The above quote is from Jae Crowder regarding the opportunity to play a postseason game at the TD Garden.  Who would have ever though he'd have the chance to say something like that this season?

When the Celtics acquired Crowder in the Rajon Rondo deal, imagine what kind of odds you might've gotten on betting he'd outscore Rondo in this year's playoffs?  After just two games, that's already happened.  With Rondo apparently done for the season and his free-agent departure looming, Boston has already won the trade with Crowder's presence alone.

How crazy is that?  Not to mention the draft picks the Celtics have coming their way:

With Boston set to host the Cavs in Game 3, Crowder said a number of things this week sure to get Celtics fans fired up for tonight's contest:

While discussing the deal he made with the Mavericks back in December this morning, Danny Ainge expressed his affection for the Celtics' forward:

Crowder is a restricted free agent with a $1.2 million qualifying offer on the table for Boston next season.  Rondo is already just memory in Dallas, and a painful one at that.
