Magic Lack Spark, C's Win

Another nice win against a quality opponent and the C's avenged another of their few losses this year.  Some notes:

  • Gotta hand it to the Comcast crew's stats guys.  When the lead hit 20, I was wondering how many games the C's have led by 20.  A minute later Gorman mentioned that this was the 15th time.  Wow.
  • Another stat: This is the first time since 1999 that the C's had 4 players with 20 or more points.
  • Rondo was feeling it from the field today, with two three pointers!  (His first of the season)  A career high of 23 points.
  • Toss in 6 assists and that's a great game for Rajon.
  • I think Pierce must be one of the best in the league at making bad shots.  I don't know exactly how I feel about that, but it does come in handy sometimes.  He hit two that I can remember with the clock running down that he had no business making.
  • 3 pointers kept the Magic in the game (sort of) but they didn't have much else to throw at the C's until Howard started getting some dunks in the 4th.
  • Perkins is great for defense and rebounding, but he is just so awkward offensively.
  • Ray Allen had a solid shooting night, which is always nice to see.  I think a healthy set of ankles makes a big difference for his shot.
  • Once again, Gorman nailed it when he said that we have come a long way when the lead gets cut to 9 points, we get a little upset.  We have come to expect double digit leads.  What a great feeling.
  • So, is there any question anymore who the 4th best player is on this team?  Rondo has that title locked up.
