Now That’s Teamwork

Chuck - Red's Army December 20, 2009 Uncategorized 10 Comments on Now That’s Teamwork

How much fun was that first half? Okay… I cannot tell a lie. I was addicted to that Steelers game. My plan to coax John into writing the postgame report was thwarted when he so selfishly decided to leave his home to watch the game. But, like the Celtics, we executed perfect teamwork to get the job done (He texted me some of the information below).

To the game…

The Celtics mauled the Wolves tonight, 122-104. They lead by 15 after one, 22 at the half and coasted from there (Yes, I know Doc had to put the starters back into the game in the 4th after the lead was cut to 9, but they were all back on the bench in 3 minutes).

The passing in the first half was awesome. The Cs had 19 assists on 25 baskets. Rondo had a variety of incredible bounce passes. Check our Twitter page for the gushing.

The play of year (:35 seconds into the video highlights) came in the 2nd quarter. Eddie House with the steal and tip to himself, behind the back to Tony Allen who finished with a dynamic dunk on Corey Brewer.

Paul Pierce awoke from his slumber – 29 points, 6-6 3FG, 7 rebounds
Maestro Rajon Rondo had 13 points, 15 assists and 3 steals.
Tony Allen had 15 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists.

    Tony Allen was great. One good decision after another. Excellent D. Energy and enthusiasm galore. All around player of the game.
    Cs came out with guns blazing in Q1 and Q2, as expected after Friday’s horror show. But then, incredibly, they AGAIN came out with low energy in Q3 (what is WITH those guys??) So Doc wisely inserted TA again to save the day. And again, he did a great job. Gotta love that kid, the way he played tonight.
    Sheed was on his best behavior in this game. I believe they talked to him, and he listened. I think there’s hope now that his worst days are over… that he has put away his childish antics. If so, Friday’s loss was WELL worth it. Now, December, is when these lessons need to be learned.
    Refs were disgusting, again, in their incompetence. In the end, refs must be viewed as part of the natural order. They stink… but they happen, like manure happens. Just gotta deal with them. The Cs did a good job of that tonight. Good game, all around.

    There was also only two refs, so you gotta cut ’em some slack.

    Tony Allen has the potential to be a better wing than James Posey was during the championsip run. He’s every bit the defender, and than some, and what he lacks in a three point shot, he more than makes up for in his playmaking, slashing, and scoring abilities. Lets hope he can keep it up (and stay healthy!).

    I saw Rajon get SLAMMED to the ground right in front of one of those two refs… you probably remember it, in Q4… Rajon was really stunned, stayed down through the following play. Ref was looking right at him too. No whistle. Wow. Can’t blame that on the absent ref. And there was a lot more… mostly errors of Commission, not Omission.
    Oh well… no point in making a big deal out of it. It sucks, but it is what it is.

    The only team I can think that likes the refs are the Lakers. LOL

  • KY Celts fan

    isn’t there always supposed to be a fourth official waiting in the wings if something freak like this happens? i swear, i remember hearing that somewhere.

  • KY Celts fan

    Should we be rethinking TA? or is just getting our hopes up before he starts making bonehead moves again? He’s the guy you’re afraid to love because he’s broken your heart so many times.

  • DRJ

    Yes, and that backup guy also got delayed.

  • JD

    Yeah, that’s why I said “potential to be better than James Posey,” cuz your right, he always seems to disappoint in the end. But, Doc said it before the pregame interview, as long as he plays good defense and doesn’t try to do too much on offense, he’s an effective player. Lately, he’s been doing both. Hopefully he can keep his head on his shoulders and stay healthy (knock on wood).

    News from the “Say it ain’t so” front:
    Key quote: “…the (Nate) Robinson camp tells there’s one place the former slam-dunk champion would truly like to land if a trade can be worked out: Boston.”
    I don’t like this one bit. Stay away, Danny, stay away.
