50/82: Celtics-Sixers Grades



Boston Celtics 114 Final

Recap | Box Score

108 Philadelphia 76ers
Brandon Bass, PF 36 MIN | 7-10 FG | 4-4 FT | 6 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 18 PTS | +10
Look at that statline and tell me what more we should expect from Brandon Bass.

Jeff Green, SF 35 MIN | 11-18 FG | 9-12 FT | 8 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 2 BLK | 3 TO | 36 PTS | +10
OKAY JEFF, WE SEE YOU. Green’s aggressive 36 points, eight boards and incredibly efficient shooting were a nice change from the performance we’ve begun to expect from him. And just in time for the trade deadline!

Jared Sullinger, C 35 MIN | 6-11 FG | 5-7 FT | 10 REB | 5 AST | 1 STL | 4 BLK | 2 TO | 19 PTS | +10
Any other day, Jared Sullinger gets an A+ for a double-double with four blocked shots and 2-for-3 3-point shooting. Tonight? Sorry Jared, Jeff set the curve too high.

Rajon Rondo, PG 32 MIN | 4-8 FG | 0-0 FT | 9 REB | 11 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 8 PTS | +16
Still not back to full athleticism and confidence in his legs and STILL running a team’s offense more effectively than most point guards in the league. He was a field goal and a rebound away from a triple double.

Avery Bradley, PG 26 MIN | 6-15 FG | 2-2 FT | 2 REB | 1 AST | 3 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 14 PTS | +10
After a 12-point first quarter, Bradley looked poised for an “A” performance, which would have marked the first time this season all five starters got top marks. Alas, his hot shooting didn’t continue. But if production like this continues around him, Boston won’t need Bradley to be a top offensive contributor much longer. This is a good thing.

Chris Johnson, SF
3 MIN | 0-1 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 0 PTS | 0
Three minutes off the bench probably spelled the end of Johnson’s career in Boston. It’s been a fun ride, Chris.

Gerald Wallace, SF 21 MIN | 2-3 FG | 0-2 FT | 3 REB | 0 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 4 PTS | -9
A very typical Wallace performance (the “C” range in grades) gets a bump for his clutch late rebound and putback.

Kelly Olynyk, C 12 MIN | 0-1 FG | 1-2 FT | 2 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 1 PTS | -4
I’m giving Olynyk an awful grade for that time he fouled Spencer Hawes on the perimeter as the shot clocking was blaring. Come on, Kelly.

Kris Humphries, C 13 MIN | 1-5 FG | 1-2 FT | 7 REB | 1 AST | 1 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 3 PTS | -4
“Oh Chris, you were out there?” /checks statline “Yep, you were. Good game, big fella.” /pats butt

Jerryd Bayless, PG 27 MIN | 4-12 FG | 2-2 FT | 1 REB | 5 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 11 PTS | -9
His ball-handling is such an absurd improvement over Courtney Lee’s. Remember that when you see Memphis fans crowing over Lee’s production for them. Boston just didn’t need him anymore.

Three Things We Saw

  1. If you asked a Celtics fan about Jeff Green before the season, the phrase “His alley-oops when Rondo comes back are going to be ridiculous!” would inevitably come up. Sure enough, in the first quarter, Rondo served up a pass to Green which he crammed through the rim at an awkward angle. It wasn’t a perfect pass, but perfect passes rarely make for good lobs, so let’s just assume Rondo intentionally made it difficult for our entertainment.
  2. Not one single iota of defense was played tonight. The Celtics scored at will. The only reason the Sixers didn’t score at will is because they suck at scoring. It was messy, frantic (as Sixers games are wont to be) and really entertaining at times, simply because of the production from Green, Sully and Rondo.
  3. Brian told the anti-tank crowd earlier to chill out, and he’s right. For one thing, the Celtics still have an awful record and still will not SNIFF the playoffs. For another thing, these teams will meet two more times this season. If they are neck and neck for a top seed in the lottery, those games are going to be a special kind of awful.

    JG8’s great games are always entertaining. He blows by defenders and lays it in like LeBron. He hits 3’s like Pierce in his prime during his own hot games.

    This was against the worst defense in the league though so I’m not sure how excited to get.

    Also watch Wiggins play with Kansas. He feels -very- Jeff Greeny. Same skillset and moves, maybe faster and weaker.
