Rajon Rondo dazzled, Otis Smith started pounding shots of whiskey after watching Brandon Bass, the Celtics took far too long to wake up, Carmelo Anthony is pretty freaking good, Kevin Garnett decided to put hands on Billy Walker’s neck after missing a jumper at the buzzer, Joey Crawford thinks he’s the reason fans buy tickets, Sasha Pavlovic is still Sasha Pavlovic, and fourth quarter offense might still be Boston’s downfall, at least while Paul Pierce remains injured.
More thoughts to come later, but for now it’s Christmas. Merry Christmas and happy holidays, everyone.
P.S. – What a game.
