Big Baby Glen Davis and Nate Robinson

The Boston Celtics came back after defeat yet again in this NBA Finals series, beating the Los Angeles Lakers 96-89 in Game Four.  The Celtics were led by Glen “Big Baby” Davis who has performed postseason heroics previously during the Celtics 2008 NBA Finals run and Nate Robinson, who has never been to the NBA Finals during his up-and-down experience with the New York Knicks.  Both Davis and Robinson came off the bench, providing a spark that undoubtedly propelled the Celtics to victory.  The duo combined to score 30 points with Davis getting 18 points and Robinson, 12 points.  They shot 11-for-18 from the field and were the heroes of tonight’s game.  Game Five goes down Sunday night on ABC at 8PM ET.

The casual NBA fan may not recognize the new look of the league with so many players packing their bags and moving to different cities. It’s almost as if the basketball gods took the names of every NBA player, placed them in a box and shook the box wildly before reassigning those names to new rosters. Who would have thought Shaquille O’Neal and LeBron James would pair up; that Rasheed Wallace would don a Celtics uniform; that Hedo Turkoglu would leave the Eastern Conference defending champion Orlando Magic for the Toronto Raptors? Many big-named players have gravitated to veteran teams with better chances of winning an NBA title, which creates opportunities for many young, up-and-comers to have breakout seasons. While it’s too early to tell which teams will surprise and which will disappoint, it’s apparent that NBA fans are in for a roller coaster season, filled with intriguing stories and exciting twists.
