Rondo woke up this morning,and he decided to show up and play.Rondo was showing so much confidence that he was actually trying to draw contact from his defender. It's amazing when Rondo has games like these you know he can do it 9/10 times. I have said in the past it's art. Performances like this get me out of bed in the morning. Rondo makes the game look so easy. But yo know it's hard,and that's apart of his art.
KG give me some more of that please. Five games into the season,and Garnett finally find something. He had his first two dunks of the season. KG still didn't look 100% from last seasons KG,but much better.
The Wizards shot 28.2 percent (11-of-39) in the first half. And despite building a 17-point halftime cushion behind arguably their best 24 minutes of defense of the season, the Celtics tossed it in the trash in the third. The defense seems to be back,but until we play a title contender again. I will determine where the Celtics are on defense.
The Celtics did win the game,and they didn't lose the lead completely,but I always feel a little weird after the Celtics take a 20 point lead. The Celtics took care of business,but it's always a concern with the Celtics.
Another high turnover (16)game for the Celtics. Not going to work against the Bulls,and Heat of the world. I'm sure some of that was the bench right? No it was the starting unit. Pierce/KG/Rondo had three apiece. The Celtics need to take care of the basketball.
Bradley with some floor time,and nothing to show for it. Not even defensive hustle. Doc's giving him time. You can't say he's not. I have never been in love with Bradley. I knew something was wrong when Danny made comparisons to Joe Dumars.I'm just not seeing it yet.
The injury bug JO might be hurt short-term,or long-term at this point we don't know. My guess he sits out tomorrow against the Wizards. Let's hope this is nothing.
