Not much from last nights game. But KG was solid on both sides of the ball last night, and he found his shot last night. Garnett shot 6/9 from the field for 17 points. You can't ask for much more from KG in a back-to-back . He truly gave another solid performance.
Bradley sparked the Celtics in his short 7 minute stint last night. The Celtics could have used him in the second half, but it didin't happen. Maybe Doc will got to him next time. I don't know if he would have impacted the game, but I thought it was worth a try.
Doc may have made a mistake by sitting Bradley, but going off on the team had to be done. I have never seen Doc so upset. He normally picks the team up by speaking to them about playing soft, or without passion. But yelling at them is a first on TV.
Turnovers killed this game from the start. Rondo eneded with five of them, and the Raptors used the fast break to set themselves apart. It seems to be one of the many stories about the Celtics. They let teams in a ball game because of slacking on defense.
The Celtics only had 18 assists, and for this team it spells loss. Rondo had 7 for the game, and Pierce followed with 5 for the game. The Celtics should have never played so poorly against the Raptors. This will be that one game you forget. That's what I hope for at least.
This one is all Rondo in the first half. Although his play picked up in he second half, overall it was a car crash. Their will be a lot said of Rondo, and I hope he can move on as a player, and as a person It won't get any easier for Rondo, and the Celtics.
Allen had the worst game maybe. He shot 3-8 for the game, and he couldn't do anything on the defensive end. You can't get epic games from Ray all the time.
