    That was quick – just days after Stephon Marbury and the New York Knicks parted ways, Marbury agreed to terms with the Boston Celtics, passed his physical and helped the Celtics beat the Indiana Pacers in a closer than expected game on Friday night in Boston.  The Celtics needed a 9-0 run in the 4th quarter to pull away from the Pacers and Marbury was right in the middle of it, scoring 6 of 8 points during that span.  Marbury played 12 minutes – scoring 8 points, dishing out 2 assists and committing 3 turnovers.  Celtics teammates and Celtics fans both seemed to welcome the controversial guard with open arms.  Let’s see how long the honeymoon actually lasts.

    Our prediction is that Marbury acts professionally for the Celtics the rest of the season.  A good showing with no issues or problems, could set Marbury up for a nice payday from some stupid NBA GM for the 2009-2010 NBA season.  It should be fun to see how this all plays out.

    As for the rest of the game. Troy Murphy (20 points and 13 rebounds) and T.J. Ford (23 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists) led the way for a solid effort by the Indiana Pacers.  Ray Allen led the Celtics with 30 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists.  Rajon Rondo was a one-man assist machine – dishing out a stellar 17 assists.  Paul Pierce chipped in 16 points, Glen Davis added 18 points and Leonard Powe knocked in 14 points off the bench.
