever seen. I expected you’ll see the second “T” if not both of them rescinded today — if not the Celtics are in big trouble as they’ll be without Perkins for game 6 if he gets suspended a game for accumulating 7 technicals in the playoffs. Perkins, who didn’t commit any foul whatsoever, even walked away from the ref after the call was made yet still was “T’d” up.
Either way, this series just got a whole lot more interesting.
