Celtics Claw Past Bobcats

Plain and simple: The Celtics, particularly in the second half, had it going on tonight. They dismantle the Bobcats, 104-80. The highlights:

  • Paul Pierce silenced his recent critics with 27 points, four assists, and three steals. 
  • Solid, well-balanced line for KG tonight: 12 points, five rebounds, four assists, and four blocks.
  • GINO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • It's the Celtics' first double-digit win at home since December 20. 
  • It was Pierce's first 20-point game since January 29.
  • Nate Robinson was burying buckets all night. He had 16 points when it was all said and done. 
  • Celtics as a team shot 10-16 from three-point nation. 
  • The C's recorded 27 assists on 38 baskets. The ball was moving all night. 
  • The C's held Gerald Wallace and Stephen Jackson to 5-15 shooting and 16 points, combined
  • No starters had to play in the fourth quarter. 

Overall, the Celtics still aren't back to where they need to be, but this was most definitely a step in the right direction. Solid, solid win for this group tonight. Great to see. Great energy from everyone. Great spirit. The players actually looked like they were enjoying themselves.
