It all started with a tweet.

Just before tip, it became known that T.J. McConnell, after impressive cameos off the bench in games two and three, would start Game 4 in place of Robert Covington.

As the game went on, and McConnell did what we all knew he was capable of, the tweets kept coming.

In a team-high 39 minutes, McConnell poured in 19 points on 9-for-12 shooting with seven rebounds and five assists without a turnover. He did in Game 4 what he was able to do in the previous two games in smaller doses and the Internet, and Sixers fans all over, loved it.

Surely the Celtics will have to make some adjustments in Game 5 to minimize T.J.’s impact, but if the Sixers come all the way back from three games down, it could be because of a six-foot-two undrafted player out of Pittsburgh.

Good point.
