Must C’s: Celtics shower Semi Ojeleye after career night

It was a career night for Semi Ojeleye. His career-best 22 points helped a depleted Celtics team win in Cleveland on the back end of a back-to-back. Without Kemba Walker, Jaylen Brown, and Gordon Hayward, Semi lead a bench mob of first and second year players in a nice bounce back performance after Tuesday’s debacle against the Nets. And it what’s become customary for Boston, his teammates celebrated his big game with a post-game interview shower:

After scoring twelve points in the second quarter and helping build a 13-point lead, it was questionable that Ojeleye would return to the floor after getting kneed in the groin and prematurely heading back to the locker room before halftime.

Thankfully, he returned for the second half and made several clutch plays down the stretch including that big 3 to close out the Cavaliers.
