    Celts played sooo hard last night

    Paul and Kevin and Pietrus and just about all of them during the fourth quarter turned the clock back a couple of years and gave huge efforts.  They just willed the win.  They struggled because of the lack of a true NBA point but they made the difference up with heart.  They even got Ray some shots and he looked like the real Ray Allen for a few minutes.  Just for a few minutes they looked like the NBA champs. The lack of all around point and the missing inside threat will spell their doom, but I was just amazed at the huge effort last night.

    Wilcox brings a good inside presence.

    Even nonchalant Rondo played with some ABrad-like zeal in 4th quarter spurts.... against a nearly dysfunctional Knick team.

    I noticed something last night about Rondo and Bradley.

    During the games Rondo was out and even last night, the ball doesn't move as well and the offense gets stagnant when he's running it. He pounds the ball, pounds the ball and the shot clock ticks down. I saw it clearly last night.

    When Bradley is in the game, the ball is moving and the offense flows better. It could be because Bradley isnt always looking to make the hero play. He doesn't look to score to much but the ball isn't in his hands as long as it is in Rondo's hands.

    I'm not saying get rid of Rondo but I think with Bradley playing more the offense seems to flow better.

    Rondo gets into the offense with about 15 seconds left. He is a great passer cause he sees the court well AND he passes to three hall of gamers to be who get open and score. Bradley gets over half court and passes to Paul with 20 seconds. Completely different offensive sets. Both effective when executed well.

    The ball moves much better with Bradley or even Moore in the game.

    Not hero passes but simple, basic basketball 101 passes... that get everyone involved in the flow of the game.

    And the floor is spaced better too, allowing for everyone to go to work and make plays/passes to the open man.

    Rondo is fixated on standing back with ball in hand.... pounding, pounding, pounding.... and then collecting dimes.

    Stagnant, predictable offense.

    Definitely a good win....even if it was against the porous Knicks.

    Even in a win, folks just have to find ways to bash Rondo.  When he wasnt playing it was trade him.  Now that he's back and we win, it's still not enough.

    AB is not ready to run the Celtics offense.  His passes are tentaive and shakey. No Rondo equals Paul ball, where the ball gets stick in his ISOs.  What's the difference?

    Stop beating on Rondo, it's boring and repititive. He's just getting back from an injury layoff and is obviously rusty. I like Avery, too, but he isn't close to what Rondo is offensively. They were playing side by side for a while; interesting guard combo.
    P.S. Isn't Rondo more of a "pure" point guard than D.J. was?

    and when he passes, he stays in the same spot most of the times...bradley quickly cuts after the pass

    I think that Moore might be a more pure point than all the ones you mentioned.

    With JO and Ray back they had to play hard. Everybody else has to make up the difference.

    Jeeze Louise, it was his first game back after two weeks. And call me crazy, but I'm thinking the offense will be better with the NBA's second-leading assist man in the lineup.
