The Celtics assigned Gabe Pruitt to the D-League on Friday and just barely had time to make the team flight to Anaheim for their game against the Anaheim Arsenal. Gabe Pruitt was the star of the game, scoring a game high 31 points, including the game-winning bucket with 3.9 second to go as the Utah Flash won the first game in Flash franchise history, 110-109.
"I came here to play, but I'm already a little sore because it's been a while since I've been up and down like that," said Pruitt, who played 37 minutes in his Flash debut. "I was feeling that last one (game-winner) though. They had been gambling all night and they did it again and gave me the shot I wanted."
Pruitt finished the game with 31 points, 3 rebounds, 8 assists, 1 steal and 1 blocked shot along with only 2 turnovers in 40 minutes of play. Pruitt will be a very suitable back up for Rondo if he keeps playing like that.
Fellow Celtic, Brandon Wallace also played will finishing with 14 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals and 1 block in 39 minutes.
