Celtics Make It 4 Games In A Row Defeating Magic (120-105)
Rajon Rondo was looking great in his warm up pregame as he did running and cutting drills with the strength coach showing the fans that he is on his way back. Rondo has also showcased his new sneaker endorsement with Anta and has left Nike. Rondo has been trying to come back from the ACL tear and has been working very hard to get back on the court to help his team. One thing I have noticed with Rondo is that he has been apart of everything that happens with the team and he wants to be the leader and show that he can in fact lead the team without Pierce,KG and Terry.
On that note the Celtics came into tonights game on a 3 game winning streak and riding off Jeff Green’s last second shot on Lebron and the Heat. Celtics had jumped to an early lead in the game against the Magic as Avery Bradley showcased his shooting ability in the first half and his great defense in the second. Jordan Crawford had one of his best performances as a Celtic as he finished with 16 points 5 rebounds and 10 assists. Crawford has been starting at the point guard position which has been a little different for him knowing that he is a pure shooter but, Head Coach Brad Stevens is going with what has been working and it is still working. The Celtics played together tonight beating the Magic in a team effort as they scored over 100 points for the first time at home in the short season. The Celtics at one point in the game were shooting 62% from the field and were basically making every single thing they put up and seemed like they could miss. This Celtics win was very balanced and everyone took advantage of the minutes given to them as 7 Celtics players scored double digits which is very impressive.
The Celtics will face the Bobcats on Wednesday and can actually attempt to go for 5 games in a row. Everyone was in panic mode with the 0-4 start but the Celtics and Stevens have given the Celtics fans a reason to still have Celtics Pride.
