Boston Celtics 103 Final

Recap | Box Score

105 Toronto Raptors
Brandon Bass, PF 23 MIN | 3-5 FG | 2-2 FT | 4 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 8 PTS | -13
Still wants to sim to the end, and I still don’t blame him.

Jeff Green, SF 30 MIN | 7-14 FG | 0-0 FT | 4 REB | 2 AST | 1 STL | 1 BLK | 3 TO | 16 PTS | -5
It wasn’t 30 plus on 15 or fewer shots, and it wasn’t two points on 14 shots. Green was neither great nor terrible. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO.

Kris Humphries, C 19 MIN | 3-6 FG | 2-2 FT | 4 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 2 TO | 8 PTS | +4
Jonas Valanciunas is not an easy match-up for a power forward.

Rajon Rondo, PG 33 MIN | 5-8 FG | 1-2 FT | 5 REB | 8 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 11 PTS | -14
Rondo has shot 37 percent for the season so far, so even though he didn’t knock down a 3-pointer, it’s good to see him well over 50 percent. He also made several really nice passes, to no one’s surprise.

Avery Bradley, PG 23 MIN | 3-7 FG | 4-4 FT | 2 REB | 0 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 11 PTS | -5
Bradley was fine on the offensive end, but he gets docked a bit for DeMar DeRozan’s offensive explosion.

Chris Johnson, SF 18 MIN | 2-3 FG | 2-2 FT | 2 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 6 PTS | +5
I don’t have strong feelings either way. Sorry Chris.

Jared Sullinger, C 34 MIN | 4-12 FG | 2-4 FT | 9 REB | 2 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 11 PTS | -2
Mediocre shooting night, probably too many 3-pointers, but lots of rebounds. There’s so much potential here, and I’m not totally sure how the Celtics can best harness it offensively.

Kelly Olynyk, C 20 MIN | 4-6 FG | 2-2 FT | 2 REB | 0 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 10 PTS | +7
For a slow, ground-bound center, Olynyk is a ridiculous amount of fun to watch in transition.

Phil Pressey, PG 13 MIN | 1-2 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 5 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 2 PTS | +11
More than twice as many assists as points? Maybe Rondo is teaching Pressey a little too well.

Jerryd Bayless, PG 26 MIN | 8-13 FG | 2-2 FT | 1 REB | 3 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 20 PTS | +2
Bayless seems to be hell-bent on shooting Boston out of the bottom four. Get that paycheck, Jerryd. You know, just not at the expense of Dante Exum.

    Olynyk is slow? :p
    Maybe compared to forwards/guards, but I’m pretty sure he’s one of the most speedy 7 footers in the league.
