Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
The Celtics, despite losing Rondo for the season, won today's game. It took then two overtimes, but I'll take it. This was all defense for both teams, as the final score was just 100-98. Garnett led the Celtics with 24 points, followed by Pierce with 17 and Terry with 13. Lebron led the Heat with 34 points, followed by Allen with 21 and Wade with 17.
Today's USOTN goes to the performance of Leandro Barbosa. Barbosa had a great game as he had 9 points, 3 rebounds, and 4 assists. There is a chance that Barbosa will be Rondo's replacement along with Lee and Bradley. He played very hard today and I'm surprised that his stats weren't better. Thanks for the effort, Leandro.
It is impossible to predict what will happen to the Celtics without Rondo. It really depends on what Danny Ainge thinks. Is this a lost season? Can they still make a title run? Should they make a trade, or stick with what they have? We will just have to wait for the season to unfold.
BEST OF MAXIM

Boston has always had a history of having at least one future hall-of-fame player on their roster. Now that Pierce and Garnett are at the end of their NBA career, the Celtics as a franchise are looking to remain relevant. The loss of Rajon Rondo makes it that much more difficult to see who on the roster will stand-up and say "I am a Celtic."
The Celtics both won and lost on Sunday afternoon.
Boston left the TD Garden with a 100-98 double overtime win against the Heat in the return of Ray Allen. Before the clock struck zero it had already been confirmed that the Celtics will be without Rajon Rondo for the remainder of the season due to a torn right ACL.

Safe to say this would be the worst possible scenario. There’s still no diagnosis yet, and this is just something that they fear… but it’s not great news.

There are a couple of points I would like to hit on before I dive into this glorious trade you see above. Over the past few days many Celtics’ bloggers have written various articles saying that Jeff Green needs to be inserted into the starting lineup over Paul Pierce. That it would allow Green to run with Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley while allowing Pierce to a primary scorer...
