I have mentioned it already, and of course it's Avery Bradley with his career best 23 points. He was making every single shot in the early going, and Rondo connected with Bradley. They ran the floor like brothers, or like teammates playing together for ten years. Bradley was the difference maker last night, and I didn't see it going down that way, but I have my wish now.
27-12 lead at the end of the first quarter. Build off of that guys, and we can do some great things. The defense, the offense, and the rebounding was on point.
Lost in the brillance of Bradley was the brillance of Greg Stiemsma. He put in 10 points, and 7 boards. He forced the Wizards all night to take bad shots. If we get this more often. Then the Celtics are fine.
Losing a big lead once again. The Celtics did put them out for good in the 4th. The Wizards pulled within 8 points, and that was all she wrote after that for the Wizards. They battled between a 12 point, and 18 point lead for the rest of the night against the Celtics.
Clean up the turnovers once again Celtics 15 for the game is too high even though it's their season average.
The Celtics lost the glass again 45-39. Not bad, but the offensive glass was awful The Celtics lost that 16-2. It was the biggest reason the Wizards stayed in the game.The rookie Kevin Seraphin killed the Celtics with 7 for the game.
The Wizards had 17 more shots than the Celtics. That's from lack of rebounds by the Celtics. If the Wizards hit most of those shots from second chance points. We could be talking about something much worse. A Celtics loss.
