Down in Miami, the Celtics shot the lights out. It was a pretty to behold, high scoring, high flying win. This was tougher, grittier, harder. The Celtics showed their heart in this game.
Think about this. The Celtics shot 19% worse last night than they did in Miami. And they still won. Thanks mostly to Rajon Rondo. Who recorded yet another triple-double. 10 points, 10 rebounds, and 20 (yes, 20) assists. That's 19 straight games with 10+ assists for Rondo.
He made all four of his free throws.
The Celtics could be the most dangerous team in the NBA once the playoffs start.
They're up in Toronto Friday night, the start of back-to-back-to-back games and 4 road games in 5 days.
