Team Barometer, to say the least

If there is one player on this team whose statistical success comes and goes with the Celtics winning and losing, it is that of backup shooting guard Eddie House.

It has been said in the past that Eddie House is the Celtics' 'team barometer'. When Eddie is taking and making open jumpers, the team is moving the ball nicely and executing on offense. Eddie's 16 point performance last night, which included 5-9 field goal shooting, 2-4 3-point shooting, and a perfect 4 of 4 from the free-throw line, was a tell-tale sign of how well the Celtics are playing as a team.

With Paul Pierce out of the game with a sore left foot, it was only necessary that others pick up some of the scoring slack. With Rondo and KG passing the ball like a hot potato (14 and 9 assists), players were getting more opportunities to score. Ray Allen found some light at the end of the tunnel, scoring 23 points, while Rondo added 22 to his magnificent all-star stat line, which included 14 assists, 6 rebounds and 3 steals.

And let it be known that 5 the 16 points Eddie tossed in last night were in the fourth-quarter. One play included a fast break lay-up, something you don't see from Mr. House on a nightly basis. It can be said of Eddie that he hasn't been having a great season, but then again, the entire team has hit some rough terrain this year, thus proving tat Eddie House is the ideal measurement of the team's success.
