Back on Track: Celtics 94, NETS 82

 

ESPN Box Score

Doling out individual grades seems really unnecessary for a couple of reasons. A lot of Celtics had pretty good games statistically, but they didn’t do many things differently than last night. The biggest difference is that the Celtics actually made their jump shots. It’s not as if the C’s had some renaissance and attacked the basket. They had a few sweet high low plays where Brandon Bass took advantage of Gerald Green guarding him but that was about it. It’s not as if Bass is going to have someone his height and far slighter guarding him every night. Coupled with their ability to splash open jumpers, the Celtics put forth just the right amount of effort on the defensive end and the glass to put the NETS away early.

Despite their the win, it’s important to remember that the Celtics played the NETS tonight. They played the NETS without Gerald Wallace, Brook Lopez, and an off-night from Deron Williams. The Celtics should have won in Toronto the same way they won tonight, which makes last night’s loss all the more frustrating but c’est la vie.

It was nice to see Gerald Green become a mature player. He doesn’t showboat anymore. He doesn’t feel like he deserves anything. He’s just putting his head down and going to work. I even fist pumped when he hit the three to close the first half. Oh and that dunk was SWEET! BUT to those who say the Celtics should have held on to him, please keep in mind that this would have been his sixth year in the league. It would have been six frustrating years before he could get 15 points off the bench on a bad team.

On a personal level, the best part of tonight was finding out that one of Damion James’ middle names (yes, he has two) is “Williams”, which means that there have been five people to have played for the NETS this season with the name “Williams”.

Yeah, it was one of those games. Let’s hope Pierce’s foot is okay.

    Have the Celtics clinched a playoff spot with the Bucks loss?

    I still think it was more chaotic when we (briefly) had Tony Allen, Ray Allen, and Allan Ray.

    Why some of you guys still knocking on Rondo anyway? This team as it currently consists is built for a distributing point guard. Just enjoy the ride we are on right now. No one has seen how Rondo will play with strictly younger fellas who will run the floor with him consistently. Rondo is playing the best type of game he can with this team as it is built.

    • yeah

      At first I thought you said "disturbing point guard." And that…. that was actually still pretty accurate, cool complement to Rondo

    Playoff spot clinched, WE ARE ALL RONDOS!

    But seriously, right now I can say I'm satisfied with my team. It's a pleasure to see rookies and new faces (Bradley and Stiemsma respectively) rising up and playing a good basketball. Pietrus and Bass were also nice upgrades to this team. But the best part of this whole scenario is to see veterans like Ray Allen sharing their chairs, no pride involved, just teamwork and a desire to do anything possible to reach the goal.

    I'm in love with this team.

    Eh, they seemed a little more active on the boards than vs. the Raps. But I only watched a half of each game, so I might not have seen the full story.
