Celtics’ “Big Baby” Hits Buzzer Beater, Pushes Kid

Celtics Magic BasketballTotal Pro Sports – In what was a must win Game 4 for the Celtics, down by one point in the dying seconds, the Celtics needed one of their clutch shooters to step up and hit the buzzer-beating basket.  So who did they call upon?  thats right, Glen “Big Baby” Davis.

With the series between the Celtics and the Orlando Magic, Boston can now thank their rather large forward for his high pressure game winnig shot.  With guys like Paul Pierce and Ray Allen on your team, who would have though that it would be Big Baby taking the game in his hands, but that is exactly what he did.  As for his celebration afterwards?  Why not push a kid on the sidelines next to the Magic bench while you run towards your teammates.  You can he doesn’t get to do this all too often.  About the big basket, Davis said the following:

“Since I have been with the Celtics, I have been trying to find my niche in our system.  (Coach) Doc (Rivers) told me that if you work on that shot and show me you can make it, I am going to let you shoot it. This year has been proof of hard work. You just have to be focused. You have to make sure you understand the moment, the clock situation, and basically think without thinking. You just have to shoot it.”  [TSN.ca]

Now the series is tied 2-2.  With 21 points to go along with his buzzer beater, Big Baby is the hero for now, but don’t expect him to be the go-to guy down the stretch from now on.  I’d assume the Celtics leave that role for Allen and Pierce.  In the mean time, why not relive the moment that is Big Baby nailing some poor little kid.
