I want our team to take seriously the game with the Bobcats, and they didn’t disappoint. We still came out of the gates a little bit slowly, but once we began playing, we kept going until the end.
As Sully said in an interview after the game, our defense in the last couple of game is really making the difference. The Bobcats shot 44% from the field, we rebounded the ball well and we took really good care of the ball, finishing with 11 turnovers.
Green found his consistency once again. His season is following exactly the path of Celtics season. He may play bad for a couple or more games, then he find his consistency for a good number of games before another couple of disappointing games, and so on. I like his stats from last night game: 13 points and 7 rebounds is what we need from him. He didn’t shot the ball well, but he hang in there. As Shawn said a this week, we’re not looking for someone that score 30 points a game in Green, we just need a consistent player. If Green is able to keep helping the team on both ends of the floor scoring a little more than ten points, and rebounding the ball (six of his seven rebounds were defensive rebounds), than he’s the player we’re looking for.
For the second game in a row, Bass had a really solid game, shooting 70% and finishing with 16 points and five rebounds. What I like most, is that 10 of those 16 points were in the second half, and 8 in the fourth quarter. Bass, together with Crawford, was the guy who made the Celtics comeback possible against Atlanta, and once again last night he came up big down the stretch.
While Bass shot the ball incredibly well, it was not a very good shooting night for Sullinger, who was still able to help with a solid game, who once again led the team in rebounding. Even last year, from the start, Sully has been able to rebound the ball incredibly well. He really seems to have a talent for knowing where the ball will be, but I also believe that part of this is because he always plays hard.
Crawford had another great game, with 21 points, 5 assist and four rebounds. He also took really good care of the ball, finishing with just two turnovers. I don’t’ talk a lot about him but I really like what he’s doing for our team. He’s another player that is being consistent since the beginning of the year. He doesn’t talk much, but he just keeps doing his job.
Last night we had the chance to see an amazing effort from our bench. Everyone of the guys that stepped onto the court was able to contribute to our victory. And everyone help in a different area.
The big scoring came from Wallace, who played 35 minutes scoring a team-high 17 points, to go with 4 rebounds and 3 assists. He played a very good all around game, adding also a couple of steal and a block, with just one turnover. After the game he wanted to go in and play aggressive, because that’s the only way he knows. And I’m glad he was able to do that last night. I want him to keep playing aggressive. Everyone of the guys needs to leave it all on the court. Lee added 11 points in 15 minutes shooting the ball pretty well, while Humphries helped grabbing 5 rebounds.
What amazed me looking at the box score where the 8 assists and 3 steals from Pressey. He scored just two points, but he took just a couple of shots. It’s amazing!! From what I could see from Phil numbers, he’s one of those point guards that I really like. He’s not another shooting guard trapped in a point guard body. He’s a point guard: the player that bring the ball up and dishes the ball. I LOVE IT!!
Now, back home with a winning streak alive!!
Let’s go Celtics!!
