Celtics build a brick house, lose to Mavs 91 - 102

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

Bad shooting night.

Both teams started the game off cold.  The result was a close game at halftime.  Then the Mavs picked things up in the 3rd and the Celtics didn't.  Boston made an effort to make things interesting with a mini-run in the final minutes but didn't have enough time to make things interesting.

Highlights:

  • Jeff Green was aggressive AND efficient, getting 18 on 6-15 shooting.
  • Rajon Rondo missed a triple double by 2 rebounds (15, 8, 12)
  • Chris Johnson added 14 bench points in just 15 minutes.
  • Sullinger added another 12 rebounds.

Lowlights (just about everything else)

  • The Celtics finished the game shooting 35.9% on 33-92 shooting.
  • Avery Bradley doesn't look like he's fully recovered from his ankle injury.
  • Brandon Bass was in foul trouble early and often.
