Celtics Avoid Rock Bottom; Defeat Wizards

Well, it wasn't always pretty, but a W looks lovely to me. It was also relieving to see Paul Pierce look like The Truth again.

  • Blatche had a fast start, but Kevin Garnett ended up getting the better of the matchup with 17 points on 7 of 10 shooting.
  • John Wall can play. I was hoping that Avery Bradley would slow him down some, but no such luck.
  • To his credit though, Bradley picked up the slack in terms of minutes after Ray Allen left the game with a jammed ankle, logging a team high 41 minutes. Ahh youth.
  • Another day, another solid contribution from Mikael Pietrus and Brandon Bass. Those guys are the key to our bench.
  • Transition defense left something to be desired. The Wizards had a lot of fast break looks.

Would have much rather gotten a comfortable win over these guys, but beggars can't be choosers at this point. No Rondo, no Dooling, no Ray Allen, and I'd say we're lucky things didn't go worse. Next!

(Go Pats!)
