Celtics Player Review: Brian Scalabrine

SCALLLL!!

The chants for the redhead never stop when Brian Scalabrine comes into a game. This season proved no different as Scalabrine continued to be a fan favorite despite his lackluster playing skills. However, Scal proved his worth in the playoffs this season and became a solid backup for the very depleted Celtics bench.

Scalabrine had slightly better numbers than last year for the Celtics during the regular season. He was limited to just 39 games this season though due to two concussions that happened close to each other. Scal averaged 3.5 points, 1.3 rebounds, 0.5 assists per game during the regular season.

Scal really had an impact in the playoffs for the Celtics and was able to hit some clutch shots and provide great minutes when his team really needed him. During the playoffs, Scal averaged 5.1 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 1 assist per game. He also averaged 20.5 minutes per game in the playoffs compared to his 14.4 minutes per game during the regular season.

Brian Scalabrine turned some heads in the playoffs with not only his ridiculous head band (that he wore due to his previous concussions), but also with his great play. He even made myself more of a fan of the red headed wonder for the Celtics.

Expect Scalabrine back again next year filling his typical role of a slightly bigger guy that can hit a three pointer every once in a while, and also expect to see more giant Scal-heads in the crowd, and the extremely popular chants of “SCALLL!!”
