Wanna know how sad the @nba East playoffs is? A team down 2 possessions at the end of a game is running plays for Gigi Datome.

Brian Robb

Absolutely fitting that Gigi got to take that shot. Garden crowd would have literally exploded if he hit it.

Andrew Perna

The season rode on Gigi.

Massimo Oriani

Forse stiamo vedendo l'ultimo minuto della carriera Nba di @Gigi Datome Se così fosse, avrebbe meritato molto di più. Grande Gigione!

Jared Weiss

Gigi time ensures the three-point barrage we’re about to witness will be fun at least.

Adam Himmelsbach

Can't say I expected to see Gerald Wallace, Phil Pressey and Gigi Datome play in Game 4 but hey it's the playoffs.

Andrew Perna

Only one player has a positive +/- for the #Celtics in a 59-42 game. Gig Datome +3. (@adamjones985)

Simone Sandri

Entra Datome a 2'14'' dal riposo

Scott Souza

Gigi Datome is 12th #Celtics player to enter game in first half ... Phil Pressey, start warming up in the bullpen.

Jay King

Stevens has tried everything but Gigi: Gerald Wallace, Bradley-Smart-Thomas lineup and even a timeout after 1:38.

Adam Himmelsbach

Gigi Datome last night: "We must keep playing w/pride for sure Sunday, because I think we deserve to win 1 game. We are so close every time"

Andrew Perna

Stevens give Datome the veteran nod for poise in discussing his minutes. His shooting gave them 2 points.

Scott Souza

#Celtics coach Brad Stevens praised Gigi Datome's poise tonight after criticizing that aspect of team as a whole.

Chris Fedor

Wait...Bostonians call this Luigi dude "Gigi" for short? I just can't....

Andrew Perna

Love Stevens, but 10 minutes for Gigi in a must-win is questionable.

Jason Lloyd

Now Thompson and a man named Gigi chirping at each other. This game has it all, including a man named Gigi

Abby Chin

Gi-Gi chants breakout here! Datome looking to make an impact. #CelticsTalk

Adam Himmelsbach

Gigi Datome getting feisty with Tristan Thompson, taking the ball from him after the whistle. Evan Turner pats his head, crowd loves it.

Brian Robb

Gigi won't be pushed around!

Jay King

Gigi getting feisty now.

Jeff Goodman

Datome to Jerebko. Tell me you didn't think you'd be hearing that in the NBA Playoffs.

Jay King

Impossible to stop James with Datome as a help defender. twitter.com/bballbreakdown…

Scott Souza

Let's just say the Gigi Datome Defensive Experiment did not work. ... LeBron in takeover mode with the #Cavaliers up 88-78 w/ 8:57 left.

Scott Souza

Gigi Datome back to scorer's table at end of third quarter. So it appears he will start fourth. When he does, #Celtics will be down 84-76.

Scott Souza

False alarm: Brad Stevens calls Gigi back to bench following turnover. Sorry to get you guys all worked up for nothing.

Scott Souza

Gigi Datome will soon be back in for #Celtics with LeBron James on the bench.

Vince Cellini

Watching Luigi Datome made me think of several Luigis from my old neighborhood, all much shorter of course. Much shorter #CAVSvCELTICS

Jessica Camerato

In 2010 Luigi Datome visited TD Garden for the NBA Finals as a fan. Tonight, he is here to play in the postseason. bit.ly/1CayEvw

Ben Rohrbach

The IT4-Crowder-Gigi-Kelly-Jerebko lineup that finished the first quarter played six minutes together during the regular season.

Brian Robb

Literally no one within 15 feet of Gigi on that drive. Looked like he had a forcefield around him.

Andrew Perna

That Gigi drive to the rim was very Bartolo Colon.

Jared Weiss

Gigi with some Italian off the glass.

Vincent Ellis

Gigi being aggressive. Put it on the floor and throws up a running one-handed, push shot that almost falls.

Scott Souza

Interesting, at least for now, Jared Sullinger, Jonas Jerebko and Gigi Datome have all played for #Celtics ahead of Kelly Olynyk in Game 3.

Jay King

Gigi's gonna favorite this one later and get his revenge in this life or another. twitter.com/Baron_Davis/st…

Vincent Ellis

Just wrong to be talking about Gigi like that. twitter.com/Baron_Davis/st…

Chris Forsberg

Playoff Gigi! Wonder if Ty Lue will recognize him this time … bit.ly/1DVrkTB

Scott Souza

#Celtics Brad Stevens talking advantage of LeBron James on bench to get Gigi Datome his first run of series. Hard matchup if James in game.

Howard Beck

Gigi Datome's hairdo-beard combo is artwork. His head should be in the Smithsonian.

Abby Chin

Look out! Gigi Datome check in for the #Celtics and gets a nice ovation. Coach Stevens said he was expanding the rotation. #CelticsTalk

Brian Robb

Gigi with his first meaningful minutes of the series here.

Jessica Camerato

Gigi Datome gets some first quarter playing time.

Scott Souza

#Celtics forward Gigi Datome heads to scorer's table. ... So that's a new one this series.

Jay King

And here comes Gigi. Game over.

Chris Forsberg

Kid in a Gigi Datome jersey!? It must be playoff time in Boston. http://t.co/TUiQOV2pou

Tom Halzack

Stevens will go deeper in bench? Sounds like we may see Gigi.
