After our win against the college aged Kings on Tuesday and the Kobe less Lakers last night it wasn't time to get excited about the post all-star break Celtics yet. Until today. They spanked the Oregon out of the Blazers. Ray Allen found the fountain of youth on some island over the break and we're ready to make some noise now. 96-76 easy win.
  • Glen Davis was huge. 10 points and 2 big charges.
  • Ray looks at ease now that the deadline is over. His shot is ON. Now that his contract has no value trade wise, the smart move will be to resign him in the Summer. 21 points tonight. 
  • Scal might have thrown the worst inbounds pass ever. Glad he was subbed in for that final 4 seconds of the 3rd. And you wonder why Ainge didn't get a plethora of offers for him?
  • Celtics sure love their technicals. One each on 'Sheed, Perk, and Rondo tonight. The first two will be seeing one game suspensions pretty soon.
  • I think by TB's count. Rasheed had 7 "Ball Don't Lies" in the game.
  • Our all-stars got some much needed rest. KG, Rajon and Paul with 22, 31, and 26 minutes respectively.
  • Brandon Roy was a surprise return to Portland's line-up, but didn't look healthy at all. 9 points only.
  • Shelden Williams is in fact alive and saw the floor for the final two garbage minutes.
  • Blazers simply looked lousy, but the Celtics get a lot of credit for a solid all around effort on the back end of the back to back (Someone please edit this, so it doesn't say "back" three times. Thanks).
A win Sunday afternoon would be huge. Looks like Nate Robinson does in fact have the flu and shouldn't be available until Tuesday. Denver won't be easy, but Celtics fans should be feeling more confident right now then they have in several weeks.

      Wow what a review- quickly written and 2 photos! Unbelievable lol.

      Yeah the defensive intensity in the first half was terrific. Glen Davis and Ray Allen were why the Celtics won this game.

      And Sheed had 5 Ball Dont Lies!

      KG looked very good again tonight, great sign.

      Must get Pierce back in rhythm, he is not full strength.

      Watching Ray work like that tonight was special.

      Great win, go get them Nuggets.

      Ray was awesome tonight...this game reminded me of the 07/08 team. Everybody contributed, KG looked healthier, Ray's shot was on and the defense was there. GRRREAT game!

      Nice recap! Encouraging game for a lot of reasons I think you covered and I have a couple ongoing criticisms:

      -TA again showed why he is a poster child for the great athletic ability/low basketball IQ lacking solid fundamental guy we see at all levels.

      -Scal seems like a good guy and a hard worker, but a roster spot in the NBA?

      whos new on the roster of the greens?

      @^ Nate Robinson and Marcus Landry, both out injured/sick.

      After watching this game via the interweb (using NOT nba leagepass broadband), I was pleasantly surprised, I think there was a combination of lack of effort from the Blazers on Defense, and a well-prepared, sharp-looking Celtics team, performing like they've had 3 days rest (despite have less than 24 hours after a very tough game). I'm excited for today's game, though have already declared this roadtrip a Borat-esque "great success".
