One ominous sign tonight was that Green and Lee seemed fade some tonight once again. It's going to be awfully tough for us if those guys need to have the ball in their hands a lot in order to be productive. This game was a tough fight, with the Wolves holding a slight upper hand, and appearing to have the momentum, when the Cs pulled away late in the third and early in the fourth, led by a scoring push by the normally bashful Rondo. The Cs also came on strong on the boards late, and held the Wolves' scoring down, after giving up 30 in the first quarter. The new Big Four all had strong games, but Rondo's scoring was the difference, mostly on Js, and a few nifty layups. Minnesota is a tough team, so this was a nice win. 104-94 is probably the ideal Celtics score this season.
Welcome back, Rondo!
