Celtics by the numbers: Pacers dominate C's on the boards

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 7, 2012 at 4:10 AM

The biggest number to discuss is the 25 points scored by the Celtics in the first half. Tied for worst in Celtics history with the 95' team.

  • I think everyone knows the Celtics lost the boards 47-36. The Celtics gave up 14 offensive rebounds. I have no clue how the Celtics fix this. I don't know what it is. KG was a great rebounder,and I think he should have enough skill to grab more. He's not the same KG,but come on Garnett only six rebounds.
  • The Celtics took care of the basketball with only 12 turnovers that's the number I want every game. No more than 12.
  • Pierce 3/17 isn't good. Ray should have taken more shots,and so should of KG,and Rondo. Rondo was in a nice groove,but Pierce didn't force it. A lot of those shots looked really good.
  • Jermiane had a monster four blocks last night. JO shot 1-3,and I think we should have used him more on offense. 
  • The Celtics didn't give up any fast break points,and that's pretty good against a young team like the Pacers.
  • The Celtics did hold the Pacers to 40% shooting,but the Celtics shot below their season average
  • The Celtics held Danny Granger to 3/14 from the field. .

There is no way Rondo should EVER EVER EVER go into halftime any lower than third on the team in FGA, nor should he ever go in with less than 4 FTA. It's that simple, in my opinion. I don't know why so many Celtic fans find it so hard to see that the best player on the team should be the one driving the offense. The thing is, this is about energy. It affects every other aspect of the game when the team is feeding off Rondo's energy.
