Boston Celtics 97 Final
Recap | Box Score
105 Atlanta Hawks
Brandon Bass, PF 33 MIN | 3-7 FG | 0-0 FT | 3 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 6 PTS | -8


Two somewhat big baskets for Bass as Boston was pushing its lead out in the fourth quarter, but not much else.

Jeff Green, SF 36 MIN | 5-15 FG | 1-2 FT | 6 REB | 3 AST | 0 STL | 2 BLK | 3 TO | 13 PTS | -6


Boy, Jeff’s two made 3-pointers seemed to speak a lot louder than all of his misses, even though he missed more than three times as many as he made. I didn’t even realize he was shooting so inefficiently until I saw his box score postgame.

Jared Sullinger, C 37 MIN | 6-15 FG | 2-2 FT | 11 REB | 2 AST | 1 STL | 1 BLK | 2 TO | 15 PTS | -8


Inefficient shooting lines aside, Sullinger scrapped like crazy.

Rajon Rondo, PG 41 MIN | 8-15 FG | 1-3 FT | 4 REB | 12 AST | 3 STL | 0 BLK | 5 TO | 19 PTS | -9


Rondo also scrapped like crazy, but he shooting very efficiently. It was easy to see how badly he wanted to spoil things for Atlanta, and it was a little heartbreaking to see him as time wound down (see the screen cap above) and it became clear that Boston had allowed another lead to slip away. I’m sure Rondo thought his return would be enough to vault Boston into playoff contention. Instead, they are slipping further and further out. Is that Rondo’s fault? Of course not. But I would imagine this has all been extremely discouraging for him.

Avery Bradley, PG 35 MIN | 8-16 FG | 4-4 FT | 4 REB | 2 AST | 3 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 24 PTS | -5


I want to give Bradley an A, but his late-game execution was so bad. Very confident, which was good, but so bad.

Chris Johnson, SF 14 MIN | 3-6 FG | 3-3 FT | 1 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 10 PTS | +8


Chris Johnson probably won’t ever be spectacular, but he’s so clearly an NBA player. Reminder: Boston has him locked up through 2017 (!!!!) at no more than $1.1 million if they decide to pick up his options, and they absolutely should. That’s such an incredible steal.

Kelly Olynyk, C 15 MIN | 2-5 FG | 0-0 FT | 9 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 5 PTS | +1


For those interested, Olynyk grabbed 21.5 rebounds per 36 minutes tonight.

Joel Anthony, C 4 MIN | 0-0 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 0 PTS | -3


Anthony did not record a single stat, but he DID have a -3 in plus/minus. So that means..absolutely nothing. Single-game plus/minus is virtually meaningless. Going to stick with incomplete on this one.

Phil Pressey, PG 4 MIN | 0-0 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 0 PTS | -3


I honestly wouldn’t have noticed Pressey in the game if Danny hadn’t mentioned it on the broadcast.

Jerryd Bayless, PG 21 MIN | 2-5 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 5 PTS | -7


Not one of Bayless’ better games, but he didn’t really hurt anything either.
