The Blazers had four turnovers in the first three minutes of the game, but Boston’s poor shooting kept them from building any kind of a lead here in the first quarter. The C’s are shooting 35 percent and are 0-for-5 from three-point land.
Gabe Pruitt and Glen Davis checked in at the 1:54 mark, a remarkable fact considering both have played very little this season. Pruitt calmy drained a jumper on his first offensive possession, and Davis followed on the next possession with an offensive rebound.
Ray Allen is matched up with Brandon Roy, and judging by his intensity it looks like Allen is taking it as a personal challenge. Roy is getting the better of the matchup right now with seven points.
