Deja Vu Averted

The Celtics were flat on Friday and lost to a team they had no business losing to.  You would think that they would keep the throttle down tonight, but not so much.  After building a 20 point lead early in the 2nd quarter, they let the Wolves maintain that margin by trading baskets for much of the game.  Then the Wolves made a run in the 4th forcing Doc to insert the starters back in the game.  Where's the killer instinct?  Like Tommy said, when you go up big early, go for a 50 point win.  Oh well, it ended up being a large win anyway.  I just hope they can shake this trend.

  • Question for number 42: Who are you and what have you done with Tony Allen?  I only ask so I can welcome you to the team and make sure you disposed of the body properly. (15 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, and zero turnovers)
  • Pierce was a perfect 6 for 6 from three point range.  Gotta love that.
  • We may have seen the play of the year with that Eddie House around the back save to Tony for the facial dunk and the foul.
  • There was a nice encore with Rondo lefty-spin-long-bounce pass to Tony who put a wraparound pass into Perkins' hands for the easy slam.
  • Al Jefferson still has it.  Nice to see.
  • I will say, the goodwill I have for that team with Big Al and Ryan Gomes is nearly negated by the presence of Rambis and Laimbeer.
  • Johnny Flynn (go Syracuse!) sure can play, can't he?
  • Rondo keeps racking up the assists.  15 tonight to go with his 13 points.  All Star.  Period.
  • Seven, count 'em, seven players in double figures (and Eddie added 7).
  • Tommy had some fun with the fact that there were only 2 refs (due to the snow).  Good times.
  • According to Jessica Camerato: "Celtics improved to 4-0 when scoring more than 30 points in the first quarter. They are also 4-0 on Sundays."
