Gerald Wallace should have nothing but praise for his teammates tonight because they busted their asses in Miami. The undermanned Celtics lost the game (93-86) but won our hearts with their effort.
The newly signed Chris Johnson had 11 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 steal in 25 minutes. He was the only Celtic with a positive +/- (+7). Is there any way the C’s can divert some of Keith Bogans’ money to Johnson? He deserves it.
Kris Humphries (14 points, 13 rebounds) doesn’t quit on any play. Jared Sullinger (13 points, 12 rebounds) also worked his ass off under the boards.
Avery Bradley turned his ankle in the first half and did not return. The injury must be somewhat serious because Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting the Celtics will sign Vander Blue to a 10 day contract. Danny Ainge must be really pissed at Bogans if he’s going to the D-league in an emergency situation.
Rajon Rondo had a rough shooting night. He was 0-8 from the floor and 1-4 from the free throw line.
LeBron James blows the dunk
- Rondo was 1-4 FT while the rest of the team was 14-14
- Boston had 17 offensive rebounds
- The Celtics shot 5-27 3 FG
- Dwyane Wade DNP
Miami sported their nickname jerseys. Blah…
And I’ll share a little joke of mine that drew some laughs on Twitter:
