Every Celtic whose initials aren't made up of the first three letters of the alphabet had a great showing tonight. Jeff Green caught fire with 27 points (11-19 FG, 5-12 3pt), Kris Humphries (20 points, 11 rebounds) and Rajon Rondo (11 points, 18 assists) both had double-doubles, Kelly Olynyk has picked up from where he left with 18 points and 6 rebounds, and Jared Sullinger joined in with 14 points and 8 rebounds. Jerryd Bayless's 15 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists and Phil Pressey's 6 assists, 2 steals and 1 block (take a shot!) were also valuable in the win.
The Celtics take on the slumping Pacers (oh the Eastern Conference, when will you stop surprising us?) on Tuesday. Rondo has been an awesome leader for the team since the Birthdaygate, and it wouldn't really shock me if the Celtics pull off a surprise win that night.
