A (Christmas) tree grows (defense) in Brooklyn

Get it? A tree grows in Brooklyn. The Celtics are growing their defense. On Christmas. I kill me. (crickets)

Anyhoo.

Boston Celtics show off defense that often is missing - ESPN Boston

There was nothing not to like about this one from the Celtics' vantage point. The 76 points allowed marked the fewest of the season scored by a Boston opponent. The defense put up the kind of numbers we've been used to seeing over the past five years: In addition to the meager output, the Nets shot just 40.6 percent from the field and 35 percent from 3-point territory.

Yay defense. More please.
