Tonight, the Celtics continued their great play with a 109-101 victory over the Sixers. They didn't dominate as much as I thought they would, but I won't complain about this one. Going into it there was no guarantee that they would even win, so I'm happy. Avery Bradley was definitely the C's best player, with a team-high 22 points. The old guys Garnett and Pierce continued to age with 18 points each.
Tonight's USOTN goes to the performance of Jordan Crawford. Crawford has started his Celtics career a little slow, but scored a nice 12 points tonight. He shot 4/7 from the field, with two of those makes being three-pointers. I look at this as his turning point, and I expect him to do this every night from now on. Thanks for the effort.
There wasn't really anyone who played bad tonight. Even Terrence Williams, who didn't score, was able to get two assists. Green seemed to make a lot of shots, as he had 16. He seems to have evolved into a very good player. It was a great night for Celtics-Nation, and let's do it again tomorrow.
Love seeing Crawford find his groove. Doc has told him to shoot and he's listening. Doc sat Williams for the Jazz game because he shot too much. Doc wants Williams to be the playmaker and Crawford to be the shooter.
I'd love to see Randolph or White tonight to counter the Pacers rebounding since they are first in the league in rebounding.
