Just Like Magic, The Celtics Are Back!

THAT, is a little more like it. The Celtics snapped out of whatever funk they were in for the first month of the season and put a big, big hurt on Dwight Howard, Glen Davis and the rest of the Magic.

Wow. Just soak in that final score for a moment. Wow.

  • 56 points allowed - that should help those silly team defensive rankings a bit, ya think?
  • Apparently that's a record low for Orlando and ties a record low allowed by the Celtics.
  • Celtics were without Rajon Rondo, Ray Allen, Keyon Dooling, Chris Wilcox, and Mickael Pietrus.
  • Sasha Pavlovic started. Usually you'd think that would be cause for concern, but he held his own.
  • Sounds like Jeff Green made an appearance in the locker room before the game. Might have been an inspirational lift.
  • Oh Captain my Captain. It is sooooo good to see you back.
  • Kevin Garnett posted a double double and frustrated Dwight Howard all night.
  • Brandon Bass stepped up with a huge game off the bench.
  • Meanwhile, after getting his tribute video and ovation, Big Baby shot 2-9 and finished with 6 points.
  • Another day, another solid effort by Avery Bradley, who outplayed Jameer Nelson - Bradley is lookin' like a keeper folks.
  • Sounds like Rondo should be able to play on Thursday - which is welcome news.

More of this please. Lots, lots more of this.
