Celtics offense looks healthy in Brooklyn preseason game

It is early yet, and Doc spent time cautioning people that it will take time for all these new pieces to figure out how to fit together. But this is a nice taste of what things could look like when hitting on all cylinders.

Seven players finished in double figures led by Courtney Lee and Paul Pierce who contributed 18 each. Pierce and Terry were a perfect combined 9 for 9 from 3 point land. Meanwhile the Nets mustered just 85 points.

One fun dynamic is the running game.

Green Street " Fast Break: Celtics find their groove in rout over Nets

Jason Terry and Courtney Lee on the break: After years of watching the Celtics not run with Rondo, it’s a little strange to see backcourt partners who can’t wait to get up and down the floor with him. Lee’s young legs and athleticism were an obvious draw when he was acquired him from Houston, but Terry has been a bit of a revelation in transition. His favorite move is to hang back as the trailer and wait for Rondo to find him for wide-open 3′s on the secondary break, while Lee is straight speed to the rim. Lee finished with 18 points on 8-for-12 shooting, while Terry made all 5 of his 3-pointers for 15 points. The roles will sort themselves out, but it seems clear that Rondo will have plenty of options next to him this season.

That's gotta make Tommy smile. ("Run baby, run!")
