END first quarter, Bucks 27-26: A 3-point play by Brandon Jennings, his only hoop of the game, has the Bucks up by 1 after one. Jennings was isolated on Tony Allen, which was problematic enough until Allen ran into a pick and Brian Scalabrine had to guard Jennings.

2:28 first quarter, Celtics 23-20: Tony Allen checks into the game, along with Rasheed Wallace and Brian Scalabrine. True second unit out there, along with Ray Allen.

3:37 first quarter, Celtics 22-18: Quite a start for Paul Pierce, who has 9 points and is 4 of 6 from the floor. He's getting to the basket, which is where he's always at his best. Shifty.

6:42 1st quarter, Celtics 11-9: Brandon Jennings is 0 for 3.

9:20 1st quarter, Celtics 6-4: Kevin Garnett is trying to take it to Ersan Ilyasova early. Rajon Rondo's already thrown two alley-oops KG's way.

Pregame: Guy behind me said, during introductions, "Oh they're playing the Bucks." Nevertheless there were a few cheers for Brandon Jennings.

Also it's the 121st consecutive home sellout, which the fans don't seem too jazzed about but is pretty impressive considering the awful economy and the empty seats in just about every other arena anywhere in every other sport.
