Kevin Garnett was inactive for the Boston Celtics. Paul Pierce and Ray Allen should have just stayed with him in the locker room. The two remaining members of the Big Three that didn't have hip injuries made a grand total of four field goals between them. They attempted 16 shots.
Rajon Rondo played his heart out, scoring a career-high 35 points. Of course, some would say that Rondo sabotaged the game for the rest of the team, scoring a career-high 35 points. Chris Wilcox had another effective game as he was thrust back into the starting lineup. JaJuan Johnson saw a bunch of minutes for the second straight game and played pretty decent for the second straight game.
This is pretty much the story of the 2011-12 Boston Celtics. One day, they'll look like the scariest team on the face of the earth as they take down a championship favorite in the Chicago Bulls. The next day, they'll look like a cream puff squad and lay down to the lowest of the low in the NBA. It's frustrating, it's mind-boggling and it makes you want to throw your shoe through the television. But it is what it is.
I'll have more later, once I pull my Adidas out of my Vizio. Product placement, anyone?
