Antoine Walker's Rookie Campaign
The final Celtic minute was placed mainly in the hands of rookie Antoine Walker, who got an education if not vindication. Walker had key plays at both ends of the court, committing a big foul and missing the C's final chance at the hoop.
Trying to crowd Ellis, Walker pushed through Johnson's pick and sent the latter to the line with 54.5 seconds left. Coach M.L. Carr was not pleased with his prodigy.
"No, Antoine, no," Carr shouted from the sideline. "You want to make them score while the clock is running. You just gave them two points."
