|Jeff Green, PF 36 MIN | 10-17 FG | 4-4 FT | 8 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 25 PTS | -10
Playing the defacto Paul Pierce role, Green showed up and showed the rim who’s boss. He missed a ton of threes, but I don’t remember any of them being bad shots.
|Brandon Bass, PF 34 MIN | 6-9 FG | 5-5 FT | 9 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 17 PTS | -5
Bass is continuing to completely ball out. He’s producing on the offensive end and playing fearless man defense, guarding anyone who comes in his path. I especially like the way he would pick up the ball handler in transition if he was the closest man. Stopping the ball is a major priority against the Heat.
|Avery Bradley, PG 34 MIN | 3-9 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 2 AST | 4 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 7 PTS | -8
Shooting is still a major concern with this kid. It’s getting scarier and scarier to type that.
|Courtney Lee, SG 32 MIN | 8-16 FG | 0-0 FT | 3 REB | 2 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 18 PTS | -10
Hey, Courtney Lee! Where you been all season?!
It’s not likely that he’ll get 16 field gold attempts when the roster is fully healthy, but it was still nice to see him knock them down when given the opportunity. It would have been nicer if he had knocked down a few more corner threes late in the game but c’est la vie.
|Jordan Crawford, SG 36 MIN | 7-15 FG | 4-4 FT | 4 REB | 2 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 4 TO | 20 PTS | -9
Crawford was on a mission to score 40 tonight. He got halfway there. I love watching Crawford in game’s that don’t matter. Watching Crawford in any other situation makes me nervous.
|Shavlik Randolph, PF 10 MIN | 0-1 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 0 PTS | -4
C’mon Shavy, you’re more savvy than that.
|D.J. White, PF 1 MIN | 0-0 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 0 PTS | +4
Anyone else want White to play 48 minute today?
|Chris Wilcox, PF 11 MIN | 1-1 FG | 0-0 FT | 5 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 0 TO | 2 PTS | +10
Wilcox was active but was he effective?
|Terrence Williams, SG 17 MIN | 3-8 FG | 0-0 FT | 2 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 6 PTS | -2
I wanted Williams to play REALLY well with Pierce and Garnett out. I also wanted to see if he could use his muscle against LeBron James considering they’re both huge dudes. James makes Williams look like a highschooler.
|Jason Terry, SG 28 MIN | 3-9 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 3 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 4 TO | 6 PTS | -6
He needs to play better if the C’s have any shot of getting out of the first round.
Doc Rivers gets an A for not coaching his team into a situation where the C’s would be fighting for the 8th seed right now and Paul Pierce would tear his achilles tendon in the process.
One Thing We Saw
- Full Disclosure: I had to watch this game at a bar (Martyr!) with no sound so overall themes and team defense was hard to evaluate.
