I love this picture. I wonder if that was the rebound Rondo got over Gooden. It is just a great picture with 4 of the 5 starters taking off for a break up the court.
Rondo had another great game. He didn't score alot, but he set the pace and made some great assists. He finished with 4 points, 5 rebounds, 15 assists, and 4 steals. Anyone doubts that this kid is for real, really hasn't been paying attention.
KG finished with 17 points, 1 rebound, 4 assists, 4 steals and 2 blocks. He joked about the 1 rebound in his press conference and said that between Perk and Rondo he can't get any rebounds anymore.
Paul Pierce had a solid game with 16 points, 4 rebounds, 6 assists, and 2 steals. It seems that he quietly fills up the stat sheet every night. Good to see that there are no linger effects of the knee injury.
Gabe played 13 minutes in this game and here is going for the save against Linsey Hunter. He finished with 3 points, 2 rebounds and 1 assist. I like Gabe. He has been playing good defense and has a smooth shot. I am happy to see him getting some playing time.
Tony had a decent game with 10 points, 4 assists and 2 steals. One of his steals led to a windmill dunk on the other end. Scal had 5 points, 4 rebounds, and 1 block and even hit a hook shot. Didn't know he had that in him!
Wow... just wow! Lucky sure catches some air. It's a wonder he doesn't break something.
Perk was a beast in this game pure and simple. He finished with a career high 25 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assists, 1 steal and a monster block on Ben Gordon. Have I mentioned lately that I love Perk?
Leon again moved ahead of Big Baby in minutes in this game and finished with 6 points, 3 rebounds, and 1 assist in 14:41. They don't keep stats on the number of charges taken, but Leon has to lead the league in that stat. He gets plowed over more than the streets of Boston in a snow storm. What a tough kid! Big Baby played 13 minutes and finished with 4 points, 1 rebound and 1 assist.
Ray played the most minutes of any starter at 33. The rest of the starters all played 30 minutes or less. Ray had his stroke going tonight and got more than his share of open looks and hit 10-18 from the field for 27 points to go with 3 rebounds and 5 assists. Ray's stringent pregame routine was altered before this game as he had to arrive early due to the snowstorm but it didn't seem to bother his game any.
Another great picture. My goodness... When did Rondo get built like that?!?!? No wonder he always gets up when he takes those hard hits. That's Usain Bolt in the picture with them. First we had Michael Phelps and now Usain Bolt. The Lakers may have their movie stars but the Celtics have Olympic greats.
