|Chris Wilcox, PF 13 MIN | 2-2 FG | 0-0 FT | 3 REB | 0 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 4 PTS | 0
Chris Wilcox started, but committed two fouls early in the game. He had limited playing time and did not do much.
|Brandon Bass, PF 30 MIN | 5-7 FG | 3-3 FT | 2 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 3 BLK | 2 TO | 13 PTS | +5
Brandon Bass continues to fill in the holes when needed. He had an efficient shooting night and had a team-high three blocks. Bass is starting to look like the 2011-12 shooter Celtics fans were used to, so a few more solid scoring nights will keep his confidence going.
|Jeff Green, PF 38 MIN | 11-20 FG | 2-3 FT | 4 REB | 4 AST | 2 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 27 PTS | -2
Jeff Green with a game-high 27 points. How about this guy? Coming off the game-winner against the Cavaliers, he is showing the aggressiveness that Celtics fans want to see. In addition, he has scored double-digit points in each of his last 10 games, by far his longest streak as a Celtic. His 20 field goal attempts are also tied for his second-most in a game since he came to Boston.
|Paul Pierce, SF 38 MIN | 8-18 FG | 2-3 FT | 10 REB | 10 AST | 1 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 20 PTS | +28
While it was not the most efficient shooting night for the Captain, Paul Pierce still went for his ninth career regular season triple-double. The Celtics are now 9-0 in those games. Moreover, since 2007-08, Boston is 33-6 when Pierce has a regular season double-double.
|Avery Bradley, PG 26 MIN | 3-7 FG | 2-2 FT | 0 REB | 4 AST | 4 STL | 1 BLK | 2 TO | 8 PTS | +7
Fortunately, the Celtics did not need a big night from Avery Bradley, who has recently struggled from the field. Those four steals, which were one off his season-high, look relatively nice though. Bradley has been a mainstay on defense since he returned from his injury, so he just needs to keep that up and the shot will come.
|Shavlik Randolph, PF 22 MIN | 4-6 FG | 1-2 FT | 13 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 2 BLK | 0 TO | 9 PTS | +12
Now that was a Shav-Tastic performance from the 29-year-old North Carolina native! Coming into tonight, he had 14 rebounds per 36 minutes. Tonight, he bumped that up to 16. He became just the third Celtic reserve in almost 30 years to grab at least 13 rebounds in 22 or fewer minutes. His seven offensive rebounds were also the most by a Celtic off the bench in that little of playing time in over a decade. Thank you, Shavlik, for fighting off all those Hawks to get those extra offensive opportunities!
|Jordan Crawford, SG 21 MIN | 2-8 FG | 0-0 FT | 2 REB | 4 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 5 PTS | +2
Shooters got to shoot. However, this shooter can pass, too. Doc Rivers has praised Jordan Crawford for his strong passing skills, so continue to look for those in addition to his deadly outside jumper.
|Courtney Lee, SG 6 MIN | 0-0 FG | 2-2 FT | 1 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 2 PTS | -12
Very glad to have Courtney Lee back playing. Once he is fully healthy, he will be a huge asset to the Celtics defense.
|Terrence Williams, SG 15 MIN | 3-5 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 6 PTS | +10
Terrence Williams provided the Celtics with some good minutes. He had some solid, hard dunks as a part of the Celtics scoring run in second quarter.
|Jason Terry, SG 31 MIN | 7-10 FG | 5-6 FT | 1 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 24 PTS | +5
Jason Terry hit five three-pointers, tied for his most in a Celtics uniform. The other time he did that was the 5-of-14 performance in the triple-overtime game against the Nuggets. Friday against the Hawks he was much more efficient and it was arguably his best shooting performance in a while. The Celtics need this Terry for the playoffs.
It seemed like he pulled the right strings. The Celtics won the season series over the Hawks for the third consecutive season and for the fifth time in the last six years.
