The Celtics were down by 10 in the 4th quarter, but they took a page from the Pacers after last nights game and the C's put on the defensive clamps.

Green had 16, Bradley had 12, Bass had a team-high 17 points, and Sullinger was solid with 15 points and 9 rebounds.

Because of Rondo's injury, it's been difficult to write about him this summer. We do not know when he will return, and we cannot know what sort of player he will be then, and we don't know if he will come back to the Celtics, and we don't know how well he will fit in if he does come back. Trying to figure out what has happened over the past few months feels a bit like reading tea leaves, as the loudest comments seem to be coming from those whose words are tailored to their agendas...Read Full Post »
