The Celtics won a back-to-back. I know it was the Wizards,but you also know the Celtics could have easily lost tonight. The Celtics stayed focused,and alert. The big three looked sharp. Pierce had his best game so far in his third game back,and Ray had one of his best shooting games in the short season. He's had many brilliant games so far this season. KG didn't score 24 points,but he was active passing the ball,and we could have had a few more rebounds from Garnett,but he looked solid out there. With the slow start for the Celtics. I look at one game at a time,and I hope they don't jump ahead.
Greg Stiemsma was another bright spot of course. Can he give the Celtics the same kind of game again? I think he has it in him to do so. It looked natural for him,and that's what I see,and that's what I want to see from him. Greg will be needed in this long NBA season.
I decided to put Bradley above the ugly. He listened to Paul,and he played defense. It wasn't against Wall,but he still played good defense,but he can't score,and he's careless with the ball. He's not great on defense overall,but he's good. When Pietrus hits the lineup, Bradley will be long gone in the rotation.
I love the Celtics ball movement,but the turnovers must stop. Boston is number seven in the league with over 16 a game. But Miami is also tied with the Celtics with the same amount per game. So is it the end of the world? No,but the Celtics should take care of the ball,and it concerns me.
