C’s smother Bobcats

Smother

The Celtics didn't play a particularly great game, but their defense just flat out smothered the Charlotte.

The result… a slow, painful, 31 point death.

Just look at the quarter by quarter breakdown:  20-16 C's in the first.  22-16 in the second.  22-15 in the third.  29-15 in the fourth.  Final score: 93-62. 

The C's didn't even shoot 44%.  They turned it over 18 times (6 by Rondo… but he had 5 steals).  BUT they forced Charlotte to shoot 33.8% (1 of 11 from 3), they forced 21 turovers, and they blocked 10 shots.  The C's outrebounded Charlotte by 10 and out-assisted them 21-17.  They held Gerald Wallace to 2-15 shooting.  They held DJ Augestin scoreless in 32 minutes (he only had 1 assist and 4 turnovers).  

Ray and Baby had 16 each to lead the C's.  Pierce (8 pts, 1-9 shooting) was off.  Rondo didn't play all that great.  It was generally a blah game that saw the C's just hold steady while slowly putting more and more distance between them and their opponents.

    Very satisfying win. This team is going to be unbeatable when all our guys are back. Look out Lakers.

    REALLY impressed with the D today. 10 blocks, and Quis & Pierce hold the ‘Cats biggest weapon (Wallace) to 9 points on 2 of 15. And Marquis continues to impress with his defense. 3 steals and just all-around hustle. 3 sweet days of rest for these guys and then what should be a very fun night at a surely sold-out MSG vs the red-hot (I know-it’s crazy) Knicks! Bask in this streak folks! You never know when it’ll be this good again!!

    A thorough ass-whipping once the C’s decided to…
    KWAPT is right, that Knick game should be intense, Amare has been blowing up, and as we all know, KG loves to shut him down.

  • BRADinLA

    Hope we have Shaq back for the Knick game or we could be in trouble but I’m hoping we stretch the streak to 11!

    44 percent shooting and still a blowout? impressive if you ask me, depleted roster, if anybody have any questions about the C’s winning it all this year, i think we have our answer… These Celtics arevery impressive to me so far… the best i’ve seen them in all my time! But i still wanna see Von more, though he had a solid game tonight! 10 in a row now lets keep it going! ”its all about 18”
