A lot of people used the term "rock bottom" to describe the Celtics current state, but I'll take a lackluster loss over an injury any day. So the fact that no one got hurt and all three of our all-stars appear to be healthy means I'm not going to get "rock bottom" down today. And yes the lone bright spot was Kemba Walker who may be shooting himself out of his slump.
Walker went for a season high 25 points this afternoon. He hit four of his seven 3-point attempts after connecting on five in his last outing. Ands probably more importantly he finally hit some shots inside the arc (five of eleven on 2's). And the eye test showed a guard with more swagger and confidence out there.
Kemba added 7 rebounds (Wonder what his career high is?) and 2 steals. His one negative was his 2 assists to his 5 turnovers. But let's be honest Kemba isn't really a point guard. He plays point guard because of his size, but he's never going to be a big assists guy. The Kemba of the past two games is the Walker we'll need in the playoffs.
