Warning: This is a mail-in blog job. I just couldn't get into this game. Think Celtics vs Bobcats from a few weeks ago.
Not sure how much credit to give the Celtics defense, but Philadelphia's offense was brutal in the second half. They managed just 32 points. Every time I looked up (from my intense text conversation with a friend regarding my top 5 – more on that later), they were throwing the ball out of bounds or jacking up airballs.
Rajon Rondo (16 points, 13 assists, 4 rebounds in 32 minutes) is finding his groove again. The Celtics offense was efficient – 52% FG and 29 assists.
Jermaine O'Neal (9 points, 3 rebounds) is looking more comfortable, too
A balanced effort from the bench. Delonte, Nads, Jeff Green and Baby contributed 29 points. In his first game since talking about improving his rebounding, Green led the team with 7 boards. He also had one spectacular block to close out the game.
Kevin Garnett played only 24 minutes.
For those who need to know, my top 5 – Kim Kardashian, Natalie Portman (I'm an intellectual), Minka Kelly, Marissa Miller and a chick to be named later.
