"IN RONDO WE TRUST"

Celtics Rule Kings, 99-81

I  wasn't able to follow the game tonight, but the Cs posted a second impressive win without Rondo.  Scoring was spread evenly across the team, but the key was defense.  Pierce and Garnett led the way, yet Pierce only played 31 minutes and Garnett played 28.  Pierce had 16 points and ten rebounds.  Garnett had nine points and five assists.  The Cs had one less rebound than the Kings.  Terry, Green and Bass all contributed 12 points each off the bench.  A 37 point second quarter put the Cs in control of the game, and this time, they didn't let up.


It was a great win for the Cs.  We seem to finally be seeing the team that we thought we'd be seeing;  tough as nails on defense, especially on the perimeter, and sharing the ball on offense.  Sully, however, only played a few minutes, having to leave the game with back spasms.  That is a big worry.


Great start to the post-Rondo era.

Very good start post-Rondo. Indeed worried about Sully. Good solid win, the Celtics didn't completely give back the lead.

To tell you the truth, I couldn't watch this game until the end. I only 'resisted' until the middle of the 3rd quarter. Honestly, seeing that dominance in the 2nd quarter and the way they all played, somehow showing how happy and free they, finally!, are without Rondo, it just made me sick.
I suddenly lost all passion for now and, despite their win, I can hardly watch Celtics these days.
And I am afraid that, the way Rondo got me to this team few years ago, no Rondo might get me away.
Rondo is the beauty of basketball, Rondo is the passion for the game, Rondo is magic and unique, he is the artist of nowadays basketball. Watching his teammates and other people enjoy his absence, is delusional.

Honestly, I feel confused over it, Cisco. These Cs are doing some of the things I wanted the Rondo team to be doing, and some of that not-doing we saw earlier in the season was Rondo's fault. But not all of it, I think, and to see these guys acting like the stern schoolmaster stopped rapping their knuckles and let them out for recess is pretty weird. They don't seem to feel like they bear any responsibility for the way things went off the rails.
