Enemy Chatter: The Celtics made a lot of shots

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Minnesota.

“They were making a lot of shots,” Wolves coach Rick Adelman said. “I can’t tell you [what went wrong] until I look at it, but I thought we were playing well. But in the second half they took control.”

Blame one man: Rajon Rondo.

The 32 points were the most by a Wolves opponent in the third quarter this season. But the Celtics also outrebounded the Wolves and had a 15-9 edge on points off turnovers.

“They just scored. A lot,” guard J.J. Barea said. “They just did a good job of hitting open shots. Basically, they were more aggressive in every aspect of the game.”

Fairly simple analysis. The Celtics won last night’s game because of their offense and Rajon Rondo played a big role.

Are the Celtics really an offense-oriented team, as ESPN blogger Zach Harper suggests?

I wouldn’t go that far. While their defensive stats have slipped to the middle of the pack, their offensive numbers also lie there.

    I know we need a center to replace darko and the pickings are slim. But what about eddy curry ( just a suggestion, don’t kill me) I’d rather eddy curry than dampeier

    time to trade rondo while his value is high, pick up a talented center and maybe draft picks to rebuild for the post big 3 era
