Not sure where it came from, but Sasha played his best game Monday night. He was all over the floor. In the passing lanes, grabbing steals, and putting the ball in for an easy hoop. Sasha was playing a solid defensive game. He was all over Howard, and blocking a couple of shots. I have never seen Sasha play with so much speed, and urgency. Will we see it again? I hope so, but his time will go down again once Ray, and Pietrus return for the C's. So what do you think. Will Sasha get more playing time? Will he impact the Celtics in another game this season?
"Sasha was great," said Rivers. "I got on him one time because he didn’t shoot. When he took that next jump shot, the whole team sorta said, ‘Please go in.’ Because I had just yelled at him to take it, and really, it freed him up [when he made it]. Sasha can shoot. He had just missed one, then he drove and traveled the next time instead of shooting. So he can shoot the ball, it’s good.
"Defensively, he’s terrific."
