Courtney Lee is starting to hit shots, still playing defense

See, I told you it would only be a matter of time.

Shots start falling for Lee - Boston Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

Lee finished the night with 13 points on 4-of-8 shooting to go along with a team-high nine rebounds, three assists, and some steady defense against a strong corps of Brooklyn guards. It was a positive sign for a player who has been plagued by inconsistency of late -- something every Boston role player has seemed to have dealt with at one time or another this season -- and it was welcome production for a Celtics team playing without Rajon Rondo.

Doc is happy.

"Courtney just came out and played," said Rivers. "He didn't think about if he was starting or not starting, or how many minutes, who's playing. He played basketball tonight, and when he does that, he's a great basketball player. And I thought, defensively, he was our best defensive player on the floor. I thought he was fantastic."

He's going to be an important part of this team this year.
