Video: Celtics Play Football During Pregame Warmups

It’s hard not to be in a football mindset on Thanksgiving weekend, and the Celtics showed that Friday afternoon before their game against the Chicago Bulls.

The NBA posted this fun clip of the team playing a little 6-on-6 football on the Garden parquet during warmups.

Some quick analysis of the play: Good play action call by quarterback Brandon Bass, great lateral movement by Evan Turner on his block of Gerald Wallace and a nice slant route by wide receiver Rajon Rondo.

Given Boston’s lack of success scoring in the fourth quarter lately, Brad Stevens may want to try this play call in crunch time for upcoming matchups.
